Summary: I think this is going to be a great help in a lot of ways. Haven't really used it yet but am anxious to do so. The only thing I don't really like is the back light isn't very bright. Other than that am anxious to start using it to the full capacity.
Summary: I own a Rino 520 with optional software. I bought the Rino 120 for my elderly Dad who's not so into the high-techie stuff. For us this combo works extremely well for hunting, etc. He uses it just for the radio feature which works well, has good range, and has good clarity.
Summary: this has been an invaluable tool. i use it for hunting, camping, day trips, road trips, and geocaching. it is so user friendly my 7yr old can use it to find "treasures" (geocaches). the radio has good range as long as it is line of sight.
Summary: This is my 2nd garmin product, GPS V Deluxe being the first. I admit when I first purchased this product, I had mixed feelings. There were problems with the microphone clarity as compaired to motorola's frs group.
Summary: Easy to read, navagate thru the various features. Two way radio is very powerful. We use it up in Northern MN for deep woods hiking Bread Crumbs are very useful and tracking others in our party is a great feature.
Summary: Since purchasing this I have been using quite extensively, but never with someone who also has a Rino so I cannot comment on the ability to beam locations. I have several Motorolas that I use for various reasons and have had no real issues with communicating with them.
Summary: In Regards to the GPS functions/features it a great deal for the price. While the 2 way radio, well my title says it all, it's not a Motorola. The microphone is not sensitive enough no matter how loud you talk into mic, in addition people can not here you on other 2 way radios.
