GME GPS Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) Review [2024]

gme plb

GME has been providing the market with cutting-edge RF communication equipment for more than 60 years and is the sole Australian manufacturer of UHF CB radios and emergency beacon systems. In fact, over 50% of Australian rescues involve a GME brand PLB.

The MT610G, which was developed, engineered, and produced in Australia, comes with a “non hazmat” battery pack for portability.

A 72 channel integrated GPS receiver, zero warm-up time, high intensity LEDs, IP68 Ingress Protection, and a naturally buoyant design are other benefits.

The MT610G surpasses the most recent international standards and is Cospas-Sarsat Class 2 certified, providing campers, bushwalkers and other outdoor enthusiasts with increased peace of mind. It takes the place of the MT410G, which is no longer produced (but can stll be found on Amazon)
