Ortovox 3+ Recall—Motion Sensor

Ortovox 3+ transceiver

A small number of Ortovox 3+ avalanche transceivers are being recalled due to a defective motion sensor. The motion sensor causes the 3+ to unintentionally revert to transmit mode after two minutes of searching. This recall only affects transceivers that were shipped to vendors between October 17, 2012 and December 5, 2012. None of these transceivers were distributed in North America. (Ortovox used to have a link to a page where you could enter your serial number, but it has been removed. You're on your own.)
