Rino 520 (Canadian version) Discontinued

This item is replaced by Rino 520 HCx

The Rino 520 is a rugged, two-way radio with GPS. Similar to the Rino 530, it has a bold colour display, and turn-by-turn directions. The Canadian version has a communication range of up to 8 miles. As with other members of the Rino family, the 520's patented location-reporting feature allows you to send and receive GPS positions with other Rino users in your group. One call to your partner's Rino, and your location shows up on the map page. This also enables one Rino to poll another Rino's location in emergency situations.

Additional features unique to the Rino 520 include:
• Bold color TFT display makes it easy to see and navigate to family or friends with Rinos at an amusement park, lake, or other outdoor group activity
• Automatic route generation, off-route recalculation, turn-by-turn directions with alert tones, and icon-driven menus for finding points of interest (when combined with Garmin's optional MapSource City Select software) navigate you safely to your next outdoor adventure
• Mini USB and 56 megabytes of internal memory for rapid download and lots of map storage of Garmin's entire line of outdoor cartography.
• 2 watts of transmit power (Canada GMRS) means you can call for help from up to 5 miles away. (The US model has a transmit power using GMRS of 5 watts for a range of up to 14 miles.)
• Rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery provides up to 16 hours of outdoor use. Optional alkaline battery pack provides up to 18 hours typical use.

The Rino 520 comes with a built-in Americas Recreational basemap of North and South America. When combined with Garmin's optional City Select software, it provides automatic route generation, off-route recalculation, turn-by-turn directions with alert tones, and icon-driven menus for finding points of interest. Customize map data for use on land or sea with Garmin's entire line of optional outdoor cartography including TOPO Canada, U.S. Topo 24K, U.S. Topo, Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots, and BlueChart.

USER NOTE: 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 units now allow users access to GMRS channels. Position sending/polling will also be allowed on Canadian GMRS channels.
USER TIP: When using a Ram or Garmin mounting bracket, there isn't an opening to allow for an external power adapter.
