Lose the Bulk Without Sacrificing
PLB technology has come a long way in the past few years. It used to be that getting a PLB would mean carrying a bulky, heavy piece of equipment that cost you hundreds of dollars. The Kannad XS-4 is changing all of that. The XS-4 is the smallest and lightest PLB on the market today yet it still provides many of the same powerful features of much larger PLBs; all for less money than what it's larger counterparts go for. Pack the XS-4 in a flightbag as a backup to your ELT system or leave it in your aircraft in case you wind up in an unexpected position. You can even carry the XS-4 in your pocket! The Kannad XS-4 is also perfect for backpacking, camping, backcountry skiing, or any other outdoor adventure. The small, palm-sized unit can go with you almost anywhere.

Small Package - Powerful Features
Despite it's small size, the Kannad XS-4 is easy to operate, and broadcasts a distress signal on the international COSPAS SARSAT 406MHz frequency. It also utilizes a 121.5MHz homing signal frequency and a built-in 50 channel GPS to accurately direct rescue operations to your location. The Kannad XS-4 also includes a flashing SOS LED light to aid in night time rescue operations. With it's replaceable battery, the XS-4 will operate a minimum of 24 hours continuously (even in temperatures down to -20°C), giving rescuers the best chance to locate you in time. The Kannad XS-4 contains a replaceable battery with a 5 year shelf life so there's no need for frequent battery changes or recharging. All of these features from a unit the size of an average cell phone.

Free Subscription
