The new movement looks like all companies have released a more basic or simpler beacon. Some might say they're more stripped down, but for a recreational user they will work great. Really no need for some of the more advanced features unless you're a guide or SAR. I figure the easier and more straightforward it is to use, the less time will be wasted fumbling around with it if I ever have to use it. I've like the Tracker2 I've had the past few years, but have passed it on. Just picked up a Pieps Tour, after also considering the Mammut Element, Ortovox 3+, and Arva Axis. I hear BCA is coming out with a Tracker3 but wasn't interested in waiting until next year.
