Really?! ANOTHER Ortovox transceiver recall! Thanks for posting this I was considering buying and S1, a friend has that one and I liked it's interface, not now. Going to stick with Pieps and Mammut.

"Because of the large number of devices, the processing time is currently approx. 8-12 weeks. The devices sent in will be processed in the order in which we have received them. Please send in your device in good time so that we can modify it for you before you need to use it again"

They can't even provide a reasonable statement, instead they say something that indicates their target market is people who only occasionally use their gear.

I'm no longer a fan of Ortovox and can't trust their equipment.
