Great piece of mind when we go different directions
18 February 2015
Summary: Bought a pair of these for my wife and I for hunting and hiking. Great piece of mind when we go different directions. We can keep track of each other especially when we are a mile apart. We used these in NW and NE WYOMING, then N.

Summary: I currently own a Rino 120, Rino 530hcx, and now the 655t. Overall this radio is everything I expected. The maps that come preloaded into it are excellent, the GPS acquires signal fast, and the 2 way radio transmits and receives much better than any other handheld unit I have used.
The menu screens are reasonably easy to understand and navigate

Summary: I purchased the 655t a year ago and have been very please with it. The menu screens are reasonably easy to understand and navigate. The maps are accurate. My friend purchased the 530 model that has buttons instead of the touch screen because he was concerned that the touch screen on the 655t would...
Summary: Feature rich. I like that you can send text to your contacts. Also a very sensitive GPS, I can pick up upto 7 satellites in my house my old rino 120 has to be outside and is limited to 4 satellites, I've seen up to 9 feet of accuracy in my house, wow.
Summary: The 655t is a great GPS, but more complicated than the one I had before. I don't like that part of the features turn off when the battery gets a little low. You have to carry a second GOOD battery to be sure all features will work until you are done for the day.
Summary: Small learning curve,once our hunting party all figured out the volumn is off every time you turn it on and you have to update your location every time you move iy became a very good tool to use. No issues with communication though we are always within a couple of miles of each other.
Summary: Very reliable and intuitive system. Have used it a little over a year with no issues. Easy to upload 24K maps for greater detail plus several companies offer hunting specific maps that can be uploaded. Like the text capability which is a real plus when you need to stay quiet.
