GlobalFix V6 Category 2 EPIRB with Return Link Service & Mobile App
The new ACR GlobalFix V6 EPIRB is a versatile Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon suitable for use on both recreational and commercial vessels.
High-tech features like Return Link Service (RLS) reassure users by confirming that the beacon has successfully sent the distress message and that this message has been received. ACR’s new Near Field Communication (NFC) allows the beacon to connect to a smartphone for quick diagnostics that demonstrate the battery is charged and the EPIRB is functioning correctly. The GlobalFix V6 is an ideal safety solution for all types of vessels and activities, including coastal cruising, offshore passage-making, or working or fishing in any ocean.
Reliable Worldwide Digital Mayday Tells Rescuers Where to Search
The ACR GlobalFix V6 EPIRB accurately derives its position globally through the GNSS (GPS, Galileo, and Glonass) positioning networks. Triggering the device produces a digital distress transmission using a 406 MHz distress transmission that relays the GPS EPIRB (GPIRB) position, accurate to within 100 meters, to the worldwide Cospas Sarsat search and rescue satellite network.
Position information and vessel identification are then relayed by the satellites to ground stations, which ultimately helps decide the scope of the rescue operation to be launched. Once the EPIRB is activated, a 121.5 MHz signal is transmitted in addition to the higher frequency satellite signal. This 121.5 MHz homing signal aids rescuers in finding the device when they arrive at the rescue scene, which is particularly important if the beacon has drifted from its original location. The GlobalFix V6 EPIRB also emits both a visual and infrared strobe to help rescuers pinpoint the beacon and speed rescue operations.
Near Field Communication (NFC) Ensures the EPIRB is Functioning Properly
Using ACR’s free smartphone app and NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, users can easily access EPIRB diagnostics. Placing a smartphone adjacent to the GlobalFix V6 EPIRB opens the ACR Product App, which shows EPIRB data. The app shows the current battery life of the beacon, the number of GNSS and self-tests completed, and the amount of time the EPIRB has been activated.
Users can see detailed information on each self-test and GNSS test the device performs. GNSS tests include a map view demonstrating where previous tests were performed, the date and time of the tests, how long it took the EPIRB to get a fix on the GNSS coordinates, the number of satellites used to obtain that fix, and the fix’s accuracy. NFC allows users to routinely check the status of all EPIRB functions to ensure they are working properly and ready to go in case of an emergency.
Return Link Service (RLS)
Return Link Service indicates to the user that an EPIRB rescue transmission has been received. The RLS signal is sent back through the Galileo satellite network, confirming that the digital Mayday, including precise beacon location and identifiers, has been delivered. An easy-to-see flashing blue light indicates the EPIRB’s successful reception of the Return Link message through the Galileo satellite network. Those in distress who have triggered the beacon and received the RLS confirmation know that rescuers will be made aware of the EPIRB activation and location and that rescue operations will be launched.
ACR is a globally recognized leader in marine electronic rescue devices and other life-saving products. They build quality rescue equipment solutions like the new ACR GlobalFix V6 EPIRB that is suitable for all types and sizes of vessels in both the recreational andcommercial sectors.
Long life Lithium batteries, global 406 MHz satellite transmission, a 121.5 MHz homing signal, visual and infrared strobes, and a Return Link Service that tells users their rescue signal has been received are all packed into a durable waterproof beacon. Near-field communication and the free ACR App allow users to check the EPIRB status for added reliability.

I took the boat out. Everything worked perfectly EXCEPT I somehow lost one of the capscrews to hold an oar in the swivel assembly. So far I have found the part number and a Japanese company that can sell me the part for some number of yen. Then I found somebody in Canada and there would be shipping charges. There is allegedly USA distributers but so far I am unable to find one. So my 5 star rating is subject to drop if I find it's going to be very expensive and difficult to replace a part I believe should cost no more than a few dollars. I would have looked harder for it if I had known. 😃
ideal for trips and daily use
Smooth ordering process!
Charges quickly and runs van appliances.
Portability and foldable design are nce
Compact and powerful
bought Ecoflow pro originally for RV trips... now its a lifesaver for remote work and more.... thought about getting an extra battery for outages....
real deal and super reliable
Great backup power for essential home appliances during blackouts!
Hooked up my mercrusier engine to the Simrad and it's like having a boat dashboard on steroids. The ecogps function's a lifesaver, helps me get the best trim and rpm for max mileage. Love that I can see my fuel range on the chart and track fuel usage trip by trip. Customizable screens and side bars are a plus. If you can't find the info on this, you probably don't need it. And shoutout to their support team - the guy I talked to knew his stuff and helped me out! When I ordered, it came 2 days later! No waiting around. Great buy!
I've been wanting something like this for a year but not sure how to make it work for my van. I'm excited to set this up for my van
Happy and satisfied with my order
EcoFlow BLADE has transformed my lawn maintenance! 5 stars! ⭐
Responsive and accommodating
