Avalanche Transceivers Recall

Avalanche Transceivers Recall

We recently came across this article about the Ortovox, if you follow the link at the bottom you can enter your serial number and see if your unit is within the recall.

 

Here is a quick note about the symptoms:

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.
