GlobalFIX V4 EPIRB with a 10 year user-replaceable battery

GlobalFIX V4, from ACR Artex, is the newest FCC approved Emergency Position Indication Radio Beacon (EPIRB) to hit the market.  What makes this product unique in the marine electronic lifesaving market is the 10 year user-replaceable battery.  The GlobalFIX™ V4 has two functional self-tests to monitor the beacon’s transmission, power and battery performance and GPS acquisition. Pair these tests with ACR’s 406Link.com optional testing portal and receive satellite confirmation messages directly to your cell phone or email.

An optional purchase is the ACR 2279 RapidDitch Express Bag, a buoyant abandon ship survival gear bag designed for a worse case scenario boat exit. Large enough to store your Epirb and other safety equipment.
