TomOfTarsus Posted November 26, 2007 Share Posted November 26, 2007 Oh, and yes, I've poked around a bit before starting this... I have an autistic son. He doesn't wander off much and responds when called (if he's in earshot), but the thought of equipping him and my wife & I with Rinos sounds appealing, if expensive. He's communcative and faily tech-savvy (uses the computer, plays some video games, can use the telephone, etc.), so I think could teach him to transmit his position so that we could find him. But surprisingly, Garmin's site didn't list the chipset, antenna, etc. for the Rino, what is the top model, 530? I'd like a comparison to the GPSMAP 60CSx (my current lust-after...) as far a geocaching and general outdoor use (hiking, biking, etc). I imagine it could be pretty clunky on my handlebars, but as long as it doesn't fall off, I don't reckon it'd be too bad... I could always just belt clip it, or even leave it in the luch pack in the back. As well, if we were so equipped, we could help others who have loved ones that wander off. Then, having the radio could be a huge plus. Cell phones don't work everywhere, when life could be on the line I say belts and suspenders! So anybody involved in SAR ops out there? I haven't seen much on the Rinos here... Thanks all, Tom Quote Link to comment
