The Ortovox 3+- a high quality avalanche transceiver that couples advanced features with a user-friendly interface.  Key safety features include:

If you are buried: The 3+ is a three-antenna device which has an intelligent position recognition system that analyses the position of the antennae and automatically switches to the optimal transmitting antenna. You are always sending out the best signal, meaning that  you get found faster. Our advice - insist on a 3 antenna device if you are buying a transceiver.
If you are searching: In coarse searching, the illuminated real time display lets you focus on the essentials- the distance to and the relative position of the victim. The solid arrow and the central distance value keep you going in the right direction.  Simple and effective.  Once you get close, the patented circular display shows you at a glance whether you are getting closer to the signal or moving away.  You can therefore effectively carry out a fine search, determine the distance to the buried victim and limit the area to be probed.  All of this saves vital time in finding and freeing the victim.
The 3+ also allows you to maintain an overview with multiple burials. The number of victims is shown in the display. As soon as you have found the first you can blend out their signal with the flagging key, so that you can immediately continue the search without signal interference. Put all of these features together and you find faster!  This translates to a better chance of survival for the buried person.
For maximum protection, the 3+ is fitted with a Recco reflector. The backup technology is used by more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world. 
Other features :
  • Very easy operation due to: clear control elements, precise real time display with directional arrows and circular display
  • Rubberized housing for protection and ergonomics
  • Display lighting for night searches
  • Switchover to transmit mode in case of a follow-up avalanche
  • Clear and optimized intuitive search acoustic
  • Precise partner check
  • Updateability. 

An avalanche transceiver is useless without a shovel and a probe.  You can purchase a great value bundle, consisting of an Ortovox 3+ transceiver, the best-selling Ortovox Beast Shovel and a 240cm avalanche probe here.
