Black Diamond Recon BT Avalanche Beacon is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beep beep dawgy Let me start by saying BD is making beacons cool again, Pieps has been dipping it's design hand into the nintendo 64 controller style for far too long. It perfectly matches my all-black millennial outerwear but the hit of blue is just enough to find it in my pile of gopro's and vape rigs. This puppy even sends harder than I do, it picked up the practice dummy at 55m when the other searchers had to walk in another 10m, a.k.a. that's fluxing good. I can see how some people don't like the SlideLock button because it FlickLocks itself off track or into a different position if you're not careful but lets be real, care is exactly what you should be taking when sneaking into the backcountry and if you're not being careful with your beacon then consider a resort. *Daps all around*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Continues the Pieps tradition! Have used this numerous times, handed off to students, and would trust this just like all my Pieps before it. I appreciate the simplicity of this model. The only thing I've noticed is the slide lock, although an improvement, it looks like it could use some more engineering. Pros: -Trailhead check mode is the best on the market. Checks within 1meter but doesn't get messed up if you're too close, and it goes directly into SEND mode after you let go. I find that most people don't know about this feature but love it once they do. - Like the slide lock better than the old push lock to switch modes, better for larger gloves. However, it appears to need some tweaking. The slide seems to get a little off track and I doubt it will last 5 years. So far so good after a dozen days. - Bluetooth not intrusive and was easy to connect (with instructions). Have not changed settings yet. - Essentially just like my old Pieps.
