Overview

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:

  • Confirmation that the beacon is working
  • 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 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.”

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.
