My negative opinions is about the computer to unit cord.. It is a old style nine pin serial port, but the more expensive model have the USB to unit cord. Can't they just update the lineup so all of us have the newer connection. Another issue is the software.. All the new maps are not compatible with the RINO 120, but it is compatible with the new RINO 520. Yes, I know they still sell the software that is compatible with the RINO 120, but it isn't updated since 2000, and I would hate to find out the road is no longer there... That kind of thing...
So overall, it is a good product, just that it needs some updating...
I tested the radios in thick woods with gradual sloping hills. I was able to get about one-half mile clear communications between the two radios. The peer to peer position reporting feature worked perfectly, as well as the GPS features.
The advertised "up to 5 mile range" etc. you see on radios like these only happens under perfect conditions which nobody is likely to ever encounter. Knowing this, I wasn't disappointed. The half mile range will do fine for my use.
I was a bit disappointed with the lack of detail in the Topo map software, but it is still servicable.
All in all, a good product.
