Question about Garmin Rino 120 2-Way Radio

LED does not work

I dropped the Rino 120 and the screen now only turns a very dark blue but has no images. the radio other seems to work other than that. When I turn off the unit the screen goes back to the off color, and when turned back on only turns solid dark blue.

    When you say replacement do you mean just the LED or the enire unit?

You have damaged the screen and it will likely need replacement. there is one other possibility... you may have loosened a connector inside the radio... tap it gently with your finger to see if there are any changes in the display

    hate to say it... that becomes an issue with you... it may very well be cheaper to replace the unit (sad as that sounds) then repairing it. electronic items just don't take kindly to being dropped.... i had a customer bring me a laptop once that fell off his car... on the freeway.

How come the garmin 120 radio isn't compatible with standard Motorola walkie talkies


When programmed to the same frequency and code settings the Garin Rino 120 should match the Motorola TalkAbout line of radios. They are all using the same UHF FRS/GMRS frequencies. Here is a link to the Garmin user guide where you will find the frequency charts on pgs. 100-102: http://www.uky.edu/~jmlhot2/courses/for480/Rino120_OwnersManual.pdf
Motorola TalkAbout user guides can be found at: http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp
Best regards.

Keyboard locked out unlock keyboard


Google the instructions for the Rino model you own. On mine, once you turn it on, you press and hold the power button and it unlocks.

Screen goes blank except a thin line


There is a firmware upgrade from Garmin that appears to address this problem for units still running Version 3.2 or earlier. If your problem only occurs when WAAS is enabled, you might try upgrading. To find what firmware version you have, from the main menu: Setup, System, then select the (options) icon on the top row, to the left of the 'X'.

Rino 120 Send note


This sounds like the new firmware version may not work on the
older model.

The best solution would be to contact Garmin
