Garmin Rino

Garmin Rino was "weak" because FCC would only let them broadcast buddy information on the FRS channels that only meant a two mile range. Garmin has now received permission from the FCC to broadcast buddy information on the GMRS channels which should boost that to the five mile range. I have used the buddy system on the FRS channels and it works great. You can upgrade the software on your current RINO or any other Garmin by checking out the Garmin site at This would allow buddy info to be sent on the GMRS channels.
