Head offshore with confidence. With three levels of integrated signal technology - GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability - the AquaLink™ View quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites, reducing search time and increasing your chances of survival. It's reliable signaling technology that has saved more than 28,000 lives since 1982.
Unique. The AquaLink™ View 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 satellites. As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your exact location.
Calm in the Storm. The AquaLink™ View 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. The digital display also makes self-testing your beacon simple and easy to understand by visually walking you through the self-test step by step. No more relying on listening to beeps and looking for LEDs.
Lightweight. The AquaLink™ View is small enough to be easily carried in a pack or pocket or can be worn on deck, at the helm, in quarters or on a life vest and will float if accidentally dropped overboard.
ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up to 60 times over the life of the battery. Tap into the same field-tested rescue technology used by the U.S. Military, U.S. Coast Guard, NATO Special Forces and Arctic explorers.

Unlike cell phones and two-way radios, 406Link utilizes two geosynchronous GEOSAR satellites to provide dependable coverage throughout the world. Currently, the 406Link.com coverage area includes:
Western Africa (partial)
Did you know...
406 MHz technology has been around since 1982 and is credited with saving over
25,000 lives worldwide.
In 2006, of the 105 incidents in the US, 272 people are alive
thanks to the SARSAT system.
The AquaLink™ ™ View is a satellite signaling device of last resort, for
use when all other means of self rescue have been exhausted, where the situation
is grave, and imminent loss of life, limb, eyesight, or valuable property will
occur without assistance.
