MT403FG GME: Automatically activated EPIRB with GPS


MT403FG Epirb with self-activating GPS with shock-resistant and UV-stabilised housing, Transmission at 406 Mhz and 121 Mhz,.


The GME MT403FG is an automatic EPIRB (category 1) with GPS. The automatic release guarantees the arrival of the rescue even in the event of unexpected overturning of the boat, while the GPS ensures that the rescue can locate us with more precision.

For activation, however, we do not necessarily have to wait for the hydrostatic ganglion to activate the EPIRB automatically, but we can unhook the EPIRB from its support and activate it by simply placing it in the water, thanks to the water switches provided.

In 2004, GME was the first to introduce digital control into EPIRB technology, resulting in greater reliability, autonomy and performance. Today, the most attentive competitors have also achieved this technology, but GME now has an 8-year track record through which the technology has been carefully refined.


Australia is the largest user base for this technology, as EPIRB is mandatory for even the smallest vessels. GME, besides being the undisputed leader in EPIRB sales, has been able to experiment its technology in its territory for a long time, where the greatest rigour and standard for the safety of man's life at sea is imposed.
