3+ UPDATE

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:

Current Software Version 2.2

  • 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)

Software Version 2.1

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

SOFTWARE VERSION 1.1

  • 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)

S1+ and S1 Update

Software Version S1+ (Plus)

Where do I find my Software Version?

Once the welcome screen with the software version (e.g. 2.0) has been displayed, the S1+ starts a self-test.

The transmitter, receiver, and smart antenna sensors are checked.

The remaining battery capacity is also displayes as a percentage (e.g. "99%").

Where can I update my transceiver?

We provide selected key dealers with the necessary hardware to update the equipment.

You can locate your nearest Safety Dealer HERE.
