    This is a beacon with a simplified GPS and can also be used as a one-way cell phone to get help a bit like an EPIRB but it doesn’t float nor is it waterproof. It also has a timer to know how long you have been lost. The % key is to calculate your chances of getting rescued. The up/down arrow key is to get an airlift. The red circle flashes too.
