Current comments on PLB v. EPIRB? for kayak and, additionally, land use ? REI on ACR sez "INLAND USE"
Looking at ACR units, I read the latest Microfix boasts small size with an external bouyancy bag while the Terrafix/GPS is in a larger box claiming bouyancy. description for useage sounds like water use requires removing the Micro from its bag.
Are the Terrafix and Microfix the same electronics minus internal flotation?
What response times for the ACR's? The descriptions dither between 10 minutes to 2 hours for location.
