Product Description

Edition: 655t - US map & topographic

With a 5 W FRS/GMRS radio, 2.6" glove-friendly color touchscreen GPS with preloaded TOPO 100K maps, barometric altimeter, 3-axis electronic compass, NOAA weather radio and 5-megapixel camera, Rino 655t is a jack-of-all-trades.

Pinpoint Your Position

With its high-sensitivity GPS receiver and quad helix antenna, Rino 655t quickly finds your position and maintains it – even in heavy cover. Plus, a built-in barometric altimeter and 3-axis compass make it easy to get your bearings without the need to hold it level.

See Your Surroundings

Rino minisite

The device comes preloaded with TOPO 100K maps, which includes coverage of the full U.S. Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. With its microSD™ card slot, Rino 655t lets you load TOPO U.S. 24K maps and hit the trail or plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water. The device also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, Rino 655t is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

Find Your Friends

Rino 655t’s unique Position Reporting capability lets you send your exact location to other Rino users so they can see it on their map page. Plus, improved audio performance means it’s easy to communicate with any other conventional FRS/GMRS radio in the area. It can be useful in an emergency, or just a handy way to keep tabs on your hunting party, hiking partner, family or friends.

Stay in Touch

With plenty of transmit power, Rino 655t also lets you send unit-to-unit text messages to other Rino users in your area – it's ideal for loud or windy conditions, or just when you don't want to disturb the wildlife. It also lets you share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin handheld devices.

Document Your Journey

With Rino 655t’s built-in 5-megapixel autofocus camera, you'll be able to capture the highlights of your outings. Each photo is automatically geotagged with the location of where it was taken, allowing you – or those you share your photos with – to easily navigate back to that spot in the future.

View Weather Watches and Warnings

For added safety, Rino 655t features a built-in NOAA weather radio that can help you avoid hazardous weather. The radio supports Specific Area Message Encoding, which allows you to see National Weather Service warnings and watches displayed county-by-county on the map screen.

Plan Your Next Trip

Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp™, software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.

Turn Your Computer Into a Base Station

The all-new BaseStation lets you turn your laptop (loaded with BaseCamp) into a field command center for tracking multiple Rino units. View real-time GPS information on the larger display of your computer with Rino serving as a router/antenna. And because it’s Garmin GPS-based, safer, more effective search and rescue operations are in your control, even where Internet and cell phone service isn’t.

When you are in the field it is very easy to use.
Bruce Fyfe
It is however not as crisp as the 530hcx and when compared to the 530hcx I found it to have a bit less resolution in almost all lighting conditions and not as bright.
Greg B.
Overall it is a great device and has a well thought out marriage of a strong radio to a tracking GPS.

Edition: 655t - US map & topographic Verified Purchase
Wanted to give a quick list of thoughts on the new Rino 655t vs the 530hcx. I was an avid 530hcx user, I probably have 4000 hours using the device on river trips, Burning Man, hunting, sailing, snowboarding, and traveling. The ability to locate another person without them having to make any action is an invaluable feature of a 2-way radio. Although the radio was not as powerful as some consumer radios (like the Motorola distance DPS) the polling feature and the ability to leave my old GPS at home was well worth it. The 530hcx however did have its problems. Plenty of issues like antenna rubber separating from the unit and complicated menus/software were drawbacks.

When I caught wind of the 655t being released I picked up one up just in time for Burning Man in August. I used it 16 hours a day trying to learn the unit inside and out. I then took it camping in September and used it biking and hiking other days. After that I did an hour long test of functions with other 530hcx radios about 2 miles away. Here are some of my observations:

I did my comparison talking 655t to 530hcx and then 530hcx to 530hcx.
Despite the new labeling, the radio can transmit about the same distance. Sometimes the 530x was better, sometimes the 655t as it had more had to do with the position of the radio in the users hand than the unit itself. This was the same while receiving and transmitting. Not in either way was the 655t superior when talking and when it came to polling another 530hcx I found the 530hcx to be superior by a wide margin. I could have 10 minutes of testing go by with the 530 updating at every possible opportunity and the 655t never getting a single hit. I am not sure if similar units talk better with each other or whether the 530 is just far superior.

Edition: 650 - US map
I recently bought a Garmin 650 and was quickly disappointed. I was told and the literature verified that the new 650 had all the old features of the 530HCX or 530 plus additional features. One of the main reasons I purchased this product was that it would scramble the audio and location with the 655T as well as other Rhino's. This turned out to be not true. The 655T can not scramble at all and the 650 can only scramble audio. When the software is updated it will not be able to scramble at all. Also neither has the ability to tell the temperature like the 530's do. If I would of known this before hand I would of purchased the 530HCX.

Edition: 650 - US map Verified Purchase
I dropped my Rino 530Hcx too many times, I'm really not all that gentle with my equipment. I thought I'd upgrade but was disappointed overall. I do a lot of fishing and occasional hiking around Juneau, Alaska, plus I like to take a gps unit with me when I travel. My 9 year old Rino 120 still works great, but does not have as many features such as tide tables, sensitive antennae, etc.

Larger color screen is nice, as is the ability to look at pictures. The extra sensitive antennae on the newer generation of GPS units (both 530Hcx and 650) works great even under the canopy of Juneau, Alaska's rainforest. The reception on the radio is much improved with this model.

I wish this unit would come with a manual, but I guess that must be one of the drawbacks of the newer generation of electronics. A .pdf of the manual can be found on-line with the help of Google.

A minor complaint is navigation through the touch screen menus. The buttons on my Rino 530Hcx allowed for faster navigation. This means more time navigating through the screens when you want to see where you are, turn off the NOAA weather station (once through is sufficient), check barometer, etc. My Rino 120 and 530 Hcx were much easier to toggle the screens even if they had more buttons.

My biggest complaint is that it would not upload Garmin maps. Because they were purchased 'too long ago' (new just over two years ago) the people at Garmin indicated that the only option I had was to buy new maps. One of the primary purposes of this purchase was to be able to find fishing spots. My other objective is to know where I am when I hike. Without the ability to upload my Bluechart and Topo maps, I decided I might as well go back to the Rino 120 for now.

I purchased the Rino because Garmin is a name brand and it provided GPS, show me where other users are, FMS radio services etc.

However, the battery contacts are fully exposed and in the saltwater environment of South Carolina where I attempted to use it, the battery routinely shorted. I contacted Garmin, told them of the problem... after working my way up the chain of command, a manager offered to exchange this non-waterproof Rino for another model.

Yet - he never responded to emails nor phone calls.

Use this unit only on freshwater lakes of Kansas. It is NOT WATERPROOF on the ocean or brackish waters where water is a conductor across the re-charging terminals.

Edition: 610 - US map Verified Purchase
I purchased the Garmin Rino 610 series GPS/handheld radio combo. This unit is a great idea, and as far as hardware goes on this unit, so far it's been great. The range of the radio is excellent. The GPS will find exactly where you are quickly and accurately. The ability to let others in your party know where you are using a data burst in the radio is the reason I purchased this item. Software for the Rino, on the other hand, is a bit of a joke. Garmin has no real competition in this arena, and it shows. Don't be fooled that once you've purchased the Rino your costs are finished. The map software that's included on the Rino is not for the backcountry user, and all but requires that you purchase additional software for >$100 (don't purchase this software at Garmin.com, other retailers have it for 20% cheaper)(apparently you can add layers from other topo maps and Garmin allows and encourages this, but certainly does not show you how to do it). Good luck finding out if you need the "100K" or "24K" maps, as there is little guidance directing your purchase based on what your expected needs will be (the 24k is much more detailed and useful for the hiker or hunter. I'm not sure if you would be better off buying the 100K or just using the crap that comes with the unit). Also pay attention as to what media you have to receive your maps on. Most Rino users have to purchase the DVD and install from a computer, whereas other Garmin units can use the MicroSD (again, not much guidance from Garmin here). To add insult to injury in having to spend hours after your Rino purchase figuring out what you need to do to get the right maps, once you buy the Garmin map software, there are no instructions on the DVD on how to install the software on your Rino. HUGE PITA.Read more ›
