FASTFIND PLUS Personal Locator Beacon with or without GPS




The Fastfind and Fastfind Plus series of Personal Location Beacons are the very latest products from McMurdo/Pains-Wessex designed to provide individuals with the highest chance of being found quickly in an emergency at sea

The Fastfind Plus is a revolutionary hand-held 406MHz Personal Location Beacon. Similar in size to a mobile phone, it is powerful enough to transmit a distress message from the remotest seas, almost anywhere in the world to the international search and rescue services in just 3 minutes, whilst giving a positional accuracy to within typically 30 metres. It will also update your position every 20 minutes and give vital information to the rescue services about your personal details and boat ID, thus avoiding lengthy searches, which greatly increases the chance of a successful rescue. Fastfind Plus is currently the only Cospas Sarsat approved PLB in the world that contains an internal GPS receiver, 406 MHz and a 121.5MHz transmitter, it is also the worlds smallest 406MHz PLB.

There is a choice of user replaceable batteries for use in a wide range of temperatures. The batteries last for 5 years and once activated will transmit for 24 hours.


When activated a visual indicator and audible alarm show the operating status confirming 406MHz transmission, 121.5MHz homing transmitter operation and GPS status, providing comforting reassurance to the user.

The Fastfind Plus is stylish and easy to wear and comes complete with a fixing device for attaching to foul weather clothing, or a lifejacket, and a designer carry case to ensure that the PLB is worn at all times. The unit is also small enough to fit into a pocket and can even be used by divers with use of a clever pressure resistant container.

Whether a recreational boater, professional or semi professional crewman, lone yachtsman or fisherman, the Fastfind Plus provides individuals almost instant, personal protection giving the very best chance of being found in an emergency at sea. Also, in countries that permit PLBÕs for landbase and aviation use the Fastfind Plus can also give the same protection to mountain climbers, skiers, forestry workers, desert trekkers and pilots.
