Ortovox 3+ recall

Postby dehrlich101 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 5:41 pm

Check your Ortovox transceiver serial numbers for their recall.


During search training, avalanche transceivers of the ORTOVOX 3+ model switched to transmission mode unintentionally after 120 seconds in search mode. Internal tests showed that a certain production batch of the 3+ can exhibit this behavior.We are responding immediately and, as a precaution, are recalling all devices shipped to vendors after October 17, 2012, for inspection and a software update. These devices can no longer be used without an update.

Please determine if your device is affected by checking the serial number of your device and entering it in the box on the right: The 10-digit number will appear on the display 2 digits at a time when the 3+ is switched on.

For further support, please get in touch with our hotline:
