The Ortovox 3+ avalanche transceiver not only delivers excellent search capabilities but also features an innovative function designed to make it easier for rescuers to find victims wearing the 3+.

  • 3+ has the ability to analyze its vertical orientation when buried and transmit its signal on the transmitting antenna best positioned for searchers to pick up a signal
  • Triple antenna design allows excellent precision and pinpoint search capabilities no matter what position the victim is buried in
  • Upon reaching a victim, the searcher can press the single button to mark the found victim and immediately set out for other snow burials by simply following the visual data
  • Marking a victim forces the transceiver to stop receiving the marked signal and focus on the next strongest signal
  • LCD screen features a circular display with a directional arrow and distance readout to guide you to the victim
  • Pinpoint search features semicircles around the edge of the screen that indicate whether you are getting closer to or farther away from the signal
  • Compatible with all standardized avalanche beacons operating on the 457 kHz frequency
  • Adjustable harness with case keeps the unit secure and accessible
  • Operates on 1 alkaline AA battery
  • Be sure to read the included instruction manual for important information regarding the use of the Ortovox 3+ avalanche transceiver
