The Pieps Micro is a small and exceptionally light 3 antenna beacon, it has been designed as a replacement to the Pieps Freeride which has now been banned from competition use (and is pretty much obsolete). Although aimed at skimo racing the performance of the Micro still compares to more standard sized transceivers, though the reason most transceivers are around the same size is due to the required physical size of the antennas.
The Micro does have some good features including a vibration alert when it first detects a signal and Bluetooth connectivity which allows for setting changes and updating the firmware via a computer. It has a mark mode and a Search To Send function. It also only requires a single AA battery which keeps the weight down for both the device and carrying a spare.
Despite the small size of the device the display remains large and there is a mark button above the screen. The search functions in the same way as the other Pieps transceivers with a 5 way directional arrow. In the case of a multi burial situation it detects multiple signals (1, 2, 3 and 4+) which can be marked using the button allowing you to continue the search.
This transceiver is aimed at those who are looking for the smallest and lightest device. There aren't a lot of adjustable settings so most people will be able to use the Micro effectively assuming they have knowledge of search and rescue techniques including using the device in a multi burial situation.
