  • Summary: The screen is small and when you try to lighten the back ground you also lighten the word. So what good is it if you can't separate the words from the background.

Garmin Rino GPS 120

rmbbkdhanni, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased this for my husband - receiving the GPS took longer than I expected - my son also has the same unit - when they both got them - my son took off in his truck to talk to his dad - the range was about 1 1/2 miles - we felt this was very poor - he hasn't used it in the mountains yet, but is thinking if it can't reach very far in a small town, the mountains won't be very great either especially with a canyon between them.

Rino 120 is OK but not the best

  • Summary: Comments about Garmin Rino 120: Works great when it works! Have had problems with one eatting batteries and another unit dropping saved locations. For viewing maps and GPS location it works great.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

"Can't understand audio"

CNET
1 September 2004
  • Pros: Nice concept, ruggerd design easy to use.
  • Cons: Audio almost useless, Range rating not even close, (I tested on open water no obstructions), software freezes and batteries need to be pulled to reset. Try doing that out on a kayak on the ocean. Hope they just make them work like they claim

Excellent GPS, Below Average Radio

Matt Jachyra, Amazon
2 December 2003
  • Summary: I bought this device to cut down by one the number of electronic gizmos that I carry around while traveling with my family, not for its position transmission feature. After using the Rino I think that the combination of radio and GPS in one device is an excellent idea in theory, but the execution of the idea in the Rino is flawed because of the poor performance of the radio.

Fun Toy, Awkward Tool

Orome "Aldaron", Amazon
8 May 2003
  • Summary: These radios cram a lot of great features in a package that almost fits in a pocket. And the price isn't bad for the combination of a decent radio and an adequate GPS, especially when you can do neat things like broadcast your position to other Rinos so that it appears on their GPS map display. But all these great features only really work if you are paying close of attention. There are simply too many features to use conveniently as part of any real outdoor activity.
