Recall Campaign For Ortovox 3+ Avalanche Transceiver
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.
Ortovox is responding immediately and, as a precaution, is recalling all devices shipped to vendors after Oct. 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 (see the link below): The 10-digit
number will appear on the display 2 digits at a time when the 3+ is switched

It should be noted that this recall does not affect any Ortovox transceivers sold in North America.
