I am going to buy the wife and I new beacons. I have narrowed it down to the Tracker 2 or Tracker 3 mainly due to the simplicity of the units. Is there any major benefits of the 3 over the 2? What does the $30ish per unit give me? I also need probes. Any recommendations on where to buy?

the Tracker 3 is a big upgrade from the 2 much easier faster search = better survival chance . I might sell my year old 2 and get a 3

I called BCA about selling my tracker 2 and buying a tracker 3 and they told me to wait until my 5 year warrany was expired before getting the tracker 3. The major difference was in multiple burial situations were you can ignore 1 signal and concentrate on the other one. Was also told that they would trade in my tracker 2 at that point and have a small upgrade fee to get the tracker 3

It sounds like the Tracker 3 is the way to go. As far as the probe I was planning on going with a 300cm. Thank you for all of the info
