Garmin Rino 110 2-Way Radio/GPS As Part Of The Hunting & Fishing Gear Review Holiday Gift Guide

HFG Gift Guide

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. The Rino 110 has a built-in city point data base, with 1 MB of internal memory for additional points-of-interest data that can be downloaded from a MapSource® Points of Interest CD-ROM.

The Rino's exclusive position reporting feature allows you to send and receive GPS positions from other Rino® users so you can keep track of your friends on skiing or camping trips, sporting events, and other outdoor adventures.

Rinos transmit a user's position through the FRS spectrum. The seven voice-only GMRS channels are dedicated to vocal communication only. Position information can be transmitted to any other Rino user within a two-mile range.

The image on the right shows an example of four people keeping track of each other's positions using a Rino 110.

Position reporting can be activated using either the "call" or "talk" keys. When the "call" key is released, it activates the Position Reporting function, sending your current GPS location to other Rinos.

When the call is received by another Rino, the New Contact page is displayed showing the ID, direction, and distance of the sender. The sender's position is also displayed on the receiving unit's map page. Your position is updated every second, and you can transmit your location to others once every 10 seconds.

This could be a life-saving feature in an outdoor emergency —or it could be used simply for rounding up the family at an amusement park or outdoor resort.
