ACR EPIRB - AQUAFix™ 406

GPS Personal Locator Beacon

Accidents happen every day on the water, whether your boat goes down, man overboard, or a storm has left your boat incapacitated. On the water, an everyday accident instantly can become a life threatening situation if you are not prepared. Why wait days being stranded in the hopes that someone will find you? Put the power in the palm of your hand with the AquaFix™ 406 GPS PLB. Now you can turn that life threatening situation into a successful rescue story. It's as easy as pushing a button, and with an internal GPS receiver (P/N 2797.4NH) the AquaFix™ will acquire your GPS position and transmit it along with your personalized identifier code through the COSPASSARSAT satellites instantly alerting SAR forces that you need help, immediately! The AquaFix™ works fast, if GPS data is present in the beacon's first burst, SAR forces can be notified and start planning your rescue in as little as three minutes. Be Responsible, Be Prepared, Be Safe.
