More Information

GlobalFix™ iPRO sports a digital display that allows you to see all of the beacon's operational activities. The screen displays GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power.
 
iPRO makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand with the digital display visually walking you through the self test step by step; no more relying on listening to beeps and 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 the coordinates are transmitted in the first data burst. iPRO's internal GPS is optimized for cold starts and is tested and refined at ACR's GPS Simulation Center so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRBs.

I'm sold on ACR beacons that helped save my life

By Victor on August 15, 2011 I'm sold on ACR beacons that helped save my life in March 2011. For added defense, I researched many units and found this one to be robust. Not bulky, functionality exceptional and package as an all inclusive unit. For this one, I will return after my next journey and share the wonders of this unit.
