I'd rather be sailing
I'm buying a new EPIRB and am debating whether to get the McMurdo SmartFind Plus G5 or the ACR GlobalFix iPro. Both have an internal GPS, are 406 units with 121.5 homing, etc. Both have 5 year batteries. The ACR is "fancier" with a second GPS hookup that slaves to your onboard GPS (we're already wired for this with an older ACR that slaves) for immediate broadcast without the internal GPS having to determine your location. It also has an LCD screen that gives you the EPIRB status both during self-test and real activation. Any thoughts on which unit to get? The price difference is negligible.
