Rino 110 stuck in one mode

When powered on the unit is stuck in one mode, and does not respond to pressing any buttons. The only way it can even be powered off is to remove the battery. Any suggestions to reset or something?

    I have the same problem, the rino 110 will blank out and display a flat horizontal line and will be frozen. I have to remove a battery and then put it back to restart. It will work for a minute or two then go into flat line mode again. Any solutions would be most welcome. Thanks.

There was a change to the WAAS satelite protocols. There is a new software download to fix the problem. The link is: http://www8.garmin.com/software/WebUpdater_241.exe

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.

I've got a pair of Garmin Rino 110 that we use when outdoors. Recently, with full batteries and clear skies in the desert, not surrounded by trees, mountains, buildings, etc... both of the Rino 110s...


  • That RINO should have no issues picking up satellite signals in the conditions you were in. If you were inside a building I may buy it but not in an open desert. Sounds like they are feeding you a line to me. I might try to get my money back on that one. One thing is for sure, you were in about the best conditions for using that unit. If it failed you then, it will more than likely fail you when your life may rely on it. It would seem that a different GPS/GMRS unit will be necessary to give you that security.

I have a Rhino 530hcx, the volume button is stuck...when the device powers on the device locks up....other than Garmin, where can I get this thing fixed?


I am not sure if you got this fixed but mine is doing something similiar except it is the button above the volume (aquire other users) I had to press the button repeatedly at different angles to get the button to unstick. I have had this happen a couple of times now and the whole unit freezes up. Poor design in my opinion as this unit has only seen the field 3 times.

Cant turn on backlight


Click the power button again - don't hold it down, just tap the on/off button. The backlight by default is shut off when the unit is powered up. To turn it on you press the power button again

Unit will not stay on. With new batteries installed, the unit turns on while power button is held down. It immediately turns off when power button is released. The batteries have never lasted long.


If using rechargeable batteries, your batteries are not getting charged. Check your charger, battery contacts and batteries. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser.

If using alkaline batteries, check placement of the batteries to be certain they are in the correct way, and also, clean the battery contacts.

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:

By reading a number of forums, I've found that there was a WAAS satelitte update (bug), that causes this foul up.
The only solution I've been able to arrive at is DISABLE the WAAS feature, as no Garmin Update/patch (for Rino120) has been made available.
To shutoff the WAAS feature press your [Page] button until you arrive at the "Main Menu"
go down until your on the "Setup"(hammer)
go in (by pressing in, on the directional button)
go down until your on the "System"(gears)
go in (by pressing in, on the directional button)
go down until your on WAAS, go in and select the Disabled
go up to the "X" (top right) press it, then you can [Page] button anywhere you want from there.

----------
Wonder what WAAS is?

Take care.

PS- Garmin if you read this....I would like to have my WAAS back, and since I registered for updates, back in 2005, why didn't I get an email from you telling me about this issue (when it happened and provide a solution - at the same time :: even a work around as I've posted here)

To make un full reset


Hello Rahooty,

There is no way to set the date and time becayse the system clock in your Garmin Rhino 120 should be updating based on the information it receives from the GPS satellites. The radio should auto locate itself within about five minutes of being turned on providing it has a clear view of the sky. Once it sucessfully auto locates the radio's clock and position should reset. There does not appear to be any other reset built into the device.

Try taking the batteries out for at least 5 minutes. Then, reinstall the batteries, turn the unit on, and give the unit 5-10 minutes to auto locate. If it doesn't, you may need to contact Garmin support for additional sevice.

Best Regards,
Ken
