NO FINDR IN YOUR PLAYGROUND? NO WORRIES!
With network coverage, your loved ones will have your live location and distress alerts. They’ll have all the information they need to help rescue and recover you, even without FINDR.
Temporarily without network, your loved ones will be able to track you and your last known location.
In the event of a problem, and thanks to FINDR, a unique technology developed by APIK to compensate for uncovered areas, mountain rescuers can find a KIP beacon located up to 12km away. This power enables it to scan large areas in helicopter rescue operations in just a few minutes. Your KIP beacon guides the rescue team precisely to you in just a few minutes.
In all scenarios and in France, any person equipped with a KIP beacon can be found following a call to 112.
