Our take on the Garmin Rino® 650

by Dominic Devito
Garmin

Guidance and two-way communication

The waterproof Garmin Rino 650 GPS handheld features a built-in FRS/GMRS radio, allowing you to communicate with your pals on the trail, in the woods, or over water. You'll get outstanding guidance, including a worldwide basemap, electronic compass, and barometric altimeter. It'll also allow you to share data wirelessly with similar devices so you can keep your geocaching group up-to-date with your latest explorations. You can also save routes for future expeditions and take advantage of Garmin's hunt/fish calendar and celestial data for fun under the sun or moon. And even without cell service, you can still keep up with your friends.

The Rino 650's rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 14 hours of use between charges, and you can use "AA" batteries as backup. The handheld also gives you NOAA weather radio reports so you'll know when potentially unsafe conditions are approaching.

See your maps and photos clearly

The Rino 650's 2.6" color screen lets you check out the included worldwide basemap with shaded relief, even in direct sunlight. You can even download geotagged photos from the Internet and navigate to them.

Know where you are at all times

The Rino 610 features a quad helix antenna and sensitive GPS receiver so it'll find you in a hurry and lock on to your position. You'll be covered in deep canyons and under thick foliage, or even when surrounded by skyscrapers. The handheld's 3-axis electronic compass and barometric altimeter help keep you on course.

Keep up with your companions

Not only will you be able to radio your friends on FRS and GMRS channels with the Rino 650, you can also send unit-to-unit text messages with time stamps to other Rino users in the area. That's great for when it's windy or loud outside, or for just not bothering Mother Nature. The Rino 650 also features Position Reporting, so you can send your exact location to other Rino users, which they'll see on their map screens — a real help if you're worried about getting separated in the wild. You can even track multiple contacts on the same screen.

The Rino 650 also allows you to set up multiple profiles so your contacts can get different pictures of your personality, depending on what activities you have in common.

Add some maps for more fun

The Rino 650 offers 1.7 GB of onboard memory, so you can download additional topo, marine, and road maps with ease. It'll also accept maps via microSD™ card. You can also employ BirdsEye Satellite imagery with an optional subscription, allowing you to download satellite images to the handheld and integrate them into your maps. Garmin's Custom Maps feature lets you transform your old paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps you can transfer to the handheld, for extra backup.

Get your computer involved

Register with Garmin BaseCamp online so you can view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks, as well as plan trips and tag photos that you can share over the Internet. If you've got multiple Rino devices, you can track them on your computer screen using Garmin's exclusive BaseStation feature, handy for search and rescue teams or tracking dogs.
