Correct. This model is also more compact than the floaty. I never understood the utility of the floating model. When I paddle I always tether it to my pfd. If one deploys the antenna and places the floating model in the water the antenna will act as a lever and pull the until over so it is not pointed toward the sky.

Both models (all PLBs for that matter) require that the front of the unit have an unimpeded view of the sky for communicating with the satellite system.
