The GPS position will be updated regularly so Search and Rescue can find you faster and pinpoint your location with greater accuracy. This greatly reduces the time it takes them to find you vs non-GPS units. The unit will alternate between sending your GPS coordinates and resting to preserve battery but it will update new coordinates after deployed.
