Okay, That’s Weird

I’ve just fall­en in lust with a gad­get that is so com­plete­ly unre­lat­ed to who I am and the life I lead that the thought of me buy­ing it is inconceivable.

And yet, We wants it! Now!!!!!

Um, sor­ry. I don’t think my inner Gol­lum has ever got­ten out before. Please excuse the outburst.

I chal­lenge any­one with the least bit of geek in her soul to resist its lure.

The Garmin Rino 130 GPS-Inte­grat­ed FRS/GMRS Radio

The Rino 130 is the most fea­ture-rich unit in the Rino fam­i­ly, with a built-in elec­tron­ic com­pass, baro­met­ric sen­sor, weath­er receiv­er for sev­en NOAA weath­er chan­nels, and 24 MBs of inter­nal mem­o­ry. This hand­held radio has a built-in elec­tron­ic com­pass to give a head­ing while the user is stand­ing still, and a baro­met­ric altime­ter to pro­vide extreme­ly accu­rate ele­va­tion and pres­sure infor­ma­tion, which will assist users in iden­ti­fy­ing weath­er data.

The Rino 130 pro­vides two-way radio com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a trans­mis­sion range of up to two miles using FRS chan­nels and up to five miles with GMRS. The inte­gra­tion of two-way radio and GPS enables users to trans­mit their posi­tion with a sim­ple but­ton press, allow­ing oth­ers to nav­i­gate to their posi­tion. The Rino 130 also has a polling fea­ture, which allows a user to man­u­al­ly request GPS loca­tion infor­ma­tion from oth­er Rino units.

The Rino 130 offers a detailed basemap of North and South Amer­i­ca, dis­play­ing cities, high­ways, rail­ways, rivers and lakes, and bor­ders. And because of the unit’s robust inter­nal mem­o­ry, it can store map data from a vari­ety of Garmin Map­Source® CD prod­ucts, includ­ing U.S. Topo 24K™, U.S. Topo™, Recre­ation­al Lakes™, BlueChart®, and MetroGuide®.
