The Fast Find is a GPS-based waterproof 406 MHz Personal Location Beacon (PLB).

It is not a substitute for an EPIRB, which must be carried onboard by vessels travelling more than 2nm offshore, but it can assist distressed individuals who are in need of assistance.

When activated, the device will communicate directly with the 406 MHz Search and Rescue satellite system. Its GPS-based system, says the manufacturer, can locate a signal to within 70m, and its minimum operating time is said to be 24 hours.

The unit comes with a five-year replaceable battery and simple, three-stage activation. It also has an LED flash light.

RRP is $629. Visit www.fastfindplb.com for stockists.
