Can I use this to send out a signal that people can track with google maps? or is it just a beacon for emergencies?

This is just for emergencies. ACR has new beacon coming out soon that will the ability to push a button that will people here I am and I am OK. There will be a subscription for the function. However there is no need for a subscription in order to use the emergency functions on the beacon. If you want something for true emergencies this is the product to get. If you want a messaging device then get a SPOT. The ACR products are designed as a life saving technology and are the most reliable.

What's the difference between the I/O PLB and the I/O NH PLB?

The only difference between the two is the NH model uses Non Hazardous batteries so you don't need to dispose of them according to your local hazardous waste ordinances (they're a bit more friendly to the planet). There is no difference in operational specifications or useful life between the two types of batteries and likely once all the non-NH models are sold, the NH will become the only option.
