The Personal Location Beacon with built-in GPS. The Fastfind Max series of Personal Location Beacons are the very latest products from McMurdo designed to provide individuals with the highest chance of being found quickly in an emergency.
The Fastfind Max-G is a revolutionary hand-held Personal Location Beacon that features a built-in GPS receiver (Global Positioning System) combined with a 406 MHz transmitter and 121.5 MHz homing signal. In the event of an emergency, an alert signal is transmitted to COSPAS-SARSAT satellites and forwarded to a rescue coordination center within typically 3 minutes.
The built-in GPS receiver will provide latitude and longitude coordinates to give a position to within typically 98 feet anywhere in the world. The Fastfind Max-G comes complete with lanyard and designer splashproof carry case to enable users to keep the PLB safely attached at all times.
