Garmin Rino 120 Review

garmin rhino 120 reviewThe Garmin Rino 120 communicates and navigates much better than your pet rhino, plus it’s smaller.

The Garmin 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.

Your phone has a camera, so why shouldn’t your handheld GPS unit have a two-way radio?

Garmin Rino 120 Review by Ary
4 out of 5 stars
I used this for 5 yrs. This was a 4th occasional dunk. Kayak tipped over in ocean. It is hard to tell how deep it went but dot deeper than 1m as duffle bag was attached to the vessel. The damage affected only the display because the picture still appears once in a while. Don’t know if it is worth of a repair. Otherwise it was a great navigation instrument and it took a lot of abuse. RIP. Sometimes it was very slow to obtain a connection w/sats. Display could be brighter and larger.

More Info – Garmin Rino 120 Review
The Rino series from Garmin revolutionizes backcountry adventure and safety with its unique location sending feature—not only can you talk to other FRS radio users, you can actually beam your location to anyone using another Garmin Rino within a 2 mile radius. The Rino 120 has 8MB of internal memory, capable of storing any of the hundreds of marine, topo, street, and point-of-interest maps available online from MapSource, and a built-in basemap of American roads and highways to get you started. You’ll be confident of your location with the 3-meter accuracy of the Rino’s WAAS-enabled GPS no matter if you’re in the city or deep in the woods. A signal-scrambler lets you keep your radio conversations private, the vibrate mode won’t scare away the wildlife (or annoy your fellow hikers), and the waterproof housing survives the occasional dunk.

Questions from our readers.

Question: Is the Garmin Rino used by Navy SEALs? We do know that the Garmin Foretrex 401 GPS is used by Navy SEAL Team Six as evidenced by abandoned gear at a recent Somali terrorist raid.
