Making Rugged Counts … Braemar Mountain Rescue and the FZ-A3 in action

When making Rugged count, the FZ-A3 ToughBook from Panasonic walks the safe path for reliability, performance and accuracy.

Just as our weather begins to improve, I thought I’d share this photo showing the brave people at Braemar Mountain Rescue in action. You’ll notice the slightly chilly environment. John from Braemar Mountain Rescue said “the photograph shows our Argo on a 16-hour rescue mission to reach a very distressed hillwalker. The crew were amazed at how well the ToughBook worked., Pinpoint (GPS) accuracy in horrendous conditions. They reckoned that without the ToughBook they would have got seriously lost !”
