Great Audible 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: kpitchford, 2014-11-12

Great audible altimeter. At first it seemed cumbersome to configure, but there's really not much to it and simple to use. Good and loud. Fits securely in the Cookie Fuel. On the ground, there's no visual indicator to tell you it's on. As a result I've packed it away a few times forgetting to turn it off. Stayed on for over a week. Manufacturer says it's not a problem because it uses very little battery when left on and idle. In the air after passing 1,000ft you'll get some beeps and the ready light will blink letting you know its activated. It's gone off twice under canopy during normal glide. Not really a big deal though. Just caught me by surprise a little. configurable for 1 to 3 altitudes. I have mine set for 2. If all you need is 3 alarms and are fine with increments of 500ft, this is the audible for you.

Nice, accurate and simple dytter 5 out of 5 stars

This little device is a nice complement to my alitmeter, I set the signals to go off just below break and preferred pull altitude, as well as hard deck for reserve deployment. I often forget to turn it off during the week, but have yet to run out of batteries.
The dytter does sometimes go off during manouvers under canopy (Spectre 150), but I don't find that distracting.

The case cracked last year, and L&B replaced it to me for free. I've heard similarly great things about their customer service from many others, and if/when I feel the need for a digital hand alti, it will be an L&B.

Good and useful device 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: TheDoctor2608, 2012-10-04

I do like the Solo II. It's very easy and quick to adjust. The cons i see in this product are that the scale is just in feet. I'm just to meters so it's kind of a mindswitch and a little bit harder to figure out the exact altitute if you jump with other guys. My bigger problem is that i think that the Solo is not loud enough. I often overhear the first alarm and only hear the second when my parachute just openend. This might be because my helmet isn't very isolated against the wind noise. But overall a very useful device i really recommend, especially if you just started skydiving.
