GME’s latest personal locator beacon is the MT610G, a compact and lightweight unit (160gm), offering a 7-year battery life and 6-year warranty.
The MT610G, has been designed, engineered, and manufactured in Australia and features a ‘non hazmat’ battery pack for ease of transport.
Other features include an integrated 72 channel GPS receiver, zero warm up time, high intensity LEDs, IP68 Ingress Protection and an inherently buoyant design.
The MT610G exceeds the latest international standards and is Cospas-Sarsat Class 2 certified, ensuring enhanced peace of mind for bushwalkers and other outdoors enthusiasts. It replaces the MT410G, which is now discontinued.
GME’s Group Marketing Manager, Tony Crooke says it’s important to hear the stories of bushwalkers who have had to use their PLB. “Speaking to survivors and hearing their stories can be very confronting, and really reinforces how quickly things can go wrong when we are out exploring this fantastic country of ours.”
