Drastically increase your chances of survival at sea with the multiple built-in redundancies of theGlobalFix™ V4Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB). Upon activation, theGlobalFix™V4’s robust internal GPS accurately fixes your exact location, and your coordinates are broadcast viaa powerful 406 MHz distress signal. In the absence of GPS data, orbiting Cospas-Sarsat satellites canaccurately triangulate your position using the 406 MHz signal alone. A 121.5 MHz homing signalfurther guides searchers to your exact position.

The GlobalFix™ V4 is a full-featured EPIRB loaded with high-efficiency electronics for performanceyou can count on, including an internal 66 channel GPS for faster acquisition from a cold start. Aprotective keypad cover helps prevent false alarms, and the all-new, user-replaceable battery packhas a 7-year replacement interval—reducing the overall ownership cost and making replacement abreeze.The GlobalFix™ V4 has two functional self-tests to monitor the beacon’s transmission, powerand battery performance, as well as GPS acquisition. Pair these tests with ACR’s optionaltesting portal and receive satellite confirmation messages directlyto your cell phone or email.
