If you make a living teaching avalanche courses or otherwise value squeezing the most utility out of your avalanche transceiver, the ARVA Neo BT Pro is here to push the envelope. Boasting a massive 80 meters of search strip width, the search range can be pushed even further to 90 meters in analog mode (complemented by automatic sensitivity calibration). Other high-end capabilities include scrolling, which lets the rescuer toggle between victims in a multiple-burial scenario, automatic revert-to-transmit, which senses a lack of motion should a second avalanche bury the rescuer while in search mode, and standby mode, which eliminates interference when you have already begun the fine search and shoveling portion of a rescue. Beyond these powerful features, the BT Pro is Bluetooth-compatible, making it possible to use the ARVA app to set up the beacon, plan a route or even practice rescues. It’s safe to say you will be exploring the feature set of the BT Pro for years to come!
