Personal locator beacons give you direct access to search and rescue authorities. By relying 100% on satellite technology, you will never be out of contact in case of emergency.
Personal locator beacons work by triangulating your position using satellite technology. By calculating the response time from different satellites, it is able to accurately provide your coordinates to within metres of your location. This means should anything happen, you can spend more time in contact with help and less time trying to describe where you might be.
A personal locator beacon means you can share your location with your friends and family, letting them check your adventure is going to plan.
Should anything not go to plan, when activated, a personal locator beacon sends out a signal on a dedicated frequency which is monitored by emergency responders.
By removing the dependency on cell phone signal, you can be anywhere in the great outdoors and still be in instant contact with the help and support when you need it.
For more hardened adventurers, we absolutely recommend making sure you have a personal locator beacon in the group.
While these may not always carry as many fun features such as pedometers and hiking statistics, a personal locator beacon provides the all important lifeline in case of any emergency. A good quality personal locator beacon can very much be the difference between life and death in some situations.
