Mammut Element community reviews
Mammut Element – is a digital triple-antenna avalanche transceiver. The model is easy to use and suits both beginners and professionals. It has a 60m signal receiving range and a 50m search stripe width. The Element features a simple and intuitive interface, a single button for control and tuning and one switch for changing between modes. If the user moves away from the search object, the Element shows the U-turn icon (as in some modern transceivers). The sound signal is loud and intuitive, the tone of the signal gets higher as the user approaches the object.
According to beaconreviews.com, the precise search feature is somewhat convoluted. The display has a motionless double-sided arrow on it, indicating whether the user should move back or straight ahead in order to find the shortest distance to the victim. This feature allows you to find a victim faster, however, it can be difficult to understand for beginners.
During the search for multiple victims, the Element can mute the previously found signal (which is the signal of the closest bleeper), and thereby label the object. This means, right after you’ve found the first victim, you have to press the labeling button. After you’ve done that, the transceiver will show you the distance and direction to the next closest victim. Unlike some modern transceivers which can alternately display the distance to all beepers within the receiving range, the Element doesn’t have this feature. Because of this, it’s impossible to plan out the search - you’ll have to look for victims one by one.
Like his older brother Pulse, the Element is equipped with a group check function. Upon turning the transceiver on, the corresponding signal is displayed. During the next 5 seconds, the user must either confirm the switching to this mode or do nothing until the transceiver is switched to the receiving mode.
If there is no signal received during the last 8 minutes or more, the Element automatically switches to the transmission mode. Before doing so, the device warns the user with a sound signal, so you have time to react and cancel this action.
