The 3+ is the only device on the market with which you can increase your own safety! 

It comes with the technical requirements for updates – The following has changed since the introduction:


  • Rectifying the possible disruption of the transmission function caused by software version 2.1.

Updates from software version 2.0:

  • Improved intuitive search sound and clear acoustic feedback when flagging
  • Improved coarse search: Earlier direction indication
  • Earlier fine search: Sound at 3.0m, tendency display at 2.5m
  • Self-Test / Partner-Check: Warning is displayed as „EE“
  • Indication of transmitting antenna in first 20 seconds (Smart Antenna)



Note: In some very rare situations temporary disruption of the transmission function may occur on our 3+ avalanche transceivers running software version 2.1. These devices may no longer be used without the required software update (version 2.2).
All information about the precautionary recall can be found here: www.ortovox.com/recall-3plus



  • Simultaneous and faster initial display of direction, distance and sound
  • Greater backward compatibility with analog devices
  • Acoustic warning 10 seconds before the automatic switchover to transmitting
  • Acoustic warning if the device is switched on but has remained stationary for 30 minutes (switch-off reminder)
