I just took an avy course partly taught by a guy who helped design the BCA Tracker 2. His opinion was that some of the others are better in certain ways, but that this one is the simplest, with the fewest potentially-confusing "features." If you're involved in an avalanche you want something easy to use so you don't waste time fiddling with your beacon while you're under stress and your buddy is under the snow. I have a Tracker, and when I upgrade I'll get the Tracker 2.
