Garmin Rino 120 GPS Review

 

Equipped with enough memory to download detailed maps for driving, hiking, hunting, fishing, or just about anything else you can dream up, the Rino 120 is small and waterproof and built to last.

RINO 110 HANDHELD / PORTABLE GPS

 

I like it and plan to use it on my next hunting trip.

Very easy to use and set up. Also it is much more accurate that my old device.

I can not see the screens without my glasses because the fonts are far too small. It would be noce if these could be enlarged. It is a bit of a disadvantage but not horrible.

Garmin Rino 120 GPS Receiver

 

I would give the overall rating a 9.5 for features and ease of usage as well as durabillity, but when used with BRAND NEW batteries on TWO different 110s and a 120 I could not get more than 3 hours use of them nomatter how I changed the settings.

there is nothing better than two different units (gps) (two way) on the 4wheelers and not having to take two seperate units and trying to pay attention to them both aswell the trail

only three batteries and to units, the batteries are drained to fast when tracking and the radio is on too

RINO 120 HANDHELD / PORTABLE GPS

 

Very much like this. Bought with a Rino 130 so that I could geocache with my wife. Both are great radios and great GPSs. I highly recommend to anyone who might have use for both capbilities.

FRS radio so you and a friend can chat when you are out of earshot. Comes with belt clip and cable to interface with computer.

Does not have the magnetic compass like the more expensive Rino 130. Power button is little difficult to press.
