How does it Work?

Registration

When you purchase your beacon there are details in the box of the emergency services you need to register with. They will need your details and your next of kin details so they know who to contact when the beacon is activated. This unit is like an insurance policy, good to have and hopefully you never need to use it.

Activation

When you unfortunately need it, simply open the antenna, turn it on and ideally make sure there is nothing covering it and that it faces upwards to the sky. If stranded in a vehicle, place it on the roof. If in thick bush, try and find a clearing or high point you can use. The less obstacles there are between the unit and the sky, the better the signal. If raining don't put it in a puddle though the device can get wet.

Rescue

The emergency services you registered with pick up the distress signal. They then try contacting you or your next of kin to see if everything is OK. If not they send out the right people to find you. The GPS tracking is good to within 40m so they should have no trouble finding you. It is simply a beacon so there is no voice communication through it. It is important to stay with the beacon. If you need to move take it with you.

The MT610GAUS has been designed, engineered and manufactured in Australia, to provide the outdoor adventurer or lone worker with a GPS PLB solution that is compact, easy-to-use and affordable. Featuring an integrated 72 channel GPS receiver, zero warm-up time, high intensity LEDs, IP68 Ingress Protection and an inherently buoyant design, the compact size of the MT610GAUS has not compromised the safety features included. It is designed to meet and exceed the latest international standards and is Cospas-Sarsat Class 2 certified.
