The Mammut Element can be updated using a special wireless link. The ability to update your beacon is important, because it allows you to get enhancements and new features without purchasing a new avalanche transceiver. (Learn how to update other transceivers.)
The Element displays the version number in the upper-left corner of the display during startup.
It costs $30us to update the Element. The update can be done at about a dozen retail locations in the US and Canada as well as at the Mammut service centers in Vermont and British Columbia. Visit the Mammut dealer locator to find a dealer in your area. (Here is a list of dealers that were recently offering the update in the United States.)
(Still the current update as of Fall 2016)
The Element was released in the Fall of 2011 using software version 1.0.
