About Nautilus Lifeline GPS Safety Device for Divers

Nautilus Lifeline GPS Safety Device for Divers
The Nautilus Lifeline GPS Safety Device for Divers puts rescue and communication in your hands. Its compact design, easy-to-use functionality, and powerful signal strength make calling for help a lot easier and a lot simpler than using a satellite-based system that involves uplinks and downlinks, shore operations offices, marine rescue coordination centers, and full emergency responses. Whether it's a cool, calm radio call or sending a digital DSC distress message with your GPS position to the nearest boats, this device does it all. The Lifeline GPS Safety Device features three buttons: Chat, Hail + Distress, and Lifeline. You can use the Chat (green) button for calling your buddy with the channel of your choice, the hail + distress (orange) button for calling the nearest boats around you under a preset universal hail and distress channel, or the Lifeline (red) button for sending an alert message and your GPS position to boats up to 4,000 sq. miles away. Make sure you have the Lifeline GPS Safety Device fully charged with the LifeLine Desktop Software installed. Once you've completed the registration of your LifeLine, you are ready to take the device with you on your marine adventures. The Lifeline GPS Safety Device is made of durable polycarbonate housing that is waterproof to 425 ft. (130 meters) and it includes a built-in waterproof VHF Whip antenna, USB port, and a powerful Jupiter GPS 3 receiver module. Call for help anytime, anywhere without any fuss.

            Don't waste your money ! (Bought a white unit and an orange unit). We even make sure silicon the o-ring well for a tight seal, battery fully charged, channel set to match the boat, and took both for a drift dive in Costa Rica. After the first 90 ft scuba dive and this thing never worked on the surface !!! One is flooded and the other never worked well to radio back to the boat. Luckily we have the good old scuba "safety sausage" and the boat spotted us and picked us up.

                Simplex channels only available between 2+ nautilus radios and boat: 6,...8.9.10.11,12,13,14,15,16,17…..67,68,69…71,72,73,74,75,76,77…..87,88. Other and duplex channels need repeaters. On a recent Indonesian boat dive trip, I agreed with each captain if we needed to communicate, we would chat on a simplex agreed to channel or, 16 if in an emergency. Understanding this limitation will make usage more efficient. Neither instructions, nor manual explain this. Nautilus Lifeline technical support specialist Ryan clarified this for me. Excellent radio and added peace of mind for open water diving.

                  Bought as a gift for my husband. We've been talking about getting them for a couple of years. Decided it was time. Hope to never have to use, but nice to know that if lost at sea, we have a back up plan.

                    Comments about Nautilus Lifeline GPS Safety Device for Divers:

                    I haven't had the chance to actually use it while diving, but I was initially impressed. The construction and durability appear to be sound. The buttons for are adequate for thinner gloves, but a little tricky for cold water 7mm gloves. The cap over the distress button is a great feature so you don't accidentally call the USCG. The pouch is all right, but not necessary. If you can't get it free as an added bonus, don't worry about spending the money to buy it. The charge time is fairly quick. Just make sure you check the charge prior to each dive. I have noticed a drop in battery level if not charged frequently. Overall, not a bad investment to get you out of trouble it needed. One thing I ask the manufacturer to consider as a modification is to add a strobe beacon light to illuminate when the distress call button depressed.

                      Comments about Nautilus Lifeline GPS Safety Device for Divers:

                      It took me three months of reading reviews about this product, I was hesitating about the construction and of the range of the signal. Meanwhile in a heavy rain, the boat lost me for about an hour. I trusted the Capitan would find me but I was concern about the crew worries and to let them know that I was OK and out of the water.
                      I decided to buy it with reserves concerning size, durability and range.
                      Is very well made, it might have a range of over five miles, a clear reception, is easy to use when you emerge and fits perfect in my BC pocket.
                      With time this will become a normal part of the gear as the octopus now.

                      Questions about this item:

                      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                      HANS N  I know the value of good insurance. And considering the consequences of NOT having this unit while on a scuba dive if I were to surface with no boat in sight, it's VERY INEXPENSIVE insurance. It happened to me once, surfacing too far from the boat and drifting down current with no way to contact the boat except for an air horn. It will never happen again.
                      Shopper  how long do you need to charge the battery to keep it fully charged?
                      JAMES J  The battery charges very slowly. Can't tell you exact time, but allow a day (over night at least) to fully charge the unit. HOWEVER, once charged, it holds its charge a long time. You just "top it up". The folks at Nautilus are very helpful. You can contact them directly.
                      Shopper  Does the marine radio ONLY work on channel 16 or can you switch to other channels?
                      ROBERT S  From my understanding it can transmit on CH16 in emergency and also set to other channels to communicate with a vessel for other situations. Those stations can be preset prior to the activity and activated with a single green button
