Ortovox Diract Voice: Avalanche Transceiver with Innovative Voice Navigation

In an emergency, it can be a matter of seconds: When rescuing avalanche victims, speed is of the essence. The rescuers themselves are often stressed or even in shock – the search in rough terrain is a huge challenge. Until now, rescuers had to rely on the visual signals on the small displays of their avalanche beacons. With Diract Voice by Ortovox comes the first avalanche transceiver that guides you to the victims with clear and distinct spoken instructions – a quantum leap that should dramatically speed up the search.

Jury Statement

"The new Ortovox Diract Voice is a game changer for the avalanche transceiver market, as it is the first device with voice support. This makes searching for avalanche victims easier and ideally faster for searchers. The voice function seemed to the jury to be a long overdue feature that Ortovox has finally implemented in a sleek, compact and reasonably priced new device. Worth mentioning is also the rechargeable low-temperature battery as well as the constant self-test of the device to avoid malfunctions. An innovative device with high user value for the currently fast-growing touring scene."
