More Australian Rescues Start With GME Than With Any Other Brand GME?s Accusat MT410G Pocket Pro+ 406MHz Emergency Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) with integrated GPS - Manual Activation has been leading the world's PLB market due to it's features and innovation. The MT410G Accusat Emergency Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) offers a massive 7-year battery replacement life, and a 7-year warranty, the unit also 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 100 metres typically - all contributing to the unique AccuSat advantage.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 servicewas 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, personal identification of each beacon, reduced search area resulting in a faster more targeted response in a life threatening situation. However the prohibitive cost of 406 MHz beacons has always been an issue. Today with cutting edge microprocessor technology, 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, 4 x 4 enthusiasts and aviators should they ever require emergency assistance. GME has been designing and manufacturing emergency beacons in Australia for over 30 years. In that time literally hundreds of lives have been saved in Australia andaround the world.
