ACR AQUALINK VIEW (USA) PLB
MFR Model# 2884
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.
Featuring the same advanced technology and robust features as the AquaLink™ 406, the AquaLink View™ adds a reassuring element with its next-generation digital display. Upon activation, the high-visibility screen displays a continuous stream of crucial data, including:
In self-test mode, the screen reports status of the 406 MHz signal, GPS acquisition and battery power, and provides notification of required actions, such as "Send for Service.”

- Your exact GPS coordinates
- Remaining battery power
- Visual prompts for correct deployment
- New feature: send I'm OK Messages and GPS Location Maps; increase the functionality of your PLB with optional 406Link.com non-emergency messaging service
In the frantic moments of an emergency, the AquaLink View™ ultimately provides a calm reminder of what to do — and that help is being summoned.
