Operates globally, with no subscription fees or costs.

Wherever you are, at sea, on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that global emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.
The rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

Link Via Satellite to Emergency Services

With fast accurate positioning, and homing Beacon to aid final location by search and Rescue craft.

When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services nearest to your are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location to assist prompt rescue.
The satellite system is designed to locate your beacon using the transmission alone. The accuracy of this fix is approximately a 5 nautical mile radius, but is typically much better. The rescueME PLB1 has a built in GPS receiver which is used to encode the position in the transmission. When the GPS has a reliable fix, usually within a few minutes, the accuracy is typically within 100 metres of your actual position can be achieved.

This PLB is small and light. Great to throw into a backpack.

Assuming that it works in an emergency, taking this PLB on any adventure is a no brainer, because it is so small and light. Even when packing light on remote trail runs, I will throw it into the first aid kit.

Pros: Small, Light.
Cons: Nothing.

This device is a must for bush walker’s and hunters especially for those that are in rugged terrain you never no when you could a unknown accident and can’t get your self out of trouble this device is simple to use and so compact

This device should be a must in everyone’s backpack or kit if there a bush walker or hunter this little device could save your life and even get you out of trouble . Little price to pay for your life . Lost or even hurt. save hours spent searching for you in the bush if hurt or lost. As for me safety should always come first

Great unit, great price, poor soft sleeve design

Nice little unit, well thought out and robustly built. Perfect for mounting on sea kayaking PFD (provided you can stitch it onto webbing). The soft neoprene sleeve designed to hold unit is poorly designed because you shove the PLB in but there is no retaining strap and so the unit can fall out of the sleeve, as well it retains water at the bottom of the holder as there are no drain holes. An irritation, but an important in a sea kayaking application.

Pros: Small and lightweight for mounting on sea kayaking life jacket
Cons: Soft case does not retain unit when you bend over (vigorously)

Hi Richard, thanks for your feedback. We have passed it onto the manufacturer. In terms of the sleeve, it was designed as a firm fit so it stays put. It is also tied onto the pouch so you cannot completely lose it. It is also shipped with an extra length of thin cord to tether it if needed. Sometimes people remove it from the pouch to fit it to the oral inflation tube in a lifejacket too.
