World's Smallest Satellite GPS Locator

Introducing the Ocean Signal rescueMe PLB1, a marvel in compact design and efficiency. As the world's smallest personal satellite GPS locator PLB, it's designed for seamless integration into your adventurous life.

NZ Coded for Immediate Local Response

When activated, the rescueMe PLB1, NZ coded for specificity, alerts the New Zealand Rescue Coordination Center. Your location and ID are immediately transmitted via satellite, ensuring that local rescue services are swiftly notified and guided to your precise location. Whether at sea or on land, rest assured that a simple button press can summon global emergency assistance.

No Subscription, No Extra Charges

Leveraging the Cospas Sarsat search and rescue satellite network, the rescueMe PLB1 operates without subscription fees. This globally funded service ensures no additional costs for your safety.

Designed for Accessibility and Visibility

Easily operated with one hand, the rescueMe PLB1 features a spring-loaded flap to prevent unintended use. Its bright strobe light enhances visibility for rescuers, while the 66-channel GPS receiver meticulously tracks your location.

Ultra-Portable with Enhanced Buoyancy

The compact design, complete with a unique mounting clip and retractable antenna, fits effortlessly in a life jacket. The included flotation pouch, a critical safety feature, ensures buoyancy in emergencies. This thoughtful pairing, reinforced with a lanyard and self-locking knots, epitomizes our dedication to safety and compliance with buoyancy standards.

Your Reliable Companion for Safety

With a 7-year shelf life and over 24 hours of operational life, the rescueMe PLB1 is not just a device; it's a promise of security, designed to keep you connected wherever your journey leads.

Important Warning: Choose Region-Specific Coding

If you're in New Zealand, be cautious not to purchase an Australian coded beacon. While similar in functionality, an Australian coded beacon may not provide the optimized local response that a NZ coded beacon offers in New Zealand. It's crucial for your safety to choose a beacon coded specifically for your region to ensure the most effective and timely rescue response.

Quick Delivery

Quick delivery of a compact PLB with more than 7 years of battery life which I hope to never need to use.

Ocean Signal RescueME PLB1

An amazing Company to deal with. Placed order for the PLB in the morning and it arrived at our place in the North Island the next morning. Fantastic service. This is the second PLB 1 we have purchased from Advento. This purchase was for a friend as he wanted a PLB that was compact and easy to attach to pack or belt.
