Backcountry Access Announces Software Update for TRACKER2 Tranceivers Author: Jun 29, 2020 BOULDER, CO (June 29, 2020) – Backcountry Access, Inc. (BCA) has announced a software update specifically and exclusively for its Tracker2 avalanche transceivers. The company recommends that all Tracker2 owners take advantage of this update. This software update improves functionality during power-saving mode. After 12 hours without user input, Tracker2 enters into power-saving mode and begins emitting an audible beep every two minutes to let you know you are in lower power mode. In power-saving mode, the Tracker2 transmit pulse can vary slightly from the international standard. All avalanche transceiver brands must operate on the same international standard to ensure interoperability. To keep your transceiver out of power-saving mode, simply turn the transceiver off and on or check the battery power level at least once a day. In addition, BCA strongly recommends that all users follow best practices as described in the Tracker2 manual to ensure all transceivers are functioning properly before venturing into the backcountry. This includes a transceiver trailhead test every time you use your Tracker2, routinely checking that all transceivers in your party transmit and receive properly, and that your Tracker2 has sufficient battery power. To obtain the Tracker2 software update, go to www.backcountryaccess.com/T2update and fill out the software update request form. Once your form is processed, you will receive an email with information on how to ship your Tracker2 to the distributor in your region. BCA will pay for incoming and return shipping on all units submitted for updates. The software update is exclusively available for the BCA Tracker2 model of avalanche transceivers.
