Summary: I cannot recommend this unit highly enough. It does everything imaginable and the accuracy and ability to acquire satellites is remarkable, even under wet tree canopy or inside a house. Highest possible recommendation. It has saved the day many times for me in remote Alaska.
Summary: bought it so he could use it with the Map memory chip so he knew what was private vs public land while hunting. Plus he got a similar one for his dad so they can find each other in the mountains.
Summary: Really like these units. Sorry to hear they stopped making them. They now have a touch screen radio that does well but my friend that has one keeps accidentally changing settings when she grabs the radio. Not much to say since you can't buy this radio anyway.
Summary: I really love my Garmin Rhino radios I bought two and that are solid, I have used them camping, hiking, canoeing, snowboarding, and the GPS location report feature is great for finiding friends and just locating yourself on the map. Quality radio with good range as well. Very happy with these.
Summary: Small enough to fit comfortable in my jacket. Picks up the satellite signal even inside my four wheeler. Range on the radio is good and it's wonderful to be able to see where the other units are located.Nice GPS.
Summary: Top of the line product reducing weight by combining the radio and gps. The range of the radio is amazing, I can get ~20 miles on a clear shot. Recommend to anyone who is heading into the wilderness!
Summary: fabulous combo of walkie talkie and gps but did not use it very much as we did not do sufficient homework before going to the wilds of B.C. it was a great discount and arrived in 2 wk in great condition,jim
Not bad, a rough and tuff version of similar GPS's

Summary: The Garmin Rino 520HCx is a pretty good tough GPS for any trail type use (Capable not not recommended for automotive use). It is bigger and heavy than many similar GPS units (due to the 2 way radio transmitter), but not bad. Same size/shape of other Garmin Rinos (Rino 110, Rino 120, etc).
