Introducing the all-new Australian Made 406MHz GPS Personal Locator Beacon from GME, the MT610G.
This Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is GME’s most compact and lightweight design ever, complementing our market-leading range of Emergency Beacon products.

Featuring an integrated 72 channel GPS receiver, zero warm-up time, high-intensity LEDs, IP68 Ingress Protection, and an inherently buoyant design, the compact size of the MT610G has not compromised the safety features included.

GME is the only Australian manufacturer of emergency beacons and has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing EPIRBs and PLBs for over 30 years. In that time our beacons have been used to save hundreds of lives around the world.
The MT610G offers enhanced peace of mind for bushwalkers, 4WDers, remote workers, and aviators alike.
Compact, Lightweight Design
The MT610G PLB has been designed with a strong focus on being as compact and light weight as possible, while not compromising on ease-of-use in an emergency.
Built-in GPS Receiver
The MT610G PLB features a built-in 72 channel GPS Receiver, ensuring fast transmission of accurate location information to rescue authorities. A distress signal transmitted by the MT610G will generally be received by rescue authorities in less than 15 minutes, with location accuracy of <150m.
The MT610G PLB is the only Australian Made PLB on the market, as GME is the only manufacturer of emergency beacons in Australia. GME has been manufacturing emergency beacons in Australia for over 20 years.
Simple Emergency Activation
The MT610G PLB has been designed and engineered to ensure simple and efficient activation in an emergency. The MT610G can even be activated with one hand.
IP68 Ingress Protection
The MT610G PLB features an IP68 Ingress Protection rating. This means that the PLB is completely dustproof and waterproof and can be submerged in water to a depth of 10m for up to 1 hour, ensuring the beacon is always ready to go when required.
7 Year Battery Life
The MT610G PLB offers a 7 year battery life from the date of manufacture, marked on the bottom of the beacon. At any time within the battery life period, the beacon will transmit for a minimum of 24hours once activated.
Cospas-Sarsat Certified (Class 2)
The MT610G PLB is Cospas-Sarsat Certified (Class 2) and meets all applicable Australian and New Zealand Standards.
The MT610G PLB is inherently buoyant which means the beacon will float in water, without the aid of an external flotation device, unlike some other PLBs on the market.
