The Nautilus LifeLine is an aid to your safety. It is not a life-saving device.
It is not intended to save your life.
This equipment is intended for
emergency use. Do not activate
unless in an emergency situation.
Performing a test will reduce the
battery life. Only perform a test once
before each dive trip
DSC functionality may be disabled
in certain countries subject to regulations.
Ensure that the O-rings are always
clean and free of contaminants.
Dive cap should remain sealed
unless in distress situation or when
performing self-test.
In the case of accidental activation,
the user should deactivate the LifeLine GPS distress signal and notify
the appropriate search and rescue
authorities (e.g., U.S. Coast Guard or
Rescue Coordination Center serving
the geographic region) at the earliest
possible time.
We recommend using Panasonic
CR123 3V (1550 mAh) batteries.
Lower quality batteries may have a
reduced lifespan.
In order to comply with CE RF
exposure guidelines, ensure that the
LifeLine GPS is at least 16cm from
your body when transmitting.

Each LifeLine GPS comes pre-programmed with an MID number. This number
serves as your identification and will be transmitted along with your distress call.
The number can be found on the back label of your LifeLine GPS.
If your vessel (or the vessel you are traveling with) has a DSC enabled VHF radio, it
is recommended to program the vessel MMSI number into your LifeLine GPS. This
allows your LifeLine GPS to send a DSC position report directly to the vessel VHF
radio by holding down the yellow button for 5 seconds.
Note: Not required for use of the red Help button

• Slow flashing indicates no acquired position
• Fast flashing indicates acquired position
3 Test sequence begins after LifeLine GPS has acquired position.
4 Approximately 20s after acquiring position the ORANGE Indicator will stop flashing (on solid)
and LifeLine GPS will transmit a low power Routine Own Ship Position Report. This message
will only be received by close proximity Marine VHF radios.
5 Low Battery indicated by alternate sequencing of ORANGE – RED indicators. Replace
batteries before next use.
6 Good Battery indicated by LifeLine GPS returning to IDLE.

Rewinding Antenna
Check the O-ring carefully for dust or contaminants before submerging the unit.
Applying a very sparing application of lubricant to the piston o-ring can be beneficial.
The batteries should be replaced per the battery vendor's expiry date as
printed on the batteries and recorded on the back label or after TEST mode
battery change notice (alternating RED and Yellow LEDs). Replacing the
batteries requires a Philips #1 head screw driver and a clean, non lint
surface. We recommend using Panasonic CR123A 3V batteries. Lower
quality batteries may have a reduced lifespan.
Unscrew two screws
on top cap
Insert two batteries
(Need to install with proper
orientation +, - symbols)
Put screws back
To rewind the antenna, after use of the LifeLine GPS, use the tool provided in the box. Pass
the end of the antenna through the slot of the rewinding tool. Insert the tool into the open
space of the top cap. Continuously turn the tool clockwise to fully spool the antenna back
into place. Remove the tool and replace the antenna retainer.
