Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product If you need a mains supply unit to meet current regs this fits the bill Inexpensove and good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting The basic design of this smoke alarm means hopefully it should last the 10 years it's designed for. It has a green light for mains power and a red light that flashes every 45s to indicate the battery is ok, you can also connect alarms together with an additional wire connected between them. It's easy to fit and is quite slim to the ceiling, the only negative is it's more beige in colour than white but it's cheaper than other smoke alarms that do the same job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Home Smoke Detector Replacing them regularly saves lives...an easy swap out and no excuses when they are this inexpensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Unit The unit is simple and basic to install. A little annoying that the battery back up is only able to be changed by removing and unplugging the unit then unscrewing the securing screw as the old units were slide in and out, but they work well. Standby green light is a little bright and the 45 second red light standby is annoying, but you don't notice it after a bit. This flashing might have upset someone as I bought 2 units, one all new and sealed, the second, ripped box, battery tab ripped off, battery cover Phillips screw replaced with an old slot head screw (I know this as new unit screw was taped down and shiny and old unit was screwed in) and electrical cables stripped and crimped, not to mention the base plate had signs of fitting and the protective smoke cover (like a tiny shower cap) was refitted backwards, so be cautious of returns, but I needed to get them fitted and they work fine.

Answer: 
Looking at the 2004 year Garvan SS-1238S alarm it will not fit the same base plate. The Garmen base plate can be removed so that the Base plate for the 670MBX can be installed.
