Description

AquaLink View PLB from ACR relays your position to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites in the event of an emergency. AquaLink's digital display allows you to test the device as well as check on your co-ordinates and battery power.

AquaLink features three levels of signal technology - GPS positioning, 406MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability. These technologies work together to relay co-ordinates accurate to within 100 metres to worldwide emergency services.

An LED strobe light helps you attract attention once rescue services arrive.

Unlike many other PLBs, the AquaLink features a digital display - this gives you peace of mind as it allows you to check on battery life and view your GPS latitude and longitude. It also makes testing the device much easier as on screen instructions guide you through the process - testing PLBs without a screen means relying on a series of beeps.

Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.

Should you wish to register your device in the US, please choose our Programmed for US Registration listing. For registration outside the US please choose our Programmed for Rest of World listing and advise us of your required country of registration after purchase so we can program the device for you. Please note that some countries, such as Spain and Germany, do not allow PLB registration unless registered to a vessel. Users in these countries without a vessel can register their devices in the US if required.

  • When it comes to your survival on the open seas and massive lakes, count on the ACR Electronics AquaLink View 406 Personal Locator Beacon.
  • Completely waterproof and self-buoyant, this life saver broadcasts both your personal information as it's listed in your world-wide network registration in addition to the exact GPS coordinates of your location (accurate within 100 meters).

2884 Aqualink looked to have the most features and best construction available

After considerable research into locator beacons the ARC 2884 Aqualink looked to have the most features and best construction available.My son had it on one of his back country excursions recently in the N.W. near Canada. My son come upon a group of hikers and found a lady had hurt her leg miles from cell phone reception. He used this device to send out help signal and within about one hour rescue help arrived.The lady and her group were thanking my son non stop for his help.They said that they were going to purchase one before they ever went on another hike.Everyone who boats or hikes should have this device.ACR offered a rebate on this device and I just received a check for $100.00 from them.WIN WIN situation

This review is not written to help sell this product but to give some insight to anyone who might need to invest in a PLB to save your life or the lives of others. Not a tiny investment. I deliberated for some time over buying this unit or a smaller unit and finally decided if I ever have to use it the size and extra money will be the least of my worries. I did test it, and it quickly passed. The GPS can be tested up to 60 times before the software won't let you test it again. A single test would probably suffice. I want GPS coordinates visible since if I have an emergency it will be at sea and the possibility I may be able to reach someone by VHS radio and pass on my coordinates would be invaluable. A photo shows my Standard Horizon radio next to it. The ACR is heavier and bulkier, but it is not the type of thing I would carry with me when I know the Coast Guard is near. This is for extreme outings. Currently there is a rebate in effect through ACR, and this unit comes with a year of 406link.com under the rebate. Also, if you go to the ACR website you can read a number of first hand accounts of being saved through activating a unit. This is serious stuff.I'm a paddler heading out to international waters and understanding how these connect to SAR (search and rescue) satellites and connect rescuers to my individually registered PLB already gives peace of mind. You must register the unit with NOAA and 406link gives you an opportunity to send out preprogrammed emails/texts (I won't know exactly until I get my rebate). Yes, I wish it was smaller, but the ocean is very big, and I want to be found. I tucked both my radio and the PLB into the front pocket of my racing PFD, and while the weight is a little noticeable there isn't much I can do about that. As long as a shark hasn't bitten off both my arms, I will be able to reach it!

Perfect Personal Locator Beacon, with GPS location transmission options
by Valued Customer on May 24, 2016
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

Works as described. Just what I needed. Combined with the 406link.com service this Personal Locator Beacon will send e-mail alerts and SMS alerts with and without GPS coordinates. The difference between this and similar ARC models isn't easy to find. But after lots of digging, this model has 3 features that make it more expensive. 1) LCD screen, that has simple readouts and directions. 2) A bigger battery which can transmit the emergency signal longer. 3) The bigger battery also allows you to send more test signals, which in turn are relayed to your emergency contacts through the 406link.com service through email and/or text.Of note the 406link.com service is reasonably priced.

A few more features that other beacons

A beacon is my insurance policy in case things go wrong. The ACR is larger than other beacons, but I like some of the features including the digital display for status, the strobe and the ease and visual confirmation of testing and the external antenna..

Personal Location Beacon ACR Aqualink

I bought Aqualink on the rebate incentive and I hope to see my check of $100,00 soon as I could use it for my boat gas billlol. On serious side I after registering the PLB I took it to my work early in the morning and performed a signal test. And I was amazed as it confirmed link and GPS position within 4 seconds. Hope to never have to use it but sure glad I have it. Now for a good high collar Mustang PFD maybe next year.

Save Yourself - Get This If You Go Off The Beaten Path

Well giving it 5 stars might be reaching it, seeing it hasn't saved my life yet, but the piece of mind of having something of this quality when I'm flying out in remote areas is value in itself.

Buy it now! Probably #1 hiking investment I have ever made

So glad I got this instead of the Spot or anything else. This is the REAL deal. I waited for years to buy a beacon. Daughter (on way to college) finally insisted since I would be doing serious hikes alone. Piece of mind is so far beyond what I expected. I can be in areas where I have not seen a human or car for hours. I send alerts to my daughter that I am ok. One when I leave the Jeep, one at the top and one when I am safely back at the Jeep. She LOVES this feature. I called these guys before purchasing and you could tell these guys are the top dogs in this space. Thing is indestructible. Don't do what I did and wait get it now! Will be the best investment a serious hiker/climber will ever make can't believe I debated it for so long.

Took it with me on a trip between Long Beach and Catalina Island. The test mode worked just fine after submitting the personal information on line. Fortunately didn't have to use it.
