I'm hot for that new 130 also. it would be great if the FCC opened up the GMRS frequency to allow the transmission of location data and text-messaging, but I don't know........

I already own a 110, and I like it alot. I bought 110 over the 120 because I had a feeling Garmin would build on the RINO principal, yet I wanted a toy, so I went with the cheap one figuring I'd add the expensive one later.

Technology, your always outdated once you buy.............

I'm using the rino 130 Kitch, so far it's worked well, but I haven't been able to try the text messaging, don't know any other rino 130 users (do they have to be 130s to do that?). Love having a basemap, I was able to see the railroad track I was on all the way out to washington (btw great ride out here, a bit bumpy, but I got a couple locationless caches at some stops along the way.

Anxious to try the position reporting. Good luck on the GMRS though, to legallay transmit on it, you need a 75 dollar license from the FCC (that has to be renewed every year).

I have a Rino130 too and love it. Haven't had a chance to use the text messaging yet either. I guess next time I am at an event with KC0GRN I will have to play! Very Happy

JT and I have used the RINO's together (I only have a 110 for now our birthday is only a few weeks away). Wink They work really slick.

I found another use we plan to try it at work this summer. One of our station staff is riding in a 3 day bike tour, and we plan to follow her as she rides. We will be using our chopper to get aerial shots and we plan to stick a RINO on her bike, a RINO in the chopper, and a 3rd in the chase van. When she hears the chopper, she can ping her location and we can locate her a bit easier, plus talk directly to her. We should get pretty good range being above her with no terrain issues.
