ARVA EVO4 community reviews

EVO4 is a simple and handy three-antenna transceiver made by ARVA. The target audience of this device is the users who looking for lower priced devices first of all. EVO4 is the successor of EVO3+ and has a lot of advantages over its predecessor. For instance, ARVA’s technicians have improved the suppression of the signal received from victim’s beacon – the technology that is vital during multi-burial search – and, consequently, added full-fledged marking of the found victims. Besides, EVO4 has Group check mode, which is necessary for testing the team's transceivers' capacity before descent from the mounting.

The EVO4 harness is equipped with a key that turn on the transceiver once it has been buckled up. When it comes to the fine search, the transceiver has to be put off the body. In order to do that one should either take off outerwear or deactivate the transceiver to unbuckle the harness. This may be rather inconvenient during the search operation. But need to clarify fine search and spikes are flawless.

According to the review from the website Beaconreviews, the strong point of EVO4 is simplicity. It turns on once its been buckled up and it has just two control keys. The first one switches between transmission and searching modes. The other one activates marking during multi-burial search. The device also has a bright display with a user-friendly interface. And also EVO4 is price-friendly beacon. Cons are the fine search process (just because you need take off harness), bulkiness, and a comparatively small range of signal reception.
