Ortovox had a simple objective when developing and designing their newest avalanche transceiver: create an intuitive, contemporary design and back it up with the best technology available. The result of these efforts, is the Zoom+. The device only has two buttons, making it very difficult to use incorrectly, the on/off switch and a safety switch which changes the device from search mode to transmission mode, depending on whether the user is the rescuer or the victim. It also has a large LED screen which displays instructions when applicable. In search mode, the LED arrows direct the user towards the movement it is picking up, while displaying the the transceiver’s distance from the motion, it will also indicate if there is more than one victim. The outside edge is made of soft rubber to ensure solid handling and an elastic loop and carrying case are also included to make sure the device is with you when you need it. The Zoom+ runs a fully diagnostic check on itself each time it is turned on to ensure it is operating properly, it runs on a single AA battery which will last 250 hours in transmission mode and has a range of 40 meters.
