Introducing the all-new Australian Made 406MHz GPS Personal Locator Beacon from GME, the MT610G.

This Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is GME’s most compact and lightweight design ever, complementing GME's market-leading range of Emergency Beacon products.

The MT610G is a super-compact, lightweight PLB, offering an impressive 7-year battery life and a 6-year warranty. Featuring a ‘Non-Hazmat’ battery pack for ease of transport, the MT610G ensures you remain safe and connected, wherever life takes you. The MT610G 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 MT610G has not compromised the safety features included. The MT610G is designed to meet and exceed the latest international standards and is Cospas-Sarsat Class 2 certified.

GME is the only Australian manufacturer of emergency beacons and has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing EPIRBs and PLBs for over 30 years. In that time their beacons have been used to save hundreds of lives around the world.

The MT610G offers enhanced peace of mind for bushwalkers, 4WDers, remote workers, and aviators alike.
