    Full Description

    The Black Diamond Recon X is an update to Black Diamond's transceiver range. It has all the features of the Recon BT transceiver but with additional interference protection in both SEARCH and SEND modes and improved battery life. This protection is designed to reduce the interference from mobile phones and is effective to some extent, however we still recommend keeping phones and other electrical devices either turned off or at least 50cm away from a transceiver if possible.

    Best For

    The Recon X is a straight forward device suitable for recreational users who wants a relatively simple device with a mark function and more than the absolute basic features.


    The Bluetooth connection allows the management of settings, software updates and battery optimization. This is done via a smartphone or tablet using the Pieps mobile app.

    Operation and Search

    The Recon X has a large segmented screen to display all the search information. The search, send, off is controlled by a slider and there is a single button on the front of the device which controls the marking.

    The Recon X has a very good range of 60m, this is also circular in shape rather than elliptical so it's more likely to pick up a signal from further than other transceivers without this detection pattern. The search works in much the same way as other transceivers with distance and direction displayed once a signal is detected.

    Multiple Burials

    For multiple burials the Recon X displays an icon for each different signal received (1, 2, 3 and 4 or more). It will lock onto the strongest signal and guide you to that victim. It has a mark function which will ignore the marked signal so you can search for another victim, leaving others to do the fine search and dig up the person you have already found.

    Additional Functions

    The Recon X features automatic interference protection which allows it to switch between its antennas should it detect interference. It will also display if it detects a signal from an older device which is not transmitting as expected and which may not be detected by other units. It features support for the Pieps iProbe.

    Black Diamond Recon X Beacon
    A very good piece of kit. Super intuitive to use. I registered the beacon via the Pieps app. This extended the guarantee to five years. It also notified me that a software upgrade was available. Software download took all of 35 seconds, via my phone, nice. Recommended.
