Default which EPIRB

I am about to purchase a cat II epirb. I was looking at the ARC 2777.5. i see they have a model with rapidfix w/gps interface and one without. Can some one explain what the rapidfix w/gps interface and the benefits. Also, opinions on this unit.

1st - do a search for"epirb" - after reading for days, you'll find that most of us here like the ACR 406 globalfix with internal gps/ Cat II - it's pretty much the gold standard for epirbs....

Glen said it best; the ACR GlobalFix 406 is the "gold standard" for EPIRB's

I have the ACR Aquafix 406. Great unit. Get one like this with a built-in GPS, otherwise you have to connect to your boat gps if you want the quickest response to your exact location.
