NEW Firmware 3.0 Update Available for Barryvox S and Barryvox

The new 3.0 firmware for the Barryvox S and Barryvox transceivers is available now!
The update can be done at the Mammut Service center for your country, or at any participating Mammut retailer--a list is at the bottom of this post.  In the USA and Canada call 800-451-5127 or email info@mammutusa.com .  A $35 fee applies to upgrades at the country service centers and most equipped retailers.


The 3.0 firmware for the new-generation Barryvox and Barryvox S introduces the following functions:

Device-to-device update:
The device-to-device update function allows Barryvox® users with 3.0 BarryHeart firmware already installed to share the new firmware with other Barryvox® users directly from beacon to beacon, similar to the way you would airdrop a photo from cell-phone to cell-phone.


Multiple performance-boosting features: The 3.0 BarryHeart software upgrade includes the following features, which apply to both the Barryvox S and the Barryvox unless specified.


  • Greater precision and speed of signal analysis
  • Improved stability of the marking function during signal overlaps
  • Optimized direction display after reception of the first signal results in fewer U-turn indications
  • Improved structure and stability of the list of buried subjects
  • Improved battery life display
  • Optimized interference resistance results in less interference from electronics (smartphones, headlamps, radios, smart watches, etc.) which will reduce false-positive signals when searching
  • Improved group check now allows checking groups larger than 15
  • “Send confirm” function for situations when space does not permit a full group check
  • Improved alternative search mode (only Barryvox S with Pro Search ON ) provides improved resolution of the analog tone while searching
  • "Pro-check" (only Barryvox S with Pro Search ON ) allows guides and group leaders to confirm transmitter frequency as well as pulse length and cycle duration to predict whether signal overlap is likely within a group

Here is a list of locations offering updates on the Barryvox S and Barryvox transcievers:

Please note that the older Element and Pulse w-link and tester are not able to perform software updates on the new generation Barryvox and BarryvoxS.  We'll update this post on an ongoing basis to reflect a current list of retailers who have update capability for the new-generation Barryvox transceivers.
