Yellowbrick isn’t an EPIRB or a PLB. It doesn’t just transmit your position in an emergency. It transmits your position on a regular basis, all the time.
Friends and family can see where you are, and where you have been, on your personal web-based map. It is waterproof, rugged, and trusted by virtually all the world’s major offshore yachting events.
Yellowbrick is battery powered, and will run for up to 3 months, transmitting hourly. In standby mode it will last for up to a year between charges. It can send and receive short messages via e-mail and SMS, and has an alert button. Running costs are just £8 (~$13) per month plus transmissions, and you only pay when it is being used – you pay nothing when it’s not.
Why wait for an emergency to let people know where you are?
