A buoyant version of the ACR ResQLink, we recommend an ACR ResQLink+ Personal Locater Beacon for water based activities, but hope you never get to use it.

Three integrated signal capabilities, the ACR ResQLink+ is equipped with GPS positioning, a powerful 406MHz signal, and 121.5MHz homing capability to quickly transmit your location within 100m to a worldwide search and rescue satellite system, and is made to float so you can retrieve it of dropped in the ocean.

Easily activated by deploying the antenna and pressing a button, the ResQLink+ has two handy self test options to confirm unit functionality before you leave on your adventure. A built in strobe light increases visibility for authorities and large strap loops make for easy to attachmens to a life vest, belt or backpack.

Tried and tested in extreme conditions, the technology used in the ResQLink+ PLB has saved thousands of lives and provides extra peace of mind on top of good preparation when heading off on outdoor adventures.

Excellent product and service

I bought this on backorder as they were about to get the latest model from the USA. Super easy to buy and delivered as promised. Way cheaper than the buying from other providers in Australia and cheaper even than sourcing it from USA myself.

boulkier than non floating

I bought it as a replacement for the non-floating model and was surprised by how much thicker this one is. If you do not really need it to float pick the other one. Also no carry pouch this time. Besides that a brilliant and small unit.

Recommended EPIRB1 answer

Hi - After been ditched by a wave 5kms from shore in pounding swell earlier this year, I'm looking for a personal EPIRB I can use, but that will also be in range when exploring the desert regions on WA which I do a bit of. I've heard some marine EPIRBs dont work inland. Looks like this device does but wondering if this is the unit you would recommend or one of the others you have on your page?

- Perth(1 month ago)

G'day David,

Grabbing yourself an EPIRB is probably a wise investment and the ACR ResQLink PLB is a great option. It will work inland without too many concerns at all, it's based on the land one, it can just float. Just to throw two other options into the mix though, there are two others that are slightly different that may or may not be a better suit to your needs. The Ocean Signal RescueMe PLB1 is submersible to 15m and can be used more than once (hopefully you won't need it once at all), most PLB devices are only good for one use. Another option is the Spot Gen3 Satellite GPS Messenger, these can be used to message loved ones with pre-set messages, so if you find yourself in need of help but not badly enough to activate the SOS function, you can send a location to loved ones to come and collect you themselves. It also has a tracking feature so you can look back on your adventures later.

Floating cover1 answer

Hi, Does this model include a pouch and can I detach the floating cover so that the device is smaller in case I am going hiking

- Sydney(3 months ago)

G'day Pavel,

I've just had a bit of a play with the ACR ResQLink PLB (Floating Model) that we've got on display and unfortunately the floatation part of the PLB is screwed into the back & can't be removed. This particular model also doesn't come with a pouch but on a positive note, it does come with a velcro tether to attach to either your life vest or bag.

NZ Use1 answer

Hello, can I buy this beacon from NZ and use it here effectively? Regards, Tim

- NZ(1 year ago)
G'day Tim - We don't do overseas delivery I'm afraid. If you have friends or family here, though, you could buy it to be delivered to them and then they could send it on to you? Will the ResQLink work in NZ? Absolutely. As a keen tramper of NZ myself, I can vouch for this - and most hire points use the ACRs over there. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul

PLB1 answer

Hiya want to know if you can use the PLB if vehicle breakdown or bogged .What other safety device should I carry in remote areas .Thank you

- BURTON, SA(1 year ago)
G'day Steve - By all means, if you're broken down and there is a good chance nobody will find you, and the situation is pretty dire, then you'd think about setting off your PLB. But if you're a bit bogged in a fairly busy area you'd probably reconsider. It's the sort of device you'd use in potentially life threatening situations - by activating it, search and rescue is going to be sent most likely by chopper. If you're travelling to remote areas, I would absolutely carry one. Might be your only way out of a dire situation. As for other safety tips - have a look at our blog, there is heaps there about outback touring. Hope that helps. Cheers, Paul
