The AnaBat Express sports a clever design, which reminds one of a weatherproof Pelican brand case. When attached to a tree (anything except a Birch tree!) it blends-in very well. The Camo pattern is very effective.
Out-of-sight, out-of-mind; this equates to a much lower probability of potential theft or vandalism. There isn't nearly as much concern, as one might have leaving other brand units in the field.
Once the unit is powered-on -- There are three options to choose from:
- Night Only
Titley has provided an interesting feature - The black nylon cord seen attached to the top of the unit, has a magnet inside (the tiny enclosure at the end).
The accuracy of recordings is very good; as well as one would expect from a modern-day, zero crossing recorder.
Small and lightweight.
Very simple operation/Deployment.
Firmware updates are extremely easy.
It is provided with (4GB) SD card and (4AA) batteries.
I feel as though my general impressions regarding The AnaBat Express, were pretty much summed-up in Part 1 of this review. To re-iterate: I like: The size, robust design, the simplicity of operation, and the dependability of this unit.
I'll be adding some AnaBat Express-related screenshots to this post, in the near future. In just a few short days, The Express will be on it's way back to Titley Scientific (here in The US). Thanks again, to Titley for the loan of the unit.
Among the Reviews coming-up next, will be a short overview of Titley's free AnaLook software.
Happy bat detecting!
