Product description
Whether you're taking your first avalanche course or traveling into the backcountry after hours of practice, rely on the Ortovox 3 Plus Beacon. The 3 Plus answers your first three questions: which direction, how many people, and how far to them? This user-friendly, all-digital triple-antenna search tool allows for quick recoveries by switching between transmitting antennas to maximize signal strength even when you tumble in a slide and change directions.

In search mode, a simple circular real-time display tells you what direction to search and how far to the victim while a clear, circular pinpoint search shows you how close you are before you start moving away from the signal. Easy Mark technology shows the number of victims and lets you pin the signals once found (with a large button below the front display) so you can quickly move onto the next signal. After 120 seconds of no movement, the beacon switches from search to transmit in case you get buried in a follow-up slide. Should you be buried, the 3 Plus features Smart Antenna Technology which analyzes the position of the antennas and automatically switches to the best transmitting antenna, which boots range 43% more than other devices on the market (with the exception of Ortovix' S1+), no matter what search device your companion is using.
Ortovox gave the 3 Plus rubberized housing to protect it against moisture and impact while a small bag with elastic strap attaches the 3 Plus securely to your body. A backlight display allows for nighttime rescues while its updatable microprocessor keeps the 3 Plus at the forefront of avalanche beacon technology. The 3 Plus also has clear and optimized search acoustics for reliability and a Recco reflector that helps professional rescuers find victims buried in the snow.

Potentiell lebensgefährlich

Eigentlich ein gelungenes LVS-Gerät, das sich sehr einfach bedienen lässt und bei dem kein unnötiger Schnickschnack vom Wesentlichen ablenkt.

Allerdings hat sich nun nach lediglich ca. 10 Tagen Benutzung ein Fehler eingestellt, der potentiell lebensgefährlich ist: bei milden Temperaturen funktioniert das Gerät einwandfrei. Sobald die Temperatur jedoch fällt, schaltet sich das Ortovox 3+ aus (Ich hatte zunächst gedacht, dass es an der Batterie liegt. Jedoch trat der Fehler auch mit einer brandneuen Batterie auf). Man braucht nicht viel Phantasie, um sich vorzustellen, was dies im Falle einer Lawinenverschüttung bedeutet.

Ich kann nur raten, vom Kauf eines Geräts mit einer solch eklatanten Fehlfunktion Abstand zu nehmen.
