Its true...they have FINALLY come up with a portable, inexpensive but effective way to give divers a lifeline to help if they are stranded, swept away by current or just lost from the boat. IT IS NOW SHIPPING AND IN STOCK!!! DON'T GO DIVING, BOATING, JET SKIING OR ANY WATERSPORT WITHOUT IT!!!

The Nautilus portable handheld GPS is the answer!! Posted Image

Dive safety just changed forever with the introduction of the Nautilus LifeLine – a compact sleek radio GPS for divers that is depth rated to 425 feet. It is similar in size to a blackberry but a wee bit thicker. You can use it as a full featured marine VHF radio to chat with your friends. You can ask for help on CH16 from ANY boat around you within an 8 mile 12.5 km radius whether it is the largest cruise ship in the world, a passing tug, ferry or yacht or the smallest fishing boat. It’s a full featured GPS that even allows you to geocache your dive sites. And most important of all, it is built with DSC compatibility allowing you to broadcast an alarm and your GPS position to every vessel in range that is equipped with a modern VHF marine radio. Lights will flash, horns will go off, everyone else’s radio will autoswitch to C16 and your GPS coordinates and brief message will be displayed on their radios.

This new radio will be available to divers in late March. SingleDivers.com is one of its first distributors...and we will be able to take early orders for the incredibly low price of only $299 + shipping and handling.

We can not discount the price of the unit but if you are premier member we can give the first 10 people who buy them a $25 SD Bonus Bucks Coupon which you can use on other merchandise, travel etc.

We will use this thread to manage sign ups and shipments just as we do other merchandise and trips.


PRICE:

Nautilus Lifeline MSRP = USD $299. Shipping and handling is $15 for the first Lifeline, and $5 for each additional unit in the same shipment. (This includes inbound and outbound shipping costs.)

SPECIALS:

The first 10 people who order the Nautilus Lifeline and pay in full will receive $25 in SD Bonus Bucks which can be used for SD merchandise, trips etc. good for one month after ordering.

SHIPPING:

Shipping cost is $15 for the first unit and $5 per add'l unit if all going to the same address. (This includes inbound and outbound shipping costs.)

Product will start shipping the end of March from the vendor. SD will turn these around within several days of receipt of product.

I want one as well, but no money right now :(.

One question though - it's quite likely to be used right next to the water by someone who is dripping wet. Probably actually floating in the water. Maybe it'll be raining. Once the case is opened how much water/splashing can the device tolerate?

This looks like something I may want :cool1: I'll let the :blond: Santa know later :D

Peter - from the info on the website:

The Lifeline is depth rated to 425 feet 130 meters with the cap closed and waterproof to IP67 standards for surface use with the cap open.

From a search I found the IP rating and if I'm reading it right it's 6 = "dust tight" and 7 = waterproof to 1 meter. So should withstand normal waves and splash without a problem.

Confirming Butch is correct!

Also demand will outstrip supply which is why we are doing EARLY orders!!! I placed an early order so our members could have them. I was in good company...in the time it took me to place my order I saw Mike Ball order them for his liveaboards in Australia, Wayne Hansen placing an order for Aggressor and a host of others.

Fortunately orders will be shipped as they were placed! That puts us in good standing! :teeth:

Does this apply to waters outside the US? I realize that Mike Ball, for example, may be ordering these--but what happens if a non-Ball boat picks up the call?

From the CGI rendering it looks like it could be a visually as well as great product.

YES it applies to the world. Certain radio frequencies are monitored for distress which is what you'll be tapping into.

As for multiple boats responding...I'm sure the boats will communicate to see if others are in the area to pick up the call and then decide who should follow up!

And while no solution is perfect...this comes as close as I've ever seen. In fact since I can...and I travel so much...I am tempted to have 2 so that if the battery ran out on the first one...I had a back up.

I'm just saying...I figured if anyone ever came out with one of these that they would cost $600...not $300 so you could still get 2 IF you really dove a lot in far out places!

Hey Wenchie:

Can I use the $50 I got from the Black Friday Special on the Truk trip for this? If so how?

Yes you can!

Here was the deal...

e. BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL: Book at least a deposit on the trip and get a$25 SD Gift Certificate for use in our online store on any merchandise or non-travel services for booking one trip and get $50 if book BOTH trips. Certificates are good until Jan 31st so hurry and book your trip before Dec3rd Midnight.

So in order for this to work with the details of this deal is as follows:

Price is $299 + $15 shipping or $314. Less $50 Bk Friday Coupon = $264 you would need to pay with via our payment gateway BEFORE Jan 31, 2011. And you'll get an add'l $25 bonus bucks for new merchandise/travel that is good for 30 days by being one of the 1st 10 to buy one from us!

They will ship in April or as soon as we get them inhouse! All ordering, bonus bucks and shipping will be managed via this thread in the first post initially and then ultimately I'll add a 2nd post that will let us track orders after the first 10.

Its a great gift to yourself! In fact it could be the BEST diving gift you ever give yourself! :cool1:
