AquaLink™ PLB - Personal Locator Beacon

NEW FEATURES: Send I'm OK Messages and GPS Location Maps. Increase the functionality of your PLB with optional 406Link.com non-emergency messaging service.
Head offshore with confidence. With three levels of integrated signal technology - GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability - the AquaLink™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites, reducing search time and increasing your chances of survival. It's reliable signaling technology that has saved more than 25,000 lives since 1982.

The AquaLink™ broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are. The onboard GPS can fix your position to within 100 meters and then utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting satellites. As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location.

The AquaLink™ is small enough to be easily carried in a pack or pocket or can be worn on deck, at the helm, in quarters or on a life vest and will float if accidentally dropped overboard. Performing a full functional self test of the PLB's internal circuitry, battery voltage & power, and 406 MHz transmission gives you the peace of mind knowing your PLB will work the moment you need it to the most. ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up to 12 times over the life of the battery life.

Tap in to the same field-tested rescue technology used by the U.S. Military, Coast Guard, NATO Special Forces and Arctic explorers.

I hope I never have to deploy it, but... November 28, 2018
Reviewer: John Hedgepeth from San Luis Obispo, CA United States  
I feel safer with an ACR beacon aboard. I don't have an epirb and my boat is only 22 ft so I bought the Aqualink. It has more battery time andsignal than the Resqlink. But the downside is that it's larger so I'm less likely to have it in my pocket. The Aqualink comes with a plastic carrier to attach to webbing but without a tether it might fall off, although it floats. So I'm attaching a tether. Another downside is that the antenna manually deploys and you need to keep it out of the water and vertical. With the antenna vertical the unit is horizontal, which is an interesting design. All in all I feel more comfortable going offshore in my Merit 22.

ACR Aqualink GPS PLB review August 10, 2010
Reviewer: padrefigure from Dripping Springs, TX United States  
Well, how do you review a device that you hope to never use?  It shipped on time, delivered as promised, was priced fairly without any surprises.  Registering the unit seemed straightforward, but I have not received the acknowlegement.  If everything goes as planned, I will never have to activate this unit.
