1407Re: [John Muir Trail] GPS's
- Jan 30, 2007I use the Garmin Rino (with 8mb) and have two, one for me, one for my
hiking partner who is always about 1 hour ahead of me on the trail. We use
it to talk to each other as well as see how far back/ahead we are from each
other. Once my partner, who does not know how to use the device that well,
got lost, and I was able to see where he went off trail from an hour away
from him, as I had the Sequoia National Park (HST) on the device and could
see where he was versus the trail. Cool.
This Garmin Rino is a combination walkie talkie (GRS/FRS frequencies) plus
a GPS and a GPS that can contain downloadable/purchased maps (such as
Sequoia National Park).
