NG may dissagree with me, but I personally think the rino is overrated. GMRS radios work with line of sight radio waves. If you are somewhere where you need a GPS, you probably dont have very good line of sight to the other person carrying a rino. You may get 2 miles of decent transmission tops-and that is if you climb to the top of a mountain before transmitting.warrior-man said:
For the most part, the legend and the 110 have about the same functions, with the exception of radio. But the 130 has an electroninc compas (which is a nice option) and an altimeter and barometer. But the next step up from the ledgend has that also for alot cheaper.warrior-man said:Are the legend and rino basically the same thing? Im searching google and amazon right now and i did notice that they said the radios dont get too good of reception, but i like how the screen looks and stuff too.
warrior-man said:Thats what i thought, they looked about the same. What do you mean by electronic compass? And i can spend about 200 dollars, so i dont know if i could get the next step up for either the legend or RINO 110.
I think the next step up is the summit. Still well under $200 I think. An electroninc compas works while standing still. Most GPS units dont have one so you have to be moving to get a N S E or west.
DO NOT BUY A GPS from CABELAS. Go to walmart. They have the same units, and cost a hell of alot less and dont charge shipping.
*edit* I just did a compare on Cabelas.com and noticed that the Legend has 8MB of memory and the RINO only has 1. Do you use that 8 and what do you use it for?
Yes, I use the extra memory for mapsource.
I was thinking the same thing as I was reading this... Actually caught me by surprise...CAMOGRIZZ said:I must now stop posting in this thread. People will start to get the wrong impression that I can at times be helpful.
