  • Offers peace of mind to any person undertaking outdoor activities
  • Unique patented technology- no warm up period
  • Featherweight, compact and robust construction
MT410G (with GPS - 45m position accuracy) with a massive 7 year battery replacement life. An 'industry first' is a 7 year warranty, a high intensity LED strobe and a 'Non Hazmat' battery pack for simple and cost effective transportation.

The MT410G sends information to the COSPOS SARSAT satellites, which receive 406 MHz digital beacon signals. The 406 MHz receptor has fast accurate detection, and personal identification of each beacon. The GPS component results in a small search area, allowing a targeted response from authorities. This is of real assistance in a life threatening situation.

Today with cutting edge microprocessor technology, GME's engineers are able to provide the outdoor adventurer with a 406 MHz PLB solution that is affordable. The MT410 series provides enhanced peace of mind for boaters, bush walkers, 4 x 4 enthusiasts and aviators, should they 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 and around the world.

Register your MT410G with local authorities so that, in the event of an emergency, they'll know who you are.

These PLBs are coded for registration in Australia. They can be used anywhere in the world, but if you are living in another country it is recommended to purchase a unit locally that can be registered with your local authority.

Difference in search area of GPS vs NON-GPS Emergency Beacons


PLB and EPIRB
PLBs are personal locating beacons – they are pocket sized.
EPIRBs are emergency position indicating beacons – they must float to conform to regulations.

State and Territory Marine authorities regulations are now in force. All boats proceeding more than 2nms outside partially smooth waters, are required to carry an EPIRB that meets the Australian/New Zealand Standard 4280.1 (deals specifically with EPIRBs). EPIRBs are required to operate for a minimum of 48 hours, and float upright with antenna clear of the water, when deployed. EPIRBs are designed to operate most effectively, when activated and deployed in the water. Please note that a PLB (see separately) does not conform, and will not be accepted by regulators, as satisfying the Standard 4280.1. PLBs can of course, be carried on vessels as additional safety devices for personal use. This may be particularly helpful in man-overboard situations.

PLBs sold in Australia are required to meet AS/NZS 4280.2 and must operate for a minimum of 24 hours. They can be used on land, in the air, and on water. Although they are required to float, PLBs don’t have to confirm to EPIRB regulations. In a marine environment, a survivor would need to ensure the beacon antenna is supported clear of the water, so that it can operate effectively.

PLBs will not be accepted by the regulators as EPIRBs for the purpose of the emergency beacon regulations. The intent is that boats must be fitted with EPIRBs that meet Part 1 of the Standard 4280. Owners and crews are encouraged however, to carry PLBs in addition to the boat's EPIRB, where conditions and activities may lead to man overboard situations.

    Compact and lightweight.

    I haven't had to use this device yet, and hope never to be in the situation where I am forced to use it. However it is sufficiently compact & lightweight to be able to keep it in my back pack at all times while travelling, just in case.


    Pros: Compact, lightweight

    Cons:

    Great device and excellent service

    I feel very happy with my purchase and feel it gives security in remote areas in which I travel. The first one I got failed to test properly but JA without hesitation resolved the situation by swapping the beacon. Registering the beacon was a painless process. Would recommend the beacon for anyone doing extensive land travel in vehicles or hiking to ensure emergency help is obtainable.


    Pros: Small package and lightweight

    Cons:

    Pros: Cost, reliability, toughness & weather resistance, compact size & light weight

    Cons: Nil
