Everything you need for a successful outing.
The Garmin Rino 655T GPS radio takes the incredible Rino 650 GPS radio, and manages to further increase its utility by adding a 5 megapixel camera. Like the 650, you'll find a user friendly worldwide basemap, with TOPO, BlueChart marine, CityNavigator, and Custom Maps overlay options. There's also the same radio and text functions, which allow you to communicate with other Rino users in the area. The NOAA weather radio is helpful for keeping track of developing storms, and the ability to link with a laptop to track multiple users give you the tools you need to ensure that your coordinated effort is ultimately a success. Don't leave the outcome to chance when you can have a tool this powerful by your side.
Tucked into the durable body is a 2.6 inch, glove friendly, backlit color screen, which is easily visible in all light conditions. In addition to the included worldwide basemap, you can load the Rino with TOPO 24k maps, BlueChart marine maps, and CityNavigator maps, and Custom Maps via the MicroSD port. If you still need more information, you can download BirdsEye satellite images, and overlay them on your map. Waypoints can be selected off of the mapping feature, or by importing them wirelessly from compatible devices. It's easy to save, modify, and index your routes for future trips. By downloading a geocaching .GPX file, you'll have access to hidden caches, for more options on your next outing. And you're able to select the profile of your trip, which helps you to organize your information between recreation, driving, boating, and training.
What sets the 655T apart from the 650 is the 5 megapixel camera. Not only is it useful for documenting the things you see along the way, but it GPS stamps each image, making it possible to find locations again, and share coordinates with other users. The included software allows you to track other Rino users in the area, making it easy to keep tabs on your friends. For even more tracking power, you can link it to your laptop, creating a base station that allows you to actively track multiple users at once. The radio feature makes it easy to stay in touch, and you also have the option of sending and receiving text messages to other Rino users as well. By using both GPS and GLONASS satellites, the Rino is able to determine your location 20% faster than GPS alone, and maintain it with greater precision. There's a built in NOAA weather radio to keep you alerted to storms rolling in, which can be the difference between a fun outing and a life-threatening situation. To ensure that your information is presented in a way that works for you, the dashboard is customizable with a 3d compass, barometric altimeter, and configurable data fields, among other tools.
The Garmin Rino 655T GPS is available in the color Black, and includes a USB cable, lithium ion battery back, AC charger, and user manual.
