This EPIRB is programmed with UIN for registration in Canada.

Roam freely and safely with the GlobalFixTM iPRO Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).
When it comes to marine safety electronics, this EPIRB is in a class of its own. The GlobalFix iPRO has a digital display that lets you view all of the beacon's functionalities, including GPS latitude/longitude, transmission bursts, and battery power.
Know that if you run into a boat emergency, the GlobalFix iPRO EPIRB will help search and rescue teams pinpoint your location and help get you home safe and sound.
The ACR GlobalFixTM iPRO is also the first EPIRB that offers Dual GPS Technology.
You can interface your iPRO with your onboard GPS* to ensure that your LAT/LON is stored inside so the coordinates are transmitted in the very first data burst.
The iPRO's internal GPS is optimized for cold starts and has been tested and refined at ACR's GPS Simulation Center so that it will pinpoint your exact location faster than standard GPS enabled EPIRB's.

The ACR GlobalFixTM iPRO offers the very latest in marine electronic life-saving technology:

  • Highly visible LED strobe - Energy efficient
  • High-efficiency electronics - Performance you can count on
  • Non-hazardous batteries - No shipping hassles
  • Professional grade design - Engineered, tested and built for years of abusive marine use
  • Ergonomic, compact design; Smallest, feature-rich EPIRB available
* The Dual GPS Technolgy feature requires that your boats GPS receiver must export position information in the following format: NMEA 0183, Version 1.5 or higher, Baud rate: 4800. Data requirements: Talker device identifier: GP (GPS Receiver) and Sentence format: GGA (GPS Fix Data)
NOTE: Category II beacons are designed to be manually deployed from the bracket and then activated manually or placed in the water to activate automatically. Two conditions must be met for a Category II beacon to automatically activate: It must be removed out of its bracket. And, It must be wet (i.e. placed in the water). Either condition, by itself, will not automatically activate the beacon.

NOTE: All of the PLB and EPIRB products sold by The Binnacle are Canadian coded and require registration with the government of Canada's online Canadian Beacon Registry System. See Requirements Tab for more information on how to register.

It is mandatory for all Canadian 406 MHz ELTs, PLB's and EPIRBs to be registered with the Canadian Beacon Registry. 

Ensuring that your 406 MHz PLB, ELT or EPIRB is registered, as well as updating the information regularly, will facilitate the task for search and rescue personnel in the event of a distress situation.

If you have a registered emergency beacon, it is important that the information be accurate.

Please update the information in the registry:
  • if you move
  • if you want to update the emergency contact information
  • if your phone number changes, or
  • if any of the important information in the registry changes such as the color of vessel or aircraft.
Online access to the Canadian Beacon Registry is available to all 406 MHz emergency beacon owners to register new emergency beacons or to update their current information.

You can add or update your emergency beacon information online, by faxing or emailing a completed registration form, or by speaking with a representative:
