PERSONAL LOCATOR SAFETY DEVICE OF CHOICE?

5 years 1 month ago #27686 by tony h
Greetings, my current Personal Locator Beacon has expired & am contemplating a replacement. Are there any opinions on a market leader?

Contemplating:
1. Battery replacement on my GME Accusat MT410G Pocket Pro - now relatively big / bulky?

2. RescueMe PLB1 - www.findmespot.net.au/rescueme-plb/?gcli...SK6NACFQonvQodCnsIFQ

3. SPOT Gen3 GPS Messenger - www.findmespot.net.au/spot-gen3-gps-messenger/

What are people using around the world currently for emergency / rescue locators?

Thanks
Tony H

I am using the KTI SA2G PLB. It is small, floats, and the battery lasts for 10 years. It is also very affordable at $260 - $299. As a bonus, it is also made in Australia.

I use www.hutchwilco.co.nz/products/beacons-an...lb-375-starstarstar/

Bonus they float, and had a goody bag and cash back offer when purchased. Goody bag included a phone case, dry bag, strobe light, and a paracord survival bracelet. Probably a good few dollars in there to say the least.

Also the Spot is not a PLB. Depending on where you intend to use ensure you understand the different frequencies and technologies used between the Spot and a PLB.
