Product Description

GlobalFix™ iPRO features a digital display that lets you see the beacon’s operational activities. The screen shows GPS LAT/LON, operating instructions, usage tips, transmission bursts as well as battery power. Dual GPS Technology easily interfaces with your onboard GPS to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside, allowing your precise coordinates to transmit in the first data burst. iPRO’s internal GPS is optimized for cold starts so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRBs. It’s smaller than the original GlobalFix and also includes a non-hazardous battery. Optional advanced satellite testing enables you to receive your beacon’s test burst from the satellites via email/text.
