My rhino 530 radio microphone does not seem to work, I can recieve and hear just fine, also it sends the peer to peer location to other rhinos. When you key up the radio it is received by the other radio but you can not hear anything other than maybe static, and has anyone sent anyhting in to Garmin to be repaired?

Re: Garmin 530 gps radio
I am guessing that the unit is out of warranty. if this is the case go tohttp://www8.garmin.com/support/outofwarranty.html 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.

Check the manual to see if you can set the PL tones (CTCSS) and set them to the same as the other radios. If you hold down the monitor button and you can hear the other radios this is most likely to be the fix.
It looks like Garmin offers complete factory overhaul for out of warranty Rhino120 units for $99. For complete details on how to get an RMA number and ship the unit to Garmin for repair go to their website at:
While it may also be possible to purchase parts from Garmin directly, I would recommend against attempting to repair the unit yourself unless you a lot of experience working with and repairing surface mount electronics devices.
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.
Programming the Garmin Rhino 120 using a PC requires an interface kit and may also require a RS-232 to USB converter cable or a 9-pin to 25-pin serial adapter depending on what interface is available on your computer.
The interface kit and cables are available on the manufacturer’s homepage for the product: www.garmin.com/products/rino120. Click on the “Accessories” tab and scroll down.
