Ortovox S1 Upgrade
Version 2.1 10/2011 It's a little confusing that the 10/2009 and 10/2011 S1 updates both display the version number as 2.1 when you turn on the device. However, if you choose the "i" icon, this version will display as 1.2.3488.
You now cancel a previously suppressed (i.e., marked) transmitter during multiple burials by pressing and holding the OK button for two seconds. Previous versions would cancel the suppressed transmitters with a quick press of the OK button. This change prevents you from accidentally cancelling the previously suppressed transmitters. You can activate a new "deep burial" function by pressing the OK button when you are between 3 and 7 meters from the transmitter. This causes the S1 to display the "circular illustration" sooner. You can now personalize the start-up screen with your name, address, phone number, etc. That's handy in case you lose your transceiver (the Mammut Pulse also allows the startup screen to be personalized).
Version 2.1 10/2009 It's a little confusing that the 10/2009 and 10/2011 S1 updates both display the version number as 2.1 when you turn on the device. However, if you choose the "i" icon, this version will display as 1.2.3237.
