Product Description

At 5.4 ounces and just 4 1/2" long, the ResQLink+™ is the smallest buoyant Personal Locator Beacon available today.

Includes GPS and self-test features that can be combined with ACR’s optional 406Link.com site functions.

      Sure hope I do not have to use the PLB. But; if I do I am counting on the the ResQ Link + working like the reviews and advertising says it will. The West Marine is very close to my house so, I have had excellent help and cooperation from the staff and their knowledge of products you offer.

          Comments about Acr Electronics ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

          To get the rebate you must register quickly. I'm hoping I'll get it. It is important for rescues that you do register so the rebate requirement of noaa registration is good.

                  Very small and portable device, makes this a big plus when you have so much gear to take on a fishing excursion. The testing plan that can be purchased separately is a bit pricey, but factoring in the peace of mind that the unit works makes it not seem too bad.
