Stay in Touch
With plenty of transmit power, Rino 650 also lets you send unit-to-unit text messages to other Rino users in your area â€“ 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.
View Weather Watches and Warnings
For added safety, Rino 650 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 BaseCampâ„¢, 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 itâ€™s Garmin GPS-based, safer, more effective search and rescue operations are in your control, even where Internet and cell phone service isnâ€™t.
