    I really like seeing that little screen for a relatively small extra cost. I learned the value of such feedback when I tested the much larger and more expensive AquaLink View back in 2010, and incidentally, that unit was still testing fine last summer (and probably still is):

    We purchased a ResQLink View PLB last month along with a Cat 1 Global Fix V4 in preparation for our Atlantic Crossing with the ARC organised by the World Cruising Club. On Monday, during an offshore passage we were contacted by the Spanish Coast guard regarding our new PLB which set itself off. On inspection, the antenna was stowed and the safety cap closed. The PLB was in the pocket of a life jacket that was not being used, in a dry place. After contacting ACR, it looks like we may not get a replacement until after our departure date. This is highly disappointing. If I was them, I’d want to get the product back to figure out whether there is a manufacturing problem as malfunctioning beacons endangers lives

      I am sorry to hear about your experience, let me see if I can’t make this right for you. If you would contact me at [email protected] I would be happy to work with you to get your replacement back to you as fast as we possible can.
