Product Description

The next generation in marine safety electronics

The all new GlobalFix™ iPRO EPIRB is the next generation in marine safety electronics. The GlobalFix™ iPRO is a breakthrough product that features a digital display that allows you to see all of the beacon’s operational activities. The screen shows GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power. Self-testing your beacon is simple and easy to understand, with the iPRO digital display visually guiding you through the self test step by step. No more relying on listening to beeps and figuring out LEDs.

The GlobalFix™ iPRO is also the first EPIRB that offers Dual GPS Technology. Interface your iPRO to your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside so your precise coordinates are transmitted in the first data burst. iPRO’s internal GPS is optimized for cold starts so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRBs. The iPRO is smaller than the original GlobalFix and also includes a non hazardous battery.

              Mount it in your boat or put it in your ditch bag and when the time comes you need it grab it and turn it on.

              Easy to periodically test for reliability.

                    Every boat's owner should have this item in their boat. It gives you a huge peace of mind to know that you can be in touch with somebody in case of distress. It feels like somebody is alway watching your back when you most need it. It is unbelievable how much technology you can find inside this compact unit, so far I haven't found anything wrong with the unit.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The unit arrived on time and it was in excellent condition. Thank to the helpful customer services I choose the best safety product in the market today day.
