Garmin Rino 530 Review Rino 520 Review (Preview)
According to sources, Garmin might be getting ready to release a new GPS in their Rino series. The Garmin Rino 530 and Rino 520 will supposedly be next in the line of Garmin Rino series of GPS which include the Garmin Rino 110, Garmin Rino 120, and Garmin Rino 130 GPS Systems.
The Rino 530 and Rino 520 are estimated to weigh 7.6 ounces and are a 12 channel GPS. The Rino series (Radio Integrated with Navigation for the Outdoors) is known for its two-way radio communications functionality that provides “walkie-talkie” type communications over a distance of two miles using FRS or up to five miles using GMRS.
Garmin has given the Rino 530 and Rino 520 three user-selectable power levels and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. A North American basemap is included with interstate (including exit information) and state highway maps. Up to 24 MB of data can be stored using the optional Garmin MapSource Trip and Waypoint Manager Software.
The Garmin Rino 530 and Garmin Rino 520 is waterproof to IPX7 standards and is WAAS capable. Acquisition time is 5 minutes on initial locate, 45 seconds for normal cold starts, and 15 seconds from a warm start. Pricing and availability are unknown, but we hope to have that information soon. The size and shape will be very similar to the current Rino line.
