Very interesting Indiegogo project that has raised $856,554 and counting after passing its initial funding goal of $75K.
My only concern for our audience is how this device might effect avalanche beacons while in the backcountry? They specifically advertise use of the device while skiing but no mention of its compatibility with use of avalanche transceivers.
Can anyone shed some light on how the use of long-range, low power radio frequencies might effect avalanche beacon signals?
Long-range location tracking that’s dead simple to use. Find friends & kids in crowds, remote areas, at festivals, or anywhere under open sky.
* Works Globally
* Private & Secure
* No Monthly Fees, Phones or ANY Connectivity

Here’s a testimonial from a ski shop employee in Vail:
