The Arva NEO+ transceiver represents the ongoing evolution present in Arva products as an updated version of the NEO. With this in mind, the NEO+ brings with it a new era of efficient and effective searches. Through innovative design and software optimisation the NEO+ is now capable of pushing the search strip width to 70m. The NEO+ also features a motion sensor to automatically switch back to transmission mode if movement is not detected for a period of time, such as in the event of a secondary avalanche. The included holster keeps the transceiver stable when worn and has been designed to protect the search button to prevent an accidental mode switch.
Upon turning on the device, the Auto-Check feature will check your battery levels and ensure that the AXIO is functioning properly prior to setting off, and the Group-Check feature can ensure that each member of your party has their transceivers properly configured to transmit mode. Automatic switch back to transmission mode can be configured based on user inactivity or a lack of motion in the event of a secondary avalanche, meaning that you do not have to be concerned about your transceiver remaining on search. Clever marking functions allow you to mark a victim once found to ignore their signal so you can continue your search for more victims if required.
As with all avalanche safety equipment, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with your equipment in a safe environment to ensure you know how it works when disaster strikes.
