ACR AquaLink View 406 PLB by ACR
If you travel in remote areas away from civilization or out of cell range. You NEED to get one of these. No Joke.Consider you're out hiking in the middle of nowhere and get break a leg or get trapped in blizzard for 3days with no cell service...PLBs are not just for water activities and work with SAR on land as well. I pack our ACR PLB when we travel anywhere incl. overseas or just flying/driving inside the US. Instruct your kids on how to use it. Without a doubt, its going to be very cheap insurance in a serious emergency and will save lives.Important Note - you can update your Beacon registration online for your current trip details, vehicles used, location & times so if you use it SAR will have a good idea of what you are doing if an emergency arises.
