  • 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.

Value for money

Great device, I was tired of paying expensive annual fees to run a SPOT so converted to the MT410G PLB. meets all my requirements - small, compact, light-weight, simple operation, simple testing functionality, floats, good documentation.

Pros: compact, easy to use

Great for hiking, everything you want in a PLB

On the MT410G I am super impressed. Its light, fits easily in my thigh pockets for hiking. Battery and aquisition self tests both pass and the aquisition time is super fast leaving me feeling confident in this unit. Downsides; - The stocking time means that my unit is already down nearly a full year of battery life. This is a pretty bitter feeling. It would be really nice to throw in a "half price" or similar for the first battery replacement. - The "security seal" sticker on the back is actually an activation sticker. It's there to be ripped in the event of an activation but we tore it off before later seeing in the manual its purpose. Its our fault but the wording should be improved.

Pros: Light weight, Simple self tests, Fast aquisition
Cons: Sticker for "activations" is called a "security label" and in our case we peeled it off before realising. It should say "Activation Seal".

Small price to pay for your life!!

The GME MT310G is an essential part of my safety gear, having just turned 65 and ready to head off into the wild blue, beach fishing around Australia. Buying the beacon from Johnny Appleseed was a natural thing for me to do as I had bought a GPS from them in the past. Cost was no more expensive than the lowest prices I had researched, along with the knowledge, that they are a dealer with an excellent reputation. They already had my details from my last purchase and it took less than 4 mins over the phone. It arrived next day by Express Post and I am very happy with it.

Pros: What I like about the beacon, is that it has the potential to save my life.
Cons: No down side I at all.

Essential device

A must have safety device for any trekker, traveller or adventurer. A compact size with belt loop and easy to follow instructions make this an ideal PLB. It was easy to set up on line and I consider this a must have item. Well priced and superb delivery from JAS - I received this item within 3 days of ordering and this to a country location.

Pros: Compact, easy to operate and set up.
Cons: Nothing
