Richard M.wrote a review of ACR MicrOFix 406 GPS PLB on January 4, 2009
I am 66 years old and go hiking in places that I probably should not. I have a satellite phone that only works when a satellite is overhead, not to often. I am going hiking and fishing in the Wind River Mountains this coming August and this unit makes me feel more secure. I live in Arizona and hike and camp in places where there is no water. If you miss judge your water needs or get hurt and can,t get out before you run out of water this unit could save your life. I think the ACR is worth the price. THE SPOT UNIT IS A PIECE OF JUNK! OR AT BEST A TOY.
