RINO 120 Discontinued

GPS-Integrated FRS/GMRS Radio

The Rino 120 is state-of-the-art GPS navigation and two-way communications combined, with enough memory to download detailed mapping for driving, hiking, hunting, fishing-or just about anything else you can dream up.

It's waterproof and can "beam" your exact location to another Rino user on FRS or GMRS channels using "Position Reporting". The radio functionality of the Rino 120 provides two-way communications for up to two miles using FRS channels, 5 miles using GMRS channels, and you can talk to friends or family who own conventional FRSGMRS radios. There's also a voice scrambler and a vibration mode for silent calls.

The Rino 120 has a built-in basemap consisting of American road and highway detail, along with 8 MB of internal memory for downloading additional road, street, and points-of-interest data from MapSource MetroGuideT, Fishing Hot Spots, Topo, or BlueChart CD-ROMs. The PC-interface cable also comes with the Rino 120.

Position Reporting
The Rino's exclusive position reporting feature allows you to send and receive GPS positions from other Rino users so you can keep track of your friends on skiing or camping trips, sporting events, and other outdoor adventures. Position information can be transmitted to any other Rino user within a two-mile range on FRS channels and within a five-mile range on GMRS channels.
How it works
Position reporting can be activated using either the "call" or "talk" keys. When the "call" key is released, it activates the Position Reporting function, sending your current GPS location to other Rinos. When the call is received by another Rino, the New Contact page is displayed showing the ID, direction, and distance of the sender. The sender's position is also displayed on the receiving unit's map page. Your position is updated every second, and you can transmit your location to others once every 30 seconds. This could be a life-saving feature in an outdoor emergency - or it could be used simply for rounding up the family at an amusement park or outdoor resort.

Rino 120 Features
• WAAS-enabled GPS receiver
• 22 communication channels: 1-14 FRS, 15-22 GMRS
• 38 sub-audible squelch codes per transmission channel for semi-private radio communications

• External voice activation (VOX)

• Ergonomic design for one-handed operation, with Call, Press-To-Talk (PTT), and Page mode buttons on the side, Power/Backlighting button on top, and Volume and Zoom buttons in front
• Unique 5-way cursor for channel selection and volume adjustment in FRS/GMRS mode, and quick map panning, entering, and selecting functions in GPS mode
• Voice scrambler and vibration mode for silent calls
• Built in basemap consisting of American road and highway detail, along with 8 MB of internal memory for additional road, lake, marine, and points-of-interest data that can be downloaded from MapSource MetroGuide, Fishing Hot Spots, Topo, or BlueChart CDs.

The FCC has granted Garmin a waiver that will allow the Rino series units to send position data on GMRS channels. In addition, Industry Canada has established a license-free GMRS service. Canadian Rino 120 units (010-00272-22) will now allow users access to GMRS channels. Position sending/polling will also be allowed on Canadian GMRS channels. These new capabilities are available with a simple software update obtained free of charge from the Garmin Web site.
