Description: The Rino 120 is state-of-the-art GPS navigation and two-way communications combined, with enough memory to download detailed mapping for driving, hiking, hunting, fishing, or just about anything else you can dream up.


The Rino 120 is waterproof and can beam your exact location to another Rino user within a two-mile range (on the FRS spectrum) using the position reporting feature. The radio functionality of the Rino 120 provides two-way communications for up to two miles (using FRS channels), and you can talk to friends or family who own conventional FRS radios. There's also a voice scrambler and a vibration mode for silent calls.


The Rino 120 has a built-in basemap consisting of American road and highway detail, along with 8 MB of internal memory for downloading additional road, street, and points-of-interest data from MapSource MetroGuide, Fishing Hot Spots, Topo, or BlueChart CD-ROMs. A PC-interface cable also comes with the Rino 120.

Pros: Battery life, GPS accuracy, features, concept
Cons: Radio is simply useless. Not exaggerating.

GPS is great.


Radio has caused me lots of troubles. On first hunting trip, nobody could hear me, I thought the radio was crap, it was nearly a year old and I didn't have the receipt, but I called Garmin and they agreed to fix it. I sent it in, and they said there was glue blocking the mic hole, so I was transmitting carrier fine, but very little voice was getting through. No charge. You don't get service like that much anymore.


This may be causing lots of other people problems too, that they are interpreting as a bad radio. It's a small manufacturing issue.


Still, I used it again recently, Estes Park Colorado, 0.9 miles (according to GPS) line of sight from cabin to lodge, and my wife said she barely could hear me, so I switched over to a Motorola and it was fine. I once again thought transmission power was low, but later she explained that I wasn't breaking up, but it was hard to understand. I finally got my daughter to help me test the sound quality out. I now understand, the Rino sound quality (transmit) is very poor, perhaps still some glue in the mic hole? My Motorola cheapo talkabout is much clearer, and the Motorola Distance is even better. Not sure what the problem is, perhaps the waterproofing gets in the way of sound quality. It's not the transmit range that is bad, its the transmit audio quality.


Also very disappointed that the most interesting feature of this thing (peer-to-peer position reporting) is practically useless, it only works on FRS, not GMRS. Real disappointing. I know its an FCC rule, but why have a good idea that can't be implemented correctly?


The screen. For a long time I was dissapointed in the quality, it's very picky about viewing angle and reflections, especially in a car. The screen is very reflective and you have to hold it just right to see it clearly. Why can't it be clear like a cell phone? Strangely, it works great (best) in direct sunlight. Go figure. In that regard, it works better than a cell phone.

Pros: great gps
Cons: none

This thing is ready to go out of the box, and is very simple to use for newbies, but also has all the functions for those gurus. I got mine from newegg.com. GReat prices.

Pros: globle texting
Cons: limited 12hr batterylife and no rechargablity

I've found that by changing the ID name to words you can text global with the rino 120. you need to be on the same channel and code on the radio with the radio part on and send location on in radio setup ,then key to send (NO texting charges apply at this time.) have free fun texting.
