Summary: I purchased two Garmin Rhino 530HCx units for hiking and hunting purposes. I then learned that I had to buy expensive additional topographic maps to meet my needs. The GPS functions are not very intuitive. After downloading my maps, I still cannot figure out how to display the maps on the units.
Summary: FYI .....Garmin is FAMOUSLY "INFAMOUS" for not including pertinent info in their literature....Therefore: be aware that the Rinos' WILL NOT TRANSMIT ON 5 WATTS UNLESS THE LITHIUM-ION BATTERY IS INSTALLED and you have the "americas" version.
Summary: Concerning the weight is heavy for a gps or radio unit, and the belt clip seems fragile. The gps unit works fine, fast scan in maps but a bit insensible. The screen is good, colorfull and fine resolution.
Summary: This unit does a great job, except for one thing. The range is very poor. The feature set is amazing, and as long as you can "reach" each other, the radio and GPS features are really great, but how do they get away with advertising such great range when we can barely get 1.5 miles out of this thing?
Summary: I bought this unit for a Deer hunt in Utah. While there are many things to like about it, my unit had a number of negatives that ended up being a dealbreaker with me. I would also like to preface this review by saying that I have extensive experience with marine GPS units, starting with the first...
