AQUALink™ View 406 GPS Personal Locator Beacon, Self-Buoyant

GPS-Integrated Personal Locator Beacon with Digital Display

The SARLink/AQUALink™ broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are. The onboard GPS can fix your position to within 100 meters and then utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting SAR satellites. As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your location.

The SARLink/AQUALink View™ takes PLB technology one step further with its breakthrough digital display. In an emergency, the high-visibility screen provides automatic prompts for optimizing the beacon and confirms critical data such as your exact GPS coordinates, data bursts and remaining battery power. Additional functionality allows the user to test and view GPS coordinates multiple times with minimal impact on useful battery life. Calm in the Storm

The SARLink/AQUALink View’s digital display provides a measure of calm in an emergency — displaying critical data so that you know the beacon is working to summon help.
