Garmin Rino 530HCx

Know exactly where you are at all times with Rino 530HCx and the precision of high-sensitivity GPS. This waterproof FRS/GMRS radio plus GPS navigator adds a barometric altimeter, electronic compass and NOAA weather radio in addition to the popular features of the Rino 520HCx — 5 watts of transmit power, a microSD card slot, brilliant color display and a high-sensitivity GPS receiver — so you’ll never be lost again. Other Rino 530HCx features: Barometric altimeter pinpoints your precise elevation. Electronic compass tells you what direction you’re headed, even when you're standing still. Bold color TFT display makes it easy to see and navigate to family or friends at an amusement park, lake or other outdoor group activity. microSD card slot accepts preloaded MapSource® data cards with detailed maps.
