CRUMMY ELEVATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

Ranger Dad, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, the Garmin 530HCx has the absolute worst users manual of any tech gadget out there. It explains little, and leaves out a lot. Sometimes the temperature displays, sometimes it doesn't, for example, and the user's manual doesn't even acknowledge that the device shows temperature in the first place, let alone its on/off behavior, or where on the unit its thermometer is located.

Great radio/gps. Good features but.....

Steve, Amazon

  • Summary: My company owns four of the Garmin Rino 530Hcx radio/gps's and have been using them for the last three years. We do surveying and each of us walks 5-10 miles per day where there is little or no cell phones service and the Rino 530s work great allowing us to keep track of where everyone is at all times. The Rinos up are extremely durable.

  • Summary: I bought this on a suggestion from my son. He has one and thought that I would like it too. It can do an endless amount of things, and needless to say I am still learning all of them. This perfect for what I need, however.

  • Summary: I have used the garmin rino for about 3 years now. it works great on hunting trips in Alaska alpine hunts with multiple parties splitting up. it is a sturdy device. i have used it on combo kayak/hike/hunt trips and it has stood up to saltwater, rain, snow, freezing, falls, etc. the GPS works great and uploads map very well. it does need some upgrades though and i hope that the garmin engineers are working on it. First, it needs to have a VHF radio.

  • Summary: The expandable memory is great for the newer, higher quality maps that are coming out for these devices. Without the expanded memory you are fairly limited to what you can load and keep loaded on your GPS

Awesome with great hunting functionality

Mark L. Conway, Amazon

  • Summary: I used the 530HCX on my sons elk hunting trip. It was great for locating areas in the dark that I would not have found without it. The radio works without any problems. This GPS is my first, and I can't believe how intuitive and responsive it is. Extremely easy to operate, even if you've never used one before. The only drawback is that the GPS comes with a very minimal map the is almost usless... So you have to buy the Garmin Map ranging for $70-120.

Must Have for Hunting & Fishing

Kent Summers "Koonta Kentay", Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: Make sure you invest 3 to 4 solid hours to understand how to navigate all the features and capabilities, and you will be very happy with this device. Pretty much everything you need for hunting and fishing, especially if you're with other Garmin owners. The peer-to-peer location and communication is outstanding. The Topo map is essential for hunting. Good battery life (better than I expected). Best part: you can wander around aimlessly focusing on the hunt...

Rino 530

Chris Bentz, Amazon
6 January 2009
  • Summary: Love the product. Was here very fast and was the best deal i could find anywhere by 20%. would give 4.5 stars if i could, the only complaint is that it i was not aware that you needed to purchase the mini SD card before you could download or save anything to the GPS. If there could be any improvement, perhaps a warning or note to the affect that the SD card is not included. Other than that I'm Verry happy. Thanks Amazon!
