Summary: this radio has great qualities. e-compass isn't as sensitive as i thought it would be, the antennae is loose, i keep tucking it back into base, but little use it works its way back out, worried rain/water might get under. for the most part, had no problems.

Excerpt: I think this product is awesome. All aspects of it work great. GPS can be increased in heavy cover areas by enabling WAAS. Two way radio works good to about 10 miles, about 5 or 6 if many obstacles.
Summary: Bought after using a Rino 120 for several years. Great unit if you don't need night vision compatibility. Color screen is easy on the eyes, larger than the older model. Still uses Motorola accessories and has great features.
Summary: Love this item and will use it in the near future camping and it even worked while I was in Iraq. did not come with any maps but does have the basic important lines for the states and main highways. Would recomend this but ensure that you know that you do not get any cool maps with this.
Summary: I bought this, went on a hike, and after 30 way-points, it shut off! When I turned it back on, my route was erased! And no, I didn't press the power button. Geesh. So, I returned it, got another one. A week later, I got the second one, went on a hike, and poof! After 30 way-points, off it goes!
Summary: I purchased the Garmin 530 GPS for my husband, son, and son-in-law in hopes of keeping them safe and connected during their hunting adventures in the great north woods of Maine. They are thrilled with the product and found it wonderfully easy to use and incredibly accurate.

Excerpt: This product is very misleading. The GPS works like any other GPS. The two radio and peer to peer positioning works worse than a radio shack two way radio. If anything is in the view between the two radios it doesn't work.
