With the navigational capabilities of a 12-parallel-channel GPS and the reliable communication power of a 22-channel GMRS/FRS radio, this 100% waterproof GPS/radio units let you travel anywhere with complete confidence. Channels 1-7 are FRS/GMRS, 8-14 are FRS and 15-22 are GMRS for a wide range of communication options. Each channel has 38 squelch codes for semiprivate conversation. The patent-pending peer-to-peer positioning “beams” your location to another Rino user. The FCC allows the use of GMRS channels for this Garmin-exclusive feature, which shows the receiving party the distance and bearing from your position to theirs. Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion pack with 14 hours of run time (included) or optional AA battery pack (not included).
