Finding It

The Element has all the “basic” functions available on the more advanced, dual-platform Pulse (see sidebar), including a handy group test and a mark function that blocks located beacons. The large LCD display is easy to read and understand, and the software is upgradable, which means you don’t have to buy a new unit every few years to keep up with improving technology.
