Pros: Small, pocket-sized device. Very easy to work. Cons: It would be nice to be able to test more times  GPS is limited to 12 tests. Of course, I understand it's this way to make sure you have a battery when you really need it. I would have traded off another few grams of weight for a few more tests.

Can this PLB be used anywhere in the world?
Bruno D on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the short answer is YES, however, It must be registered in the country of the owners residence. There is a list of Countries that place no restriction on the use of this. You can find it online. Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Spain require a license to use this. Luxembourg, Malta, and Slovenia do not allow PLB's.
Is this version the "ACR ResQ Link Plus Buoyant" for $269.00?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is buoyant.
Is it true that this unit must be mailed back for a new battery install as there is no way to charge or replace the battery by the owner? If this is true, what is the logic behind this?
GoGo Gadget Gal on Aug 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it must be returned every 5 years for battery replacement, no later than 6 years from date of manufacture. As far a the logic, I can't help you there. Battery replacement includes replacing all o-rings, testing water seal and the electrical properties. It does state there are not user serviceable items inside the beacon.
Does it have the TAC Certification, is it approved cospas-sarsat beacon? If I buy it, how is it set to my country code? Or that issue is made before you send it to me? Thanks.
Federico D on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has the Cospas-International Registration Data Base (IBRD). If you purchase it in the US, it is programed to the US. If you purchase it in UK then you need to register it in the UK. All 406 MHz beacons are registered with that country's nation authority. After you purchase this, you have to register it. There is a Unique Identifier Number programed into the unit. You can do this online at their web site acrelectronics. There all the paperwork you need when you purchase this, but you can always go to their website. All documentation is there.
Is the satellite network used by this PLB Globalstar, Iridium or other?
Robert L on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's actually the COSPAS-SARSAT constellation, so it has global coverage and no subscription fees. It's intended for life-saving use, not messaging.
How much is the replacement battery and 5 year service charge?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The average cost for battery replacement is around $150. That may vary depending upon the service center that you select.
I am not sure what you mean by"5 year service charge". There is no service charge or subscription required.
ACR ARTEX offers an advanced testing service Basic is $39.95 and Plus is $59.95 per year. This allows advanced testing and confirmation of results. This is not a requirement, it is an option.
