|killclimbz||3+ beacons sold new by retailers should all have the updated software. A question worth asking. If it doesn't, that is a retailer that probably would not get much of my business after that.|

I got rid of my BCA Tracker 2 for a Pieps last season. Don't know much about their new 3 model though but they're owned by K2 now so hopefully that means something positive.
There was a recall on the Ortovox 3+ so make sure to get one that has the new flashed software, or send it in and get that performed.

|linvillegorge||Yep, I just swapped out a BCA Tracker for the Ortovox 3+. Too many quality control issues with BCA beacons. Mine inexplicably powered off on me twice. Go with the Orthodox.|

I would just go with the 3+. Proven, reliable, solid range, and maybe the best pin pointing function out there.
BCA has also been having problems as of late, not that Ortovox is immune from it.

BCA Tracker 3 vs Ortovox 3+
Going to get my first avalanche beacon this season. Which would be a better beacon, the Tracker 3 or the Ortovox 3+? Any other recommendation would be appreciated. I have used the Tracker 2 in the past. Just lookin for a great first beacon!
