Summary: I bought this for hunting in the fall so it would match up with my son's GPS. It is great and anyone who has one can be located on the map as to where they are. This was also less than half the price. I am happy with it.
Summary: Needed for work to keep in touch with other crew members. Works great out in the field. Everybody knows nexactly where their located. The Garmin 520Cx GPS Receiver does everytrhing I expected of it.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Rino 520 a few weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive hand held GPS. The GPS size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 10 hours. My only complaint is that it takes a little while to receive signals from satilites. I use this in extreme weather and terain and have had no problems at all!
Summary: I currently own a 530HCx,and love it, so I bought my wife one so we can communicate, and also pinpoint each other if one of us gets lost. We also have 10 other riders that have these as well. A super great product, and a great safety tool. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that likes outdoor activities where there is a possibility of getting lost.
Summary: Radio included is great asset. Ability to locator other parties in our group is a great befifit. We have had hunters stranded in the Mts. on several occassions. Great comfort asset. The weather alert is another great asset.I use it on the water fishing.
Pros: Accurate, Intuitive Menu, One Hand Control, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception
Summary: Like the display clarity, ease of use, 5watts of power, satellite pickup sensitivity (worked in heavy fog), ability to upload topomaps. Exceptional GPS and two way radio in mountain conditions.
Summary: My rino 520 is amazing. My buddies and i track deer alot and we all have a rino 520 or 530 and we have been able to talk to each other in the mountains of maine, vermont and new hampshire from as far as 10 miles.
Pros: Accurate, Extensive Base Map, Intuitive Menu, Large Screen, One Hand Control, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception
