Question about Garmin Rino 120 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Peer to peer problems

I have two Garmin Rino 120s. The main use for them is to help me train dogs in tracking. I want to be able to send a person out to lay a track, then send that track to the other rino. So that the K9 handler can make sure the dog is on the track the 1st person laid. Right now the issue is that one rino doesn't display the flag icon meaning it is able to send/receive peer to peer. As far as I can tell all the settings are the same on both. Is it just because of poor satellite signal? What can I do to fix it? Also once they are both able to transmit to one another what is the best way to follow a track laid by another rino? Thanks for any help.

Re: Peer to peer problems

There are time limits on how frequently you can send the gps coordinates.

My rino always says searching for sattellites

Once your rino travels more than 600 miles from original satellite fix you need to - Go to main page / satellites / options / new location.

Should take about 15 minutes to locate new satellites.

Garmin Rino 110 Posted by nightjar on Jun 29, 2008 My two 110's have same problem. With two new sets of different brand NiMh rechargeables the problem still exists. Both units get warm and flatten the...

Re : " Both units Garmin Rino 110, overheat and flatten the batteries within 2 hours"

That is a factory defect related to a bad contact inside the unit.

If you contact garmin and insist to talk to a supervisor (second line) you can have both Rinos replaced.

Ensure it is not a bad batteries problem first testing a replacement battery, both batteries may have deteriorated at same time.

Buy first a replacement battery at Garmin eTrek, Rino 110/120 NiMH Battery,

If that does not solve the problem call Garmin:

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'.

I am guessing that the unit is out of warranty. if this is the case go to to handle your repairs. while I have not personally sent anything to Garmin, I don't expect you to have any problems. Garmin is a highly recognized company for both thier products and for there service.

Garmin Rino 130 no Power

There first 2 main thing to check..... the off on switch.... and the fuse. Insie the radio there is a very small fuse.... its a surface mount component fuse... very small. That could be the problem. Also check the contacts on the radio..... if you have a way of connecting the correct voltage directly to the radios power terminals using jumpers I would definatly do it. Your most likly going to have to take the raio apart and and connect the battery to trace the power through it. The small fuse will be one of the first components after the positive power input. If this seems too much..... bring it to a radio shop... they can do all this quickly
