Ortovox 3+ Avalanche Transceiver -
Ortovox's 3+ avalanche transceiver is a digital three-antenna transceiver that greatly enhances you and your friends' safety in the backcountry, and helps you find and recover multiple avalanche victims quickly -- no matter their position.

Support and Cushioning:

  • Fine Search - the patented circular display shows you whether you are getting closer to the victim or moving away from him/her in increments of 10 cm. The optimized, distinct search acoustics supports you in the search by pitch of the tone and volume.


  • Made in Germany
  • Be sure to read the included instruction manual for important information regarding the use of the Ortovox 3+ avalanche transceiver

  • Upon reaching a victim, the searcher can press the single button to mark the found victim and immediately set out for other burials by simply following the visual data
  • Upgradable so you can always stay up to date with the newest technologies
  • 3+ RECCO 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
  • Intuitive display and dynamic audio during refined location
  • Adjustable harness with case keeps the unit secure and accessible
  • Marking a victim forces the transceiver to stop receiving the marked signal and focus on the next strongest signal; mark up to three victims
  • Compatible with all standardized avalanche beacons operating on the 457 kHz frequency
  • Search Strip width - 40 m
  • Easy Mark - The number of victims is shown in the display. With the \"pin\" key you can quickly and easily mark located victims and continue the search.
  • Allows you to maintain an overview even with multiple burials
  • Ortovox 3+ RECCO avalanche transceiver operates on one alkaline AA battery
  • Most transceivers can only transmit on one antenna; by being able to transmit on two antennas, the 3+ has a consistent 40m range no matter what position it is buried in

  • Pinpoint search features semicircles around the edge of the screen that indicate whether you are getting closer to or farther away from the signal
  • Partner check including frequency check
  • If the transceiver registers no movement for more than 2 min. while searching, it automatically switches back to transmit mode in case a second avalanche has struck

The Ortovox 3 + Avalanche Transceiver is an essential for backcountry skiing. The patented circular display, combined with the intuitive search acoustics, leaves no doubt when operating in fine search mode. Once located, victims can be removed from the display using the flagging function.


The 3+ is a three-antenna device with a special extra function to first enhance your own safety. The intelligent position recognition system analyzes the position of the antennas and automatically switches to the optimal transmitting antenna. There is no longer any such thing as the 'worst position'. The circular display lets you focus on the essentials. The distance to and the relative position of a victim. Always align the device to the arrow. The solid arrow and the central distance value keep you going in the right direction. The 3+ allows you to maintain an overview even with multiple burials. The number of victims is shown in the display. As soon as you have found the first one you can blend out their signal with the pin key. The victim is displayed as pinned and you can immediately continue with your search.
