Anabat Walkabout Bat Detector

£1,406.79 Ex. VAT
In stock

If you want to undertake transect and emergence surveys, you may want to consider the aptly named Anabat Walkabout. Based on an Android operating system with built-in WiFi and GPS, the unit outputs .WAV (Full Spectrum) and Anabat Sequence Files (Zero-Crossing), which are saved onto an SD card. 

The Anabat Walkabout has been designed with convenience in mind, making data collection easier to do. Whilst you are in the field, full-colour 5" LDC touchscreen allows you to view the Full Spectrum and/or Zero-Crossing calls in real-time, so that you can monitor and review calls. Recordings can be stored and played back with ease 

A built-in file management system allows you to store recordings and play them back easily, whilst metadata linking allows you to add valuable data and information (such as species labels, voice recordings, maps and more). Additionally, a built-in GPS and mapping system allows you to tag your calls and log your path as you go, and also save maps for offline viewing.

Should you wish, you can view Full spectrum and Zero Crossing outputs, an Oscilloscope and a map all at the same time on the same screen.
