ORTOVOX S3+ TRANSCEIVER RECALL (RUNNING SOFTWARE VERSION 2.1)

Feedback from Ortovox's SAFETY ACADEMY PARTNER has revealed that, in some very rare situations, temporary disruption of the transmission function may occur on our 3+ avalanche transceivers running software version 2.1. The reason for the disruption is a software error. The new software version 2.2 will rectify the error.

There have been no known accidents caused by the software error. As a precautionary measure to ensure our customers are not at risk, we are recalling all 3+ transceivers running software version 2.1. Devices affected by the recall may no longer be used without the required software update.

Which transceivers are affected?

This precautionary recall applies exclusively to ORTOVOX 3+ avalanche transceivers running software version 2.1. ¬ no matter what colour.

3+ devices running the following software: 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.2 and all other ORTOVOX avalanche transceivers (S1+, S1, ZOOM) are not affected.
