I've been shopping around a bit for a P-EPIRB. I read Danatherock's post about the ACR Terra Fix and as I've been researching it I'm quite impressed.
However, ACR markets an Aqua-Fix as well as Terra-Fix. I want a PLB that can be used on backcountry stuff as well as coastal marine adventures. I recently emailed ACR inquiring about the two products and their potential differences. I received this reply:
There are no difference between the Aqua-Fix and the Terra-Fix.
Itís just the way we market the product. Our Outdoor dealers can only purchase theTerra-Fix from us and our Marine dealers can only purchase the Aqua-Fix from us.
There is no reason what so ever to purchase one over the other.
