Garmin Rino 530 HCX Will not receive

Hi all--I have two Garmin 530 HCX GPS units. They both transmit, even to other non-Garmin units, and one receives from the other as awell as from other units, but my second 530 unit will not receive any radio transmissions or the location of the other radio on it's GPS map. Th eonly time it will receive is when I turn on the "monitor" status. The problem with that is it always has air noise and will not operate quietly. It should receive transmissions even if I do not place it in monitor mode.

Any suggestions?

If not, does anyone know how to clear the memory and set up of this unit to try to start clean?

Thanks!
Craig

Hello,

Try performing a factory reset.
Be sure to save your favorites, routes, and waypoints before doing the reset as these will be deleted.

The factory reset is done with unit OFF.
Press and hold PAGE button and ENTER button and while holding the buttons turn ON the unit.
Reset is complete.

Garmin Rino 530 radio noise even with squelch turned up. Hissing


Are you carrying a cell phone with you at the time? A cell phone can interfere with these units. You may want to call Garmin to ask questions on this problem. They are very helpful and professional.

Power Switch will not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on


When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.

Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.

Can i reboot my rino 530 hcx?


Yes - press the Page (lowest button on the left side), Enter (push in the center joy stick button) and Power (top) buttons at the same time. Then use the joy stick to select Yes indicating that you want to reset the unit.

I think I fried the lithium ion battery by having it plugged into the charger and the computer, hopefully covered under warranty....

Cant view map on gps


When you go past 4gigs on a micro SD card it becomes HC (high capacity I believe) and will not work with most Garmins. The 2 gig's the limit.
