The Garmin Rino 655t GPS/2-way radio brings together a GPS with TOPO maps, FRS/GMRS radio, altimeter, compass, weather radio and digital camera into 1 compact and easy-to-use device! With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver and quad helix antenna, Rino 655t quickly finds your position and maintains it- even in heavy cover. Bright and colorful touch screen makes it easy to view maps and data and navigate through the Rino 655t's functions. Comes preloaded with TOPO 100K maps with full coverage of the United States; easily add 24K TOPO and City Navigator(R) maps (sold separately) with the microSD card slot. Supports BirdsEye(TM) satellite imagery (subscription required) that lets you download satellite images and integrate them with your maps. Rino 655t is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device. Position Reporting capability lets you send your exact location to other Rino users so they can see it on their map page. FRS/GMRS 2-way radio with improved audio performance makes it easy to communicate with any other FRS/GMRS radios. 2-way radio features 22 channels, 121 squelch codes, 5 watts transmitting power on GMRS, voice activation and vibration alerts. Send unit-to-unit text messages to other Rino users and share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin handheld devices. Barometric altimeter and Tilt-compensated, 3-axis electronic compass let you get your altitude and bearings without having to hold the unit level. Capture the highlights of your outings with the built-in 5-megapixel autofocus camera; each photo is automatically geotagged with the location of where it was taken. NOAA weather radio helps you avoid hazardous weather; it supports Specific Area Message Encoding, which allows you to see National Weather Service warnings on the screen.
The Garmin Rino 655T GPS radio takes the incredible Rino 650 GPS radio, and manages to further increase its utility by adding a 5 megapixel camera. Like the 650, you'll find a user friendly worldwide basemap, with TOPO, BlueChart marine, CityNavigator, and Custom Maps overlay options. There's also the same radio and text functions, which allow you to communicate with other Rino users in the area. The NO weather radio is helpful for keeping track of developing storms, and the ability to link with a laptop to track multiple users give you the tools you need to ensure that your coordinated effort is ultimately a success. Don't leave the outcome to chance when you can have a tool this powerful by your side.Tucked into the durable body is a 2.6 inch, glove friendly, backlit color screen, which is easily visible in all light conditions. In addition to the included worldwide basemap, you can load the Rino with TOPO 24k maps, BlueChart marine maps, and CityNavigator maps, and Custom Maps via the MicroSD port. If you still need more information, you can download BirdsEye satellite images, and overlay them on your map. Waypoints can be selected off of the mapping feature, or by importing them wirelessly from compatible devices. It's easy to save, modify, and index your routes for future trips. By downloading a geocaching .GPX file, you'll have access to hidden caches, for more options on your next outing. And you're able to select the profile of your trip, which helps you to organize your information between recreation, driving, boating, and training. What sets the 655T apart from the 650 is the 5 megapixel camera. Not only is it useful for documenting the things you see along the way, but it GPS stamps each image, making it possible to find locations again, and share coordinates with other users. The included software allows you to track other Rino users in the area, making it easy to keep tabs on your friends. For even more tracking power, you can link it to your lap...
