Description

Drastically increase your probability of survival at sea with the multiple built-in redundancies of the GlobalFIX V4 marine distress EPIRB. Upon activation, the GlobalFIX V4s robust internal GPS accurately fixes your exact location. Your coordinates are then broadcast via a powerful 406 MHz distress signal to Search and Rescue forces worldwide. In the absence of GPS data, orbiting Cospas-Sarsat satellites can accurately triangulate your position using the 406 MHz signal alone. A 121.5 MHz homing signal further guides searchers to your exact position.

The GlobalFIX V4 is a full-featured EPIRB loaded with high-efficiency electronics for performance you can count on, including an internal 66 channel GPS for faster acquisition from a cold start. A protective keypad cover helps prevent false activation, and the all-new, user-replaceable battery pack has a 10-year replacement interval reducing the overall ownership cost and making replacement a breeze.

Registering your EPIRB is mandatory 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.

Please note that this EPIRB must be registered in same country as the MMSI registered to your vessel. For US registered vessels, please choose our Programmed for US listing. For registration outside the US, please chose 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.

  • Drastically increase your probability of survival at sea with the multiple built-in redundancies of the GlobalFIX marine distress EPIRB.
  • This EPIRB is pre-programmed for registration with the US country code and must be registered to a vessel with a US MMSI number.
  • If you require registration outside of the US, please purchase our alternative listing for Programmed for Rest of World'. We include at no charge a reprogramming service on this alternative listing for the country of your choice.
  • Registering your EPIRB is mandatory 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 emergency contact details.
  • This EPIRB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search and Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.

Why would you not have one of these if you fish offshore! Is your life or anyone's life not worth this PEACE OF MIND. Really think hard about it. Accidents happen way to easy and to often. This should be manditory on every offshore boat.

The product is as advertised. I hope that I never have to use it because that would mean that I have to be rescued at sea.

Important Satellite Testing Tips
by Valued Customer on February 18, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
Verified Purchase

The unit comes with a free 2-day trial of ACR's Advanced Testing Services. It tests your beacon through the same Search and Rescue satellites to confirm your beacon is working perfectly and actually reaches the satellites in orbit. It took me 6 attempts to get a response from the satellite (my PLB took 3 tries). The test only sends 1 short burst and if the satellite is not in the right position or the ACR testing service is flaky, you may not get a response the first few times. IMPORTANT: I've found that after registering for the ACR Advanced Testing Service, it can take an hour or two before it become active. So it's best to wait an hour or two before testing so you don't waste your battery.The GlobalFix V4 will allow at least 84 extended tests and 120 self tests. I discovered that during the shorter self-test, a 406 MHz self-test message is still transmitted from the beacon (without gps data) and the ACR testing services will still respond to the test. For best results, you should have a clear view of the Northern and Southern sky. This is normal according to the manufacturer:Provided that you follow all the instructions on how to carry out the test correctly, the test should work. However it's important to remember that the self test only transmits ONE single burst of data up to the satellites and it is possible in some circumstances for that burst to get corrupted by atmospheric conditions and other anomalies. In an emergency your beacons transmits a burst up to the satellites EVERY 50 seconds and thus if the first burst does not get through, its highly likely that the second or third burst will. However, don't worry, your beacon will continue transmitting for at least 24 hours, so even if you are in extreme conditions, the message should get through.
