Garmin Rino 530HCx Expandable Color GPS-Enabled 2-Way Radio
Introducting the most exquisite Rino of them all - the Garmin RINO 530HCx!
Know exactly where you are at all times with Rino 530HCx and the precision of high-sensitivity GPS. This waterproof FRS/GMRS radio plus GPS navigator adds a barometric altimeter, electronic compass and NOAA weather radio in addition to the popular features of the Rino 520HCx - 5 watts of transmit power, a microSD card slot, brilliant color display and a high-sensitivity GPS receiver - so you'll never be lost again.
Pinpoint Your Position
With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver, Rino 530HCx locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Rino 530HCx to help you find your way when you need it the most.
Find Your Friends
Like the rest of the Rino series, Rino 530HCx offers a unique Position Reporting feature. Position Reporting lets you send your exact location to other Rino users in your group so that everyone can see your position on the map page. And, because Rino is a standard FRS/GMRS radio, you can use it to communicate with any other conventional FRS/GMRS radio around.
Transmit with Power
Rino 530HCx boasts a whopping 5 watts of transmit power (GMRS), which lets you contact others from up to 14 miles away (line of sight). In Canada, you can transmit at 2 watts over GMRS with a range of up to 8 miles.
Other Rino 530HCx features:
- Barometric altimeter pinpoints your precise elevation.
- Electronic compass tells you what direction you're headed, even when you're standing still.
- Bold color TFT display makes it easy to see and navigate to family or friends at an amusement park, lake or other outdoor group activity.
