    great rescue device to make it work on asn position report on test position (practical cause it's calling only the boat that you've given the MMSI) it's better to choose international on the setting rather than both AIS+DSC as usual with DGX excellent service

  3. Great rescue device with minor design flows

    By Marek D.

    Easy to operate and activate. Advertised 5 year battery life is a great benefit.
    Easy to program with separate, free software for mobile phones (OS and Android).
    Two minor issues though-Antenna Retainer needs to be removed to activate unit and since it is not attached to it , there is a potential to loose it when activating Nautilus, especially in distress. Antenna rewind tool is also not attached and can easily be displaced.
    Other than -it is a great unit!

Nautilus Lifeline Radios: Rescue GPS vs Safety VHF models

The original Nautilus Lifeline Safety VHF Radio device was a battery-operated waterproof marine VHF radio that could be carried by divers and supported two-way voice communication. The Safety VHF Radio required a radio operators certificate for non-emergency use and also needed to have the battery recharged via a USB cable every few months. The Lifeline Safety VHF Radio has been discontinued and is no longer available from the manufacturer.

The current Nautilius Lifeline Rescue GPS is a compact battery-operated waterproof marine emergency distress radio beacon that can be carried by divers and is depth rated to { 425 feet | 130 meters } with cap closed. It also supports the Automatic Identification System (AIS) signalling functionally which includes your GPS coordinates and a Maritime Identification Digits (MID) user number that comes pre-programmed at the factory. The Rescue GPS device does not require licenses or registrations. The low-maintenance Rescue GPS is very small and the standard two CR123 batteries need only be replaced every five years.

Don't confuse either of the Nautilus Lifeline products with an EPIRB. The much larger EPIRB beacons are satellite transmitters with global reach and monitoring. The Lifeline devices are line-of-sight VHF radios that rely upon direct communication with marine VHF radios on vessels and shore base-stations up to { 34 mi | 55 km } distant with the effective range very dependent on the height of the receiving antenna.
