GME’s Accusat MT410G Pocket Pro+ 406MHz Emergency Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) with integrated GPS offers a 7 year battery replacement life and a 7 year warranty.
The unit features a high-intensity flashing LED, a ‘Non Hazmat’ battery pack for simple and cost-effective transportation and a 50 search channel GPS receiver with top-mounted Quad helix antenna to improve location accuracy to better than 100m typically. Please note that a 406 MHz Emergency Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is not a substitute for a 406 MHz EPIRB. The obsolete 121.5/243 MHz analogue COSPAS SARSAT service was terminated in February 2009, and now only the 406 MHz digital beacon signals are being processed by the satellites. Consumers have for some time recognised the major benefits of a 406 MHz over a 121.5 MHz device in faster, more accurate detection; however, the prohibitive cost of 406 MHz beacons has always been an issue. Today GME’s engineers have been able to provide the outdoor adventurer with a 406 MHz Emergency Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) solution that is not only affordable, but provides enhanced peace of mind for boaters, bush walkers, 4x4 enthusiasts and aviators should they ever require emergency assistance.
