ResQLink 406 GPS $325

By: Lisa Hanks

If only Gilligan had taken a ResQLink. This powerful, waterproof personal locator beacon sends out a unique distress code that tells rescuers where to find you. Activate the 4.6-ounce PLB by deploying the antennas and pushing the button. The 66-channel GPS determines your position within 100 yards, a 406 MHz signal contacts orbiting satellites, and a 121.5 MHz homing signal and super-bright LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location. For added safety, ResQLink includes 30-hour lithium batteries and push-button self-tests for internal electronics and GPS.
