Summary: I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY HUSBAND WHO HAS NOT SET IT DOWN WHEN HE HAS TIME TO USE IT AND LEARN W/IT. WE ALSO PURCHASED GARMIN UNITED STATES TOPO MAPSOURCE, WE ENCOUNTERED THAT W/ NEW LAPTOPS THEY ARE DOING AWAY W/SERIAL PARELLEL PORT,SO GARMIN SHOULD CONSIDER OPTIONS FOR USB PORTS ALSO.
Summary: Why should you buy this one? The price is right! You have the GPS with the ability to send your location to other GPS units and a radio to talk to other walkie talkies on 22 communication channels. The good news is I already have 4 other walkie talkies that mate with this GPS.
Summary: I bought one of the first ones on the market, took it to Afghanistan twice and it broke on the last day when the belt clip snapped in the cold and it fell hard on a concrete flight line. Garmin gave me a new one under warranty, my fault and was willing to pay but they insisted I get a new one.
Summary: I purchased my fist Rino 120 a little less than a month ago. It operates as advertised. I like it so much I purchased a second unit today. No, not one for each hand. The second unit is for use by other members of my family.
Summary: For me the rino 120 is an upgrade from the etrex. I have no problems like a lot of you are mentioning. Mic works great, it works great with my Motorolas and I can send my position to another rino user using the GMRS range.
Summary: Garmin Rino 120 is the new GPS/Walkie-Talkie that my group picked up for out last kayaking outing. I already own Garmin Legend but I figured that I can sell it and for extra money have a reliable communication and navigation tool in one. Well using it all weekend proved that it was worth the money.
Summary: When I ordered this product, I read many reviews and tried to get a good background of the Rino 120 to see if the product was worth purchasing. I have had 2 other GPS units, and still have an older GPS III from Garmin and really like the capabilities of that unit.
Summary: I have just purchased my second unit and have a few things to share with the first time buyer. This unit comes with a serial cable that is used for programming the unit and sending GPS data to the computer. after getting a new unit, check for updated firmware at garmin.com.
