Garmin is announcing three new Rino two-way radios this morning, the Garmin Rino 610, 650 and 655t. The Rino 650 and 655t GPS receivers feature a 2.6” touchscreen, the same size found on the Garmin Dakota series.
It’s unclear from the news release, but I’m assuming the 610 uses the same touchscreen. UPDATE: The Rino mini-site confirms that all three models are touch screens. All three models accept BirdsEye imagery and Garmin custom maps, and are expected to hit store shelves in the third quarter of 2011.
- Garmin Rino 610 – 1 watt FRS/GMRS radio, uses 4 AA batteries (rated at up to 18 hours), MSRP $349
- Garmin Rino 650 – 2.6 touchscreen, 5 watt FRS/GMRS radio, NOAA weather radio, wireless data sharing with compatible units, tri-axial compass, barometric altimeter, Li-Ion battery (rated up to 14 hours), optional AA battery pack (rated up to 18 hours), MSRP $499.99
- Garmin Rino 655t – adds a 5MP camera and pre-loaded 100K scale topo maps to the 650’s feature set, MSRP $599.99
UPDATE: Here’s the Garmin Rino mini-site.
