Ortovox recalling 3+ model transceivers due to fault

The big guns of the Transceiver world Ortovox are currently recalling a batch of their 3+ model avalanche transceivers.

The decision to recall them was made after they discovered a serious fault with the model during their search training.

All of the models that were bought after the 17th October 2012 - excluding North America - are being recalled due to the fault, which caused them to switch automatically to transmission mode after 2 minutes in search mode. And let’s face it, this is not what you want.

Once returned they will be inspected and receive a vital software update that will resolve the issue.

If you have bought one of these 3+ models then you will want to write down your serial number and pop along to the Ortovox website to check and see if your model is affected by the recall.

Or, if you want to, you can always call their hotline on +49 89 666 74 212, but you will be charged for the call. The final option, is to email rueckruf@ortovox.com.
