Description: The Rino 110 is a GPS-enabled handheld that integrates radio functionality to provide two-way communications. It's waterproof, can send communications up to five miles (using GMRS channels), and can "beam" your exact location to another Rino user within a two-mile range (on the FRS spectrum) using "Position Reporting". And because the Rino 110 has standard FRS capabilities, you can talk to friends or family who own conventional FRS radios.


Imagine a cross between a walkie talkie and a Star Trek communicator, that's the best way to understand the Garmin's Rino 110. Not just a powerful GPS receiver, this two-way radio can even track your friends and transmit your location to others. These innovative features and low price makes it ideal whether hiking, hunting, playing paintball or just checking up on your kids.

100 meters: Accuracy of the original GPS system, which was subject to accuracy degradation under the government-imposed Selective Availability (SA) program.
15 meters: Typical GPS position accuracy without SA.
3-5 meters: Typical differential GPS (DGPS) position accuracy.
Less than 3 meters: Typical WAAS position accuracy.

About the size of a small cordless phone, the bright-yellow and black Rino 110 has two fixed antennas coming out of the top. One antenna lets you talk at up to two miles using 14 FRS (Family Radio Service) channels. It also can communicate across 8 GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) channels, offering up to 5 miles of range, though this requires an FCC license.


The other antenna offers the advanced WAAS-enabled GPS tracking you'd expect from Garmin (see chart at right). Using the large 160 x 160 pixel backlit display you can save up to 20 different routes and 500 waypoints in the unit's 1 MB of memory. Plus, in addition to the built-in cities database, you can even upload maps from Garmin's Points of Interest CD with an optional adapter.


The fun really starts when you combine these two features. The Rino can transmit its location to others at up to two miles and track up to 50 contacts simultaneously. So, for instance, you can display a map on the screen with the names and locations of all of your friends, or select a friend and have the Rino guide you to their location.


The Rino's graphical interface makes it easy to control its myriad functions with a 5-way cursor, similar to those found on laptop keyboards, which lets you move quickly across the menu screens. This waterproof device runs on 3 AAA batteries.


Once you use the Rino 110, it's hard to imagine purchasing a two-way radio without GPS functionality, the two features go so well together. --Ken Feinstein

Pros: Very easy to use, Many features, Compact, integrated FRS & GMRS.
Cons: buttons are small and sometimes difficult to use.

I purchased this unit a month ago to go Geocaching (an outdoor game). I have been very plesed with the wide vareity of features it boasts, including path tracking, the ability to store routes, and audio cues to let you know when you are approaching a specific point, turn, etc. The interface is very well organized and easy to navigate. All of the functions and controls are intuitive and easy to use. I noticed that some other reviews here had extensve lists of complaints against this unit. I have experianced none of the problems that they reported. You do need to take a little time to sit down with your unit and familiarize your self with it before you go out, but it is by no means difficult to figure out on your own or with the help of the quick start guide. Overall a very good choice for basic GPS navigation

Pros: light weight.Waterproof.fairly easy to use
Cons: color

I bought the 110 for hunting and hiking. I wasn't interested in the 120 due to cost and features i would never use. The 110 frs radio is pretty good. I can communicate with my buddy easily although we didn't test the range over 1 km.I chose the American version of the RINO because GMRS radio channels on the Canadian version are not available. I want GMRS for safety reasons. The gps works well. It doesn't lose its signal very often and i have to be in pretty thick bush for it to do so. But it re acquires very fast.The backlight works well.The Rino is pretty easy to use if you study the manual. And the manual isnt small because its packed with information on all its features. There are a lot of features. The manual itself is pretty clear. Battery life is ok as i have nothing to compare it to. It lasts the whole day hunting so there ya go. I keep extra batteries in my pack for emergencies.Waterproof. Light weight. I'm not thrilled with the yellow color.I have owned the RINO for 1 hunting season and to date i like it. It does everything i want it to do and it already has saved my lost %#$. You think you know an area until you get lost. And it happens.
The RINO 110 doesn't come with an interface cable to transfer way points on a map. I tried to build my own cable and needed directions as to why the rino wasn't communicating with my computer. They send me a cable free of charge. I was very impressed by that . Most companies would have charged you a hefty sum for an interface cable if it wasn't included with a product.
I think garmin makes a high quality gps. I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: Very accurate
Cons: Eats up battery life like you wouldn't believe.

Radio has a limited radio range but otherwise a nice GPS. Accessory cord to auto lighter connection is very expensive
