The new ACR GlobalFix V6 EPIRB is a versatile Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon suitable for use on both recreational and commercial vessels. High tech features like Return Link Service (RLS) reassure users by confirming that the beacon has successfully sent the distress message and that this message has been received. ACR's new Near Field Communication (NFC) allows the beacon to connect to a smartphone for quick diagnostics that demonstrate the battery is charged and the EPIRB is functioning properly. The GlobalFix V6 is an ideal safety solution for all types of vessels and activities including coastal cruising, offshore passage making, or while working or fishing in any ocean.
