Summary: Drop so much in forest not good as $15.00 walkie talkie poor pooooooooorrr nooot good do not buy this model the 110 is still better saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddddd noooooot gooooodddddd !!!!
Summary: this device is as clunky as a hammer made of jello, and feels about as ergonomic. not sure what Garmin was smoking when they made this but let's see monochrome with bad lighting controls, awful menu, tiny useless buttons, serial cable connect to pc.... yeah the totally obsolete no reason to use serial"the port no computer has had for a long time", battery compartment is well stupid but unlike the other features.
Pros: ease of use, great little screen, great idea of the features!
Cons: to locate buddy only works on FRS..not GMRS, I had problems with the radio transmitting on ALL 3 UNITS (1, I got a loud horn like sound, 2 would not transmit more then 100 yards, 3 would not transmit at all...... I sent ALL 3 back and emailed Garmin. All
Cons: The audio quality is the lowest of any FRS radio I have used. The poor quality of the radio function makes the Rino an simply an oversized GPS. The concept of GPS tracking of other Rino users is great, but the radio is limited by the FCC in that GPS loc
Pros: Good GPS (but there are so many others - I use the Garmin 12XL)
Cons: The radio - I bought the unit so I wouldn't have to carry both a GPS and a radio when I enter the woods alone in hunting season...now I leave the RINO 120 at home and take my Motorola and 12XL. And, yes, I did read the manual. Great idea, poor product = a
