Product Description

GlobalFix™ iPRO features a digital display that lets you see the beacon’s operational activities. The screen shows GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power. Dual GPS Technology easily interfaces with your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside, allowing your precise coordinates to transmit 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. It’s smaller than the original GlobalFix and also includes a non-hazardous battery. Optional 406Link.com advanced satellite testing enables you to receive your beacon’s test burst from the satellites via email/text.

      The added features and compact design (compared to an older model ACR) is very impressive. Instructions are complete and easy to execute. Operational guides are even on the unit.

      Comments about Acr Electronics GlobalFix iPRO EPIRB, Category II Manual Release:

      Use this on my 26 center console. Wanted to have the extra element of Saftey offshore. Chose ACR because there common but more so over others at the time of purchase was a rebate for a free ditch bag etc... What a hassle to get the rebate. It's been well past the estimated time for delivery and nothing. Contacted ACR via email and there response was to resend it in. Simply they make it hard to get the rebate and will make you work for it and you still may not get it. I'm sure there goal to make it difficult so folks will just give up. I'd did and also will give up on ACR and be sure to preach to all my fellow mates to avoid this organization...

        Comments about Acr Electronics GlobalFix iPRO EPIRB, Category II Manual Release:

        This product (or similar model) is a Must Have item!!! I was onboard a boat that capsized a few months ago offshore in a storm. This product along with the Coast Guard and Sea Tow helped save our lives. Long story short, we were dead in the water, batteries down, only enough power to run the radio, and radio communication was very poor. Waiting on Sea Tow (who responded as quickly as possible), a storm overtook us and capsized the boat. It happened so fast that we were unable to get out a "Mayday" with coordinates, and I don't believe this call was heard due to poor communications. The EPIRB was the only option left for letting anyone know of our distress and position in the water. We were rescued by the Coast Guard and Sea Tow boat within 2 1/2 hours. If it were not for this EPIRB, our chances of being here today would be Very slim. If you don't have one, you should get one! It's a small price to pay for your life and others. And how comforting it is in a situation like this to know that help is on the way!
