Amazon.com Product Description

The the most feature-rich device in the Rino family, Garmin's Rino 130 (bilingual edition) 2-way FRS/GMRS radio and GPS receiver comes fully loaded with an electronic compass, a barometric sensor, a weather receiver for 7 NOAA weather channels, and 24 MB of internal memory for downloading and storing MapSource detail--including data from products like U.S. Topo 24K, U.S. Topo, Recreational Lakes, BlueChart, and MetroGuide (MapSource products sold separately). The Rino 130 is also outfitted with a marine-point database and a basemap of North and South America. The database includes nautical navaids for North and South America. The Americas Highway basemap includes the United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and Central and South America, and covers an area from W180 to W30 Longitude and S60 to N75 Latitude. Also included is a high-level worldwide map with political boundaries and major cities. Among many other included elements are oceans, rivers, and lakes (greater than 30 square miles), principal cities and many smaller cities and towns, major interstates and principal highways, and political boundaries (state and international borders). The Rino 130 also offers 10,000 tracklogs versus 2,048 with the Rino 120. The 130 also comes ready with amassive 24 MB of memory unlike the Rino 120 with 8MB. Lastly the 130 shines with the very useful electronic compass, altimeter, glide ratio, glide ratio to destination, and vertical speed to destination features that the Rino 120 lacks.

Integration has its advantages: the Rino 130 sends and receives GPS locations using FRS channels and shows them on the map. The GPS device is a 12-channel, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver. WAAS, which stands for Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), is the global-positioning-system of choice for mariners. The handheld's built-in electronic compass give a heading while you're standing still, and its barometric altimeter provides accurate elevation and pressure readings to help you identify and analyze weather conditions.

The Rino 130 also provides two-way radio communication with a transmission range of up to two miles using FRS channels and up to five miles with GMRS (be aware that use of GMRS requires an FCC license). The integration of two-way radio and GPS lets you transmit your position with a simple button press, so others can easily navigate to your position. The Rino 130 also has a polling feature so you can manually request GPS location information from other Rino units.

You get 14 FRS channels, 8 GMRS channels, and 8 GMRS repeater channels, as well as 38 sub-audible squelch codes per transmission channel for semi-private radio communications.

The unit's ergonomic design grants single-handed operation, with its Call, Page mode, and Press-To-Talk (PTT) buttons mounted on the side, Power/Backlighting button on top, Volume and Zoom buttons on front, and a Thumb Stick positioned in the center. The thumb stick allows channel selection and volume adjustment in FRS/GMRS mode, as well as quick map panning, enter, and selection functions in GPS mode.

Other features include a backlit display (160 x 160 pixels), external voice activation (VOX), waterproof construction to IPX-7 standards (immersible in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes), storage for up to 500 waypoints with graphic identification and 20 reversible routes, 10,000 trackpoints and up to 20 saved tracks to retrace your path or a companion's path via the location-reporting feature, trip computer with speed tracking, sunrise/sunset read out, trip time, and trip distance, and multiple grid formats including MGRS and Loran TD. The Rino 130 even sends and receives short text notes for quiet communication.

The Rino 130 has a battery life of 14 hours (typical use) on 3 AA alkaline batteries (not included).

The WAAS difference
  • 100 meters: Accuracy of the original GPS system, which was subject to accuracy degradation under the government-imposed Selective Availability (SA) program.
  • 15 meters: Typical GPS position accuracy without SA.
  • 3-5 meters: Typical differential GPS (DGPS) position accuracy.
  • Less than 3 meters: Typical WAAS position accuracy.
WAAS is a system of satellites and ground stations that provide GPS signal corrections, giving you even better position accuracy. How much better? Try an average of up to five times better. A WAAS-capable receiver can give you a position accuracy of better than three meters 95 percent of the time. And you don't have to purchase additional receiving equipment or pay service fees to utilize WAAS.

How it Works
WAAS consists of approximately 25 ground reference stations positioned across the United States that monitor GPS satellite data. Two master stations, located on either coast, collect data from the reference stations and create a GPS correction message. This correction accounts for GPS satellite orbit and clock drift plus signal delays caused by the atmosphere and ionosphere. The corrected differential message is then broadcast through one of two geostationary satellites, or satellites with a fixed position over the equator. The information is compatible with the basic GPS signal structure, which means any WAAS-enabled GPS receiver can read the signal.

Who benefits from WAAS?
Currently, WAAS satellite coverage is only available in North America. There are no ground reference stations in South America, so even though GPS users there can receive WAAS, the signal has not been corrected and thus would not improve the accuracy of their unit. For some users in the U.S., the position of the satellites over the equator makes it difficult to receive the signals when trees or mountains obstruct the view of the horizon. WAAS signal reception is ideal for open land and marine applications. WAAS provides extended coverage both inland and offshore compared to the land-based DGPS (differential GPS) system. Another benefit of WAAS is that it does not require additional receiving equipment, while DGPS does.

If you regularly drive in areas where a GPS signal is intermittent, such as urban environments with tall buildings or in mountainous terrain, Garmin's StreetPilot 2650 offers extensive map coverage and dead reckoning. This means that once you have the unit installed by an authorized Garmin installer, you'll continue to get navigation guidance even if you lose GPS reception.

With the StreetPilot 2650's touchscreen and remote control, entering and retrieving information has never been easier. Perfect for both business and vacation, it's turn-by-turn routing and voice prompts get you where you're going accurately and safely. It's fast processor means quick route calculations and map redraws. The 2650 also features a large, easy-to-read screen, built-in maps, and everything needed to download additional map detail and look up points of interest and addresses in seconds. Select maps and transfer data directly to the unit through a USB connection and onto a standard CompactFlash memory card (supplied).

If you're tired of backseat drivers helping you guess your way through unfamiliar parts of town, then you may want to consider something that always knows exactly where it's at and where you should go--the StreetPilot GPS from Garmin. The StreetPilot uses satellite global positioning technology in combination with electronic maps to help you pinpoint your current position and navigate to where you want to go. The StreetPilot ships with a set of built-in electronic maps that show major roadways, airports, coastlines, lakes, and rivers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. You can separately purchase detailed MetroGuide electronic maps for metropolitan areas in the U.S. MetroGuide maps extend the StreetPilot's functionality by helping you find addresses, restaurants, and other points of interest by telling you in real time how to get there (turn right, turn left, etc.). It's best to mount the StreetPilot on your car dashboard, because juggling it and your steering wheel at the same time could be hazardous. Includes a mounting bracket, six AA batteries, and ordering information for an optional cigarette lighter power adapter, a remote antenna, and MetroGuide cartridges. --Harry C. Edwards ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy gadget in the big city.
The advantage of this GPS model versus the less expensive versions is that it gives you full street information for most large cities in the USA. Includes restaraunts, shopping, motels, gas stations, museums, etc.

The built-in model from Magellan is very nice, but built-in. You can't take it with you in a rental car, or drive somewhere with a friend.

Even after living in the Dallas area for seven years, I still only "know" a small area around home and work. I found it very useful when I was sent to a specialist outside of my area. Not only was I able to find the address easily, but I was also able to work out the route and time estimate before I left home. END

4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of features
We used the StreetPilot driving from Houston, Texas to the mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico and were impressed with its features and flexibility. Simple to start up, easy to read but takes practice to learn all the options and there are many options.

Although there is not enough detail in the maps to be really useful, it does provide a ton of information besides just maps and latitude and longitude. For example, time of day, altitude, miles per hour, avg mph, distance traveled, time traveled, time to destination, a compass, several alarm systems and optional personal way points. It is compact and portable as well as easy to read. If you are the passenger (definitly not as the driver), the StreetPilot can be as addictive as a computer game.

A one star deduction since with the GPS prices falling as they are, this one seems a tad expensive especially since the useful optional cartridges are a hundred bucks a pop. It would be nice if the manufacturer included the power adapter and one cartridge in this price.

Save yourself the humiliation of having to stop and ask directions on your next lengthy road trip: invest in Garmin's eMap. The eMap GPS receiver will give you fairly accurate mapping information, directions, and even help you manage and track your journeys.

For those unfamiliar with the term, GPS (global positioning system) involves 24 satellites that circle the planet. At any given time, the eMap makes contact with at least three of them to determine everything from speed to location. So, as long as you're motoring around the great outdoors, you'll be in the know.

It features a detailed 120 x 160 pixel display, backlighting for nighttime navigating, and easily navigable controls. With the eMap's simple cursor control, you should be up and running with almost no effort. Considering this unit only weighs 6.7 ounces, it could easily be the best roadside companion on long drives--or local trips if you're that directionally challenged.

If you're going to do some serious pioneering, you're also in for a good deal of choices. You can catalog 500 waypoints, 2,000 log points, and 10 saved tracks. But there is a downside to all this power in the palm of your hand: Garmin supplies you with only basic mappings of major roadways and intersections. If you're looking for city-street maps or more detailed coverage, get the checkbooks ready. Garmin sells optional MapSource CD-ROMs that will provide enormous amounts of map data, showing streets, alleys, and even restaurants. A series of different Map CD-ROMs are available and cost, on average, about $170. When all is said and done, with hidden costs, you can expect to spend upwards of $350 to get everything you'd need out of the eMap. --Dave Thomas

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Lightweight
  • Large, crisp display
  • Room for extra memory cartridges
  • Map data fed by satellite good for North America and parts of Europe

Cons:

  • Detailed maps are expensive
  • Batteries last only about 10 to 12 hours

3-0 out of 5 stars The GPS money pit
I've been using this unit for a few weeks now and it never fails to amaze me with it's capabilities even if the learning curve for it is a bit steep (an instructional video is available for an additional charge). I'm sure there are features I'll never use due to its complexity.

The problem I have is that it comes with nothing. If you want to actually be able to use the unit, you've got to go back to Garmin and buy additional accessories and guess what, ... their all proprietary so they can and do charge whatever they feel like. Things like the computer/power adapter and a memory card should have been included for the price they're asking for the unit. The memory sticks... and the USB adapter are outrageously priced. Yeah, that's right, the computer/power adapter isn't even USB, you have to buy both or your stuck with the glacial speed of serial. To further illustrate, to replace the little piece of plastic that covers the batteries, it'll cost you nearly $7!

Basically, they put a pretty good little GPS on the market as bait to lock you into their brand and sell, at ridiculous prices, accessories that should have come with it anyways. I would give the unit by itself 4 stars but for Garmin's complete lack of integrity.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great piece of equipment
I am very happy with my unit. I took it on a 6000 mile trip and was delighted with its performance. A couple of negative comments. I agree that the manual is user unfriendly. I had to figure out most of the features myself, and some did not become evident until I was on the road. Secondly, the many features seem to be a closely guarded secret. I defy anyone to tell me the difference between the $189 base model and the delux $299 model. Amazon says the delux model includes a computer cord and an 8 meg memory chip. It seems a little overpriced. Have not been able to get any info on availability or prices for car plug adapters, 16 meg cards, down loadable maps, etc. Finally, don't take this unit along if you are driving alone! It is so fantastic, its hard to keep your eye on the road. I found the map is constantly being updated as you cruise down the interstate. I recommend it highly for people who take long trips on the interstate system. It has only scant info on local roads.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic System with tons of available accessories
I've owned this unit for a couple of months now. I didn't want to write a review without having used it. It works GREAT. There are some issues, but they are readilly worked around.

First issue is price. For the base unit, the price is quite reasonable. However, as another reviewer mentioned, in order to really make it work right, you really do need some accessories. Garmin accessories surely seem over priced. In order to use this on the road, I purchased a Dash-Mount, and a power cable/pc serial cable. I picked up both of these for less than 40.00 through aftermarket suppliers.

It didn't take me long to realize that I needed some extra software to download more detailed maps to the GPS base unit. MetroGuide from Mapsource is available through aftermarket distributors for under 75.00. It's somewhat tedious to download the individual regions, but well worth the effort. Additionally, with the PC cable, it interacts seamlessly with my laptop running either Metro Guide or Microsoft Streets and Trips (under 40.00). Of course streets and trips does not download to the GPS, but the GPS will plot its position in S&T, so if you can use the laptop, it works fine.

Off road/camping is a different issue. I already own most of the paper maps for where I plan on going, and the GPS grids make it impossible to get lost. This doesn't even take into account the way it interacts with USAPHOTOMAPS (usaphotomaps.com). This receiver will plot my position using aerial photography available free and online.

This is a great unit, with a readilly accessible manual from GARMIN, scads of available accessories through after-market dealers (gilsson.com), integration with software from Mapsource, Microsoft, USA photmaps, etc. A great unit that does everything I could ask for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Off the beaten track--with confidence!
Late this summer, I was driving a rented minivan from Mendocino, CA, south to the Bay area. It's about 180 miles. I was with three other adults and three children. Instead of taking the recommended RT 128 southeast to RT 101 and south to the Bay area, we decided to take a "shorter" route, due east on Lake Road to RT 20 to RT 101, then south. Well, the road we chose went through deep redwood forests. More often then not, we could not see the sky. There were times when the road was no longer paved, at times rutted. It was so narrow that for most of the way it would have been impossible for two vehicles to pass (fortunately, no vehicles came our way). The road often snaked around tree trunks as large as 10 feet in diameter.

This road was on both our AAA map and GPS (I had preloaded the corresponding map onto my 64mb data card from the MetroGuide CD). The going was very slow, and our "shorter" route soon became the "longer" route. We were too far along to turn around. My wife, seated in the back held the portable phone ready to call for assistance. I asked all to wait, to put her trust in the GPS. After another half hour, we came to a three-road junction--all narrow and un-maintained. One of the roads was not on the AAA map. Intuitively, it looked like the least likely road. But the GPS indicated this road would take us to the RT 20. We took it, and before you knew it, arrived at the conventional RT 20. The GPS saved the day.

One of the greatest attributes of a GPS is that it allows you to explore, to go where you normally would not, and discover new vistas. Obviously, my eMap proved that.

Besides this general function, there are several specific features I like about the eMap. These include its portability and its ergonomic design. The eMap has a relatively large display (which can be backlit) and it is light, just over 6 oz. When walking with this unit in a town or on a trail, I appreciate being able to hold and control the unit with one hand while always having the display in view. This is a result of the control buttons being below the screen.

The eMap is compatible with Garmin's downloadable MapSource CDs. These include U.S. Roads and Recreation, WorldMap, U.S. Topo, and MetroGuide U.S.A. With the MapGuide U.S.A. CD, the eMap can look up addresses and telephone numbers for nearby services and points of interest. I like being able find a particular restaurant or street address by entering it under the find feature, then tracking it. An arrow will point in the right direction and distance will be displayed.

There are many available accessories, several which I recommend. I needed a larger data card. The unit comes with an 8mb card which will give you one region. This is okay if you will be using it in a limited radius. If you go elsewhere, you'll need to load new data using a serial cable (another accessory). It is time consuming, which may suggest your getting another accessory, the Garmin's USB data programmer. I have a 64mb card which captures from Massachusetts to Maryland (8 regions). Using the serial cable took over two hours to load the data. Using the programmer took about four minutes.

I definitely recommend this unit. Its portability, versatility, its adjustable detail, and its accuracy give you the confidence to venture places without getting lost. One suggestion though--don't give up the paper map. Use it to provide the fuller perspective a portable GPS lacks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic!
I love the Garmin eMap. It does everything I ever wanted in a GPS. You can even get software downloads from Garmin's web site. There are many accessories available, and you will probably want them all! The complete outfit is kind of pricey. If you want to upload maps you will need a separate data card, you cannot load maps into the stock unit. Also, it eats a TON of batteries! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing package!Try it for yourself
I have just used the product for 14 days.I can not describe how happy I am with the performance of this tiny little gadget.First of all, for all those people complaining about bluetooth or wi-fi connectivity, I think this pocket PC is more focused on being a GPS/Navigation system and all the additional stuff should be considered a bonus.Hands down, pricewise this is one of the top navigational systems out there.My brother bought the Microsoft Streets and Trips USB add-on which he attaches to his laptop, and I bought this Garmin unit.Trust me, this GPS is 10 times better, its all in one package, comes with EVERYTHING you would need to get set and get going.

Highlights:
-Points of interests: finds atms, movie theatres, restaurants (really really handy when you're out with family and need to drive to another restaurant)
-Integrated: comes with everything you need to be mobile; dashboard kit, windshield mount, desktop charger, etc
-great software: the MapSource is excellent.
-great design, good price compared to its GPS competition.
-voice prompts work great when you are driving and its a loud clear speaker voice telling you exactly where to turn.If you miss a turn, it automatically recalculates and tell you where to turn next.basically, its really really hard to get lost if you have this thing.This product will save you money and time if you are driving in inner-cities and have a hard time with directions (so true for me driving around NYC metro area especially long island)

If we were to compare it within the GPS/Navigation category, this product takes the hat, no doubt about it.Compared to the $700 magellan unit, this is slicker, easier to set up AND did i forget to mention its a full fledged pocket PC with MS Windows Mobile Edition OS.

Cons:
only comes with 64 mb of storage.Which isn't bad, and it will load up maps of almost an entire state.I live in Queens, and I'm able to load up NYC and half of long island for about 20 megs.So i guess its not really a con.

If you need an excellent GPS system, this is it.Just think of the pocket PC functions as a free additional bonus.

i have never written a review in my life but after using this product, I was so satisfied that I told all my friends to get it instead of getting a $2k navigational system installed and now i'm writing a review to tell others what they MUST try for themselves.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impression - mixed results
Setup was easy, I got the 1 gig SD card and loaded half the US, and still have 400 meg available for mp3, jpeg, other files.This is my first GPS, first PDA, and I've had it a week, so this is a preliminary review:

Pros:
pocket size
accessories all included
can see screen easily in daylight
PDA processor is fast
Voice recorder is cool
jacks for external antenna and speaker

Cons:
Long time to acquire satellites
Lost satellites several times
Manual is just ok
HAVE to buy the SD card ($100)

The speaker on the unit is not loud enough for navigation if there is any background noise, but the speaker on the power adapter is plenty good, plus there's an output jack for external speaker if needed.

I have a Toyota Tacoma truck, and lose signal a lot - may need the external antenna.If I put the unit all the way forward on the dash it acquires satellites in a minute, but on the windshield mount it can take 10 minutes.It also seems to take longer if the car is moving, so I just wait a minute before taking off.

The manual was aggravating - it comes with a quick setup guide that was easy and accurate, and an application guide for the navigator software, but the general instruction manual is on CD only - no paper copy!I had to print the 88-page pdf.

The unit froze once - had to reset, so I was glad to read the other reviews about the updates available from Garmin.

Screen resolution is half what other PDA's are, and I was concerned about that, but I really can't tell any difference - pictures look great, videos too, and the maps look like Magellan or any other.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product!Almost a home run, but not quite...
I have had about a week to use the M5. My first impression is WOW.This IS my first GPS and also my first PDA, so take my review for what it's worth.I would love to give this product 5 stars, but I will get right to the point of why I can't do it.

CONS :
No 802.11b/g - Not a huge deal if you don't mind plugging a bluetooth USB adapter in your PC, but honestly it is a little annoying that I can't connect right up to my 802.11g network out of the box.There are SD/MMC 802.11b cards available that are a option, but I have not ordered one yet.

GPS non-responsive - (see *Edit* at bottom of this review) As one other reviewer also noted, I also had a GPS problem where it acted like it was looking for the satellites, but couldn't see any of them.This was outside, and not indoors.I pushed the reset button, and GPS fired up just fine.As with the other reviewer, I also haven't had this problem reoccur after about a week of using it.The initial problem was about an hour after I took it out of the box. Since then I have used it a good 20+ times without any problems.I will report back if this problem comes back!

The leather flip case(?) - It is a little lame, and offers no protection except for maybe screen...and even that's a stretch.

PROS -
Wow, I opened the box, and it was very complete. A nice windshield suction mount, cig adapter with speaker and the other 'standard' PDA items (cradle, USB cable, travel A/C adapter, etc).

It's a nice size, not to bulky.The battery seems to perform as expected.I don't have any exact #'s, but from what I could tell it was at least 4 hours with some GPS usage.

One thing I would like to comment on is the 'cost'.A lot of reviews elsewhere talked about how expensive this device is.Yes, it's not cheap, but try buying a comparable PDA and a GPS add-on. You'll be close to, if not higher than what you would pay for this fully integrated PDA/GPS.

I have taken one trip (74 miles each way).It did a pretty good job getting me to the destination.I did notice that it was a little slow to recalculate the route if you miss a turn (5-10 seconds on average). Not a huge deal, but could be a problem in inner-city driving. It also did a random "Make U-Turn" in the intersection I was turning at. I believe the intersection came up later than the GPS/mapping software was expecting. The estimated time of arrival is nice, and right on target!

GPS performance : The GPS picks up the satellites fine in my car.My house (2 story) it's fine on the second floor, but the first floor it does not pick up the satellites unless I move over to a window.

Storage - I don't own a memory card yet, but even with the built-in memory I was able to get most of middle-TN and North Atlanta.I hear a 2GB memory card will hold all of the US, and 1GB will hold over half the US.I would say that is about right.

That's about all I can think of at this time. I will report back in a few weeks with an update.At this point I am very pleased.

Edit 4/28/05 - I did have one additional lockup of the unit that required a 'reset', so I went to the Garmin website and found out that there was a new firmware revision. I loaded the firmware and so far the unit seems to be performing perfectly.So, for those who are having GPS lockup problems, download the firmware revision.Garmin states that the firmware fixes several lockup issues.

5-0 out of 5 stars A killer product
The Garmin ique m5 pocketpc/gps is a gadget lover's dream come
true. The price of a decent pocket pc from dell or hp would
easily run to $500. For $100 more than the price of a standard
pocket pc you get a WAAS enabled gps with bluetooth support.

The bundled software includes garmin map software for entire
united states and Microsoft outlook 2002.
Setup was easy. I was able to install the Map source software
without any problems. Garmin provides a usb based sync cable and
cradle. Since i own a Garmin GPSMap 60CS the user interface was
comfortable.


The automount is a second cradle which mounts on the windshield
via a suction cup. The suction cup mechanism was very sturdy and
stayed on for months without coming off. I did not find any problems with the mount unlike one previous reviewer.

Driving directions are provided via an external speaker
attached to the car charger. Sound was loud and clear.
The m5 has a built in speaker which has decent drive.
The battery looks to be of a replacable type. The device
comes with one slot for SD card. Onboard memory is around 60MB.
For $100 you could adda 1GB SD card and have the entire US maps loaded.

The map visibility depends a lot on the make of your car andthe angle of the windshield mount.
The map was clearly visible during daytime and nighttime.
I drive an Acura.The screen realestate is bigger than the Quest product. Outlook adresses, notes etc can be synched easily.


Entering addresses was a breeze using the stylus. The maps and
routing worked fine 98% of the time. Once in a while i had lost
satellite reception and had to reset the device. I think most of
these problems will be patched when Garmin comes out with a software update.

Couple of caveats...

The User interface is functional but lack friendliness.
Lots of concepts...like POI, Address, Locations which confuse the
user. This sofware needs to be reviewed by some usability
experts. Garmin folks ...are you listening...take a look at
IPod, google maps etc... complicated software but simpler interface.

The map sofware takes up 3GB on my HD. Think this is due to
incompatible map formats with other garmin products (60CS).
May not be a problem if you do not own other garmin products.

Pricing: This device needs to be priced under $500

2-0 out of 5 stars Buy if you want to be on the bleeding edge
I like garmin products.Seems support for this one is a bit dicey.

Pro's - It's a garmin.Most of their products are great, and their mapping software is good.

Con's - Bluetooth.Doesn't appear it works with much.Garmin tech support admits it doesn't work with any keyboard or headset.They don't admit to what it DOES work with.Seems they are relying on users to discover that.Documentation can be a bit sketchy too.Again, relying on users to find and report the bugs.If want to pay a lot for bleeding edge technology, this is it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Idaho - Plenty of Detail
.
A lot of people have been complaining about the lack of detail on MapSource. Well, I've got a different story to tell.

MapSource Topo covers the entire USA in 3 CDs (West, East, AK/HI). When running the program, go to Edit/Preferences and move the "Map Detail" bar from middle to high. Dirt roads, trails, streams, lakes, and all contour lines are displayed. I live in Idaho and was able to evaluate the trails in Idaho. You can print maps with MapSource too. The software does say that the scale is like the 1:100000 USGS maps; maybe some folks didn't realize what this meant before they bought it. Learn the USGS scales before you buy and then you won't be surprised.

If you want a step-by-step map, then buy the USGS 1:24000 series paper maps. However, MapSource is sufficient; it would be senseless to attempt a scale as large as 1:24000 on a small screen device such as a GPS. If you want 1:24000 maps, get National Geographic's Topo Series for your state...it's great!!! It also allows you to export waypoints and routes to your Garmin. It just won't load the actual map...only MapSource can do that.

Also, I've read the raving reviews about Maptech. What most people don't tell you is that Maptech and MapSource serve different purposes. MapSource is made by Garmin and can load tracks/waypoints/routes AND the actual map to your Garmin. Maptech can NOT load a map into your Garmin; Maptech is only good for loading waypoints/routes and then you have to PRINT the map. Instead of Maptech, get the National Geographic Topo map for your state; its less expensive and is quality stuff; it's the best for printed maps.

And one last thing... There are settings within the Garmin that determine how much detail a user will see. If these settings are turned to normal or medium, then don't expect to see the details (with or without MapSource).

I rate MapSource as 5 stars (best) because it delivers exactly what it promised. I'm very happy I made this purchase. Happy hiking...

3-0 out of 5 stars Garmin MapSource vs. Map Tech
I spent three hours online comparing different software for my Garmin E-Trex Vista, using my favorite little Northern Minnesota lake as my destination. I checked the difference between Garmin Mapsource Topo and Recreational, and found little difference. Sure they showed the lake, with pointy shorelines, and one big hill. It was kinda cool. Then I discovered Map Tech!!! The difference was breath-taking! Every little hill, a swamp, the reeds by the shore, and every subtle curve of the shoreline was shown in amazing detail! Instead of spending [$$] on the Garmin, and only being mildly excited, I spent an extra [$$], and got a map that gave me the confidence and peace-of-mind to explore all those unknown woods around the lake, with the full confidence of knowing every inch of the terrain. But only if you PRINT them. I was dissapointed that you can't load the maps into the Garmin Vista, only waypoints. So now all I can do is mark the trail the map so clearly shows on the computer, as waypoints against a blank field on the GPS. The only thing it didn't show, was the dirt road that led to the lake, which was an official Dept. of Natural Resources boat launch. Go to Maptech.com, and check out your favorite area for yourself.
If you want to load maps, then go hiking, MapSourse is best. If you want to plan a hike on the computer first, Maptech is best. (Haven't checked Nat'l Geographic).

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Note: This product includes an ancient version of Garmin's MapSource program. You will want to download an update from the Garmin Web site. A patch to the base map is also available there.

Even with these updates, the product is disappointing. There is very little detail. In the areas I examined, hiking trails were completely absent, and even major fire and logging roads were missing. Roads are shown in populated areas, but road names are not available. Newer roads are missing. Portions of the map appear to be at least 10 years out of date.

The density of contour lines is linked to the map scale and cannot be controlled independently. At high zoom factors, the number of contour lines is (barely) adequate, but at low zoom factors there are too few. Because of this, it is impossible to view major topographical features. The Colorado Rockies, for example, are completely invisible because at the scale necessary to see them in their entirety, the contour lines are gone. Even smaller features, such as a mountain 20 miles away, cannot be easily visualized. Without the aid of a GPS receiver, these maps would not be adequate for backcountry hiking.

The hype for this product claims that it is "comparable to USGS 1:100,000 scale maps". This is utter nonsense. As I write this, I am comparing just such a USGS map with the MapSource display of the same area. There is no comparison. To say that the USGS map blows MapSource away would be an understatement. Don't leave home without a paper map!

2-0 out of 5 stars Know what you're buying/ use the right tool for the job
I would just like to make a few comments about some of the reviews posted on this page concerning Mapsource's Topo USA software.

A number of reviewers have complained that this software is problematic or not accurate for cities or roads or neighborhoods. Well, while that may be the case, this product seems designed for the outdoors. It is intended to aid in navigating across wilderness areas (terrestrial and aquatic), not necessarily through the streets of downtown LA or any other city however large or small. Mapsource happens to sell a Metroguide product that is intended to serve city/road-navigation needs.

Yes, I will admit that the product description listed on this page talks about highways and roads and churches and other "non-wilderness" items and might be slightly misleading, but reviewing the entire product description I think you will see that the main emphasis is on wilderness travel.

Using this Mapsource Topo product for a purpose for which it was not specifically designed and then complaining about its lackluster performance is not really fair or accurate. You wouldn't use a toothbrush to brush your hair (although some might; I'm not passing judgement here) and it seems just as incorrect to use this product for urban needs. So if you have a StreetPilot or use your Garmin GPS for road/city navigation, check out the MetroGuide software and see if it suits your needs a little better.

Final point concerns the fact this product's maps are on the 1:100,000 scale. Be sure you know what this level of detail (or lack of detail as this case may be) means. I do not know what the contour interval of this scale map is, but the 1:63,360 scale maps are 100 feet (I believe). The 1:100,000 would have a larger contour interval and therefore, certain hills and ravines or valleys (depending on how big or small) might not show up on the map; they might be "hidden" between the contour intervals. Other software packages offer better mapping capabilities and easier user interface, but the one big drawback is that the topo maps generated by those programs cannot be downloaded into Garmin units; only MapSource topo maps can be downloaded.

I'm certainly not saying this product is error or problem free. Far from it. But the reviews should be as fair and accurate as possible so that other potential buyers can make well-informed decisions.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money!
To bad there wasn't a choice to give this 0 stars. Mapsource maps aren't good enough to deserve 1 star. I spent over a thousand bucks on a Garmin StreetPilot and the Mapsource unlock keys. The StreetPilot would be a great investment if it used maps other than those ones produced by Mapsource. If I use my StreetPilot as the gps receiver and hook it up to my laptop and run Microsoft's MapPoint, I get much more detailed maps and better accuracy. If Garmin wanted to improve their product, they'd leave the hardware alone and ditch Mapsource. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to All-in-one GPS units
I've been using a Garmin StreetPilot III for 3 years now, for those unfamilar with it, its a all-in-one GPS unit with auto-routing feature and voice prompt.Its a good trusty device, highly rugged and I credit much of my career success in Silicon Valley to it.

What prompted me to start sourcing for another GPS device is due to the airport hassle we experience these days.I work for the Sales department of a security company and that means frequent travel these days.The StreetPilot III is an excellent device but its a little bulky to fit into my notebook bag.

Hence enter the Garmin GPS 10.I got mine for $209 from Digitally Unique, they're slow on shipping but the price was good.Get the Deluxe package and not the receiver only one, the Garmin software and maps are worth the money.

In comparison with the older StreetPilot, advantages are:
1.Small, light and easily fit into your pocket or laptop bag, easier when passing through airport security.

2.Integrated magnetic mount allows for mounting outside the rental car, a good solution in case you rented a car with heatsheild on the windscreen that can block GPS signal.

3.Waterproof, so you can still mount the device outside the car in adverse weather condition.

4.Software provided for both PocketPC and Windows OS (Mac / Linux users are out of luck here).Most business travellers like myself typically carry a PDA and for sure has a notebook.In case your PDA fails, you'll still have GPS capability using your notebook.

5.Enhanced software features includes:
- More customization options
- Cool transparent setting for indicators and prompts
- Elevation indicator, nice feature when travelling
- Easier filter for Waypoints and POI (Points of Interest)

6.Uses standard SD or Compact flash memory cards supported by your PDA instead of the proprietary flash memory cards from Garmin.Get the Viking 512mb SD card available from Amazon here with rebate, goes nicely if your PDA has a SD slot.

7.The GPS 10 turns on automatically if it detects power from the 12v cigarette lighter adaptor.


Disadvantages compared to StreetPilot III:
1.This could be related to my choice of PDA, I'm using a Dell Axim X5 PocketPC 2003. This PDA does not have an integrated Bluetooth so I use a Anycom Bluetooth CF card.Whenever I turn off the PDA and back on again, I need to re-connect the Bluetooth serial connection.Then I have to stop the Garmin nRoute software from searching the serial port, then reconnect again.A bit of a hassle compared to the StreetPilot III where you simply turn it on.

2.Routing algorithm not as good as StreetPilot III.The Pocket PC based routing logic seems to be slightly inferior to the one based on SP III (Palm OS based).

3.Depending on your PDA, the screen could be very difficult to read in the car.The Dell Axim X5 does not do well despite its transreflective LCD.The SP 3 on the other hand is clearly visible under all sorts of condition.Recommend you buy a PDA with a very bright screen.

4.PDA dependent.The SP 3 is a integrated device and is very rugged, sitting in direct sunlight for 2 years before I finally managed to buy a townhouse with a garage last year.The PDA however, is flimsy in comparison.I would not thing the Dell Axim will hold up being in sunlight all the time for 2 years.

5.Mounting a hassle.For a semi permanent mount in a car, you'll have to buy a mount either from Seidio or Arkon.However, those mounts are mainly for the PDA and you'll have to mount the GPS 10 seperately.


Recommendation:
1.If you do not travel by air frequently but is looking for a GPS device for use in your car, go with one of those all-in-one devices such as the older Garmin 2610/2620 or the newer Garmin c320/c330.They're much easier to use and mount, and are easier to see in your car.

2.For frequent travellers by air, get this Garmin GPS 10 and a good PDA.This combo is a lot more portable and works even if you end up renting a car with heatshield on the windscreen.Also, in case the PDA fails, you'll have your notebook to fall back on.

3.If you decide on the Garmin GPS 10, get a PDA that has the fastest possible processor. The latest Intel XScale running at 624Mhz is a good choice.My Axim X5 running 416Mhz though usable, I sometimes felt a faster processor would be nice when I'm planning a trip and markign waypoints on the PDA. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars "Must Have" for the iQue 3600
The navigation capabilities of the iQue 3600 are fantastic. One really must have this Auto Navigation Kit in order to take full advantage of the unit.

"Friction Mount" in this case means that the unit is attached to a bean-bag base with high-friction rubber underneath so it doesn't slide around your dashboard.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Must
It stays put, it charges, and in New York city it's absolutely indispensable for getting good reception on the run.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great
Aside from a major collision, it will stay where you put it. Only problem is viewing the screen up on top of the dash. Too much glare, except at night. Am thinking of an external antenna, but that's another 60 to 90 bucks. Otherwise, wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars You really do need this if you have the IQue 3600
The friction mount makes it easy to use my IQue in the car. It keeps the screen in easy view, and the speaker on the plug makes it easy to hear the turn by turn directions. I am very glad I invested in the auto navigation kit.

It does work best on a flat dash board. The dash in our suburban slopes away toward the windshield, so you have to turn the GPS sideways to keep the antenna from hitting the windshield. My sedan has a flatter dash and it works perfectly.

You will be able to locate the unit pretty much any place on the dash where you can stand a coke can.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good product, but not slip-proof
You might get the impression from reading the other reviews here that this device never loses its grip even under off-roard conditions. Sorry to say but this isn't true. At least on my sloping dash, I have had to place it on top of one of those "sticky pads" to get it to stay in place at all. And it still isn't really that secure. As others have said here, it would be hard to live without now. The unit is very flexible in positioning the iQue for best visibility, and the charging cable/speaker is great, though a bit bulky around the power plug. Still, until something better comes along this is probably your best choice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, some idiosyncracies
You might be asking yourself, should I get the City Select Europe or the City Navigator Europe for about twice the price? I can't answer the question for you but I can say that I just returned from a 3 week trip where we drove all over Switzerland and France (including Paris) using City Select Europe and I'm glad I made the purchase.

I loaded my 2610 (North America basemap) with a good portion of eastern Europe before I departed. Once there, I was surprised how quickly the GPS acquired satelites and provided position and directional information. The GPS did a fine job of directing us from the airport to our hotel, from the hotel to sights in the area, to our hotel in Paris, to side trips to Dijon and Basil, etc. Worked equally well in cities and between cities.

The only problems I found, and these are not major ones IMHO, are:
* Once the GPS told us to take exit 46. But the exits have no numbers!
* Several times the GPS told us to take an exit using a description that was not on the exit.
In both cases, the audible directions ("in 2 kilometers exit right") and maps (showing the turn) were correct.

So what's the difference between City Select and City Navigator for Europe other than the price? I contacted Garmin, they say that "City Navigator handles rotaries (roundabouts) better". I did not see any problems with roundabouts during my trip.

I suspect that the City Navigator has more points of interest loaded, but I don't know this for a fact. Bottom line, I would recommend City Select Europe to anyone with a 2610 needing to travel in and around the countries it covers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Durable and comfortable
If you purchase an eTrex, make sure to get this carry case with it. It protects your GPS from scratches and it adds a belt strap. When hiking, or walking the belt strap is very useful.

I have not noticed any signal degradation when using the carry case. The Yellow eTrex still locks on and maintains its lock on the satellites with ease.

3-0 out of 5 stars Quality product, but not all that useful.
This is a good, quality accessory from Garmin. I think it's best feature is the belt-clip. It does a good job of keeping dirt and scratches off your already durable eTrex, too; and makes it not so YELLOW. (which can be good or bad) My complaints are that the button holes become misaligned occasionally and make it a little harder to push the buttons. I think if the case fit a little tighter, it would help address that problem. Also, the plastic cover over the screen can cause extra glare. The eTrex is rugged enough that this is an unnecessary accessory, unless you need a belt-clip or want your GPS to stay bright and clean.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Garmin Case!!
For the price that you pay on this case, it's great. A little glare isn't going to get you lost in the mountains. The material feels good and durable. If you have a eTrex this is a great case to have.

4-0 out of 5 stars good covergae, screen cover has too much glare
this is a perfectly designed case for the etrex legend. Joystick is easily accessible, it fits snug, and the belt clip is nice and secure. My only complaint is the plastic window to protect the LCD. It's pretty thick and seems like it scratches pretty easily and makes the LCD more difficult to read with the heavy glare. Otherwise, it's a good thing to have to protect your GPS from invetible drops and abrasion.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'll Make The Case For This Case!
I'm an avid inline skater and I use a Garmin eTrex Venture to determine distance, speed, etc. The belt clip on this case allows me to clip the unit onto my left elbow pad strap. The clip holds very securely and the case itself does an excellent job of protecting the Venture during those unfortunate, but thankfully rare, falls. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect!
First I had bought the Auto Navigation Kit to keep my Garmin iQue 3600 on the dashboard. Any quick acceleration though and my Garmin would be on the floor, waste of money.
Then this Garmin Suction Cup Mount came out; works perfect. We just cruised 3 weeks through Italy, France and Spain in my Alfa Romeo (V6 and sport tires & suspension = good test). Did some 4,000 km of all kind of road and driving conditions, including cobblestones, curvy coastal roads and bumpy secondary and mountain roads. Not once did the suction cup mount come loose from the windshield. Also, having the car sit parked in the hot sun for hours did not do any harm to the windshield-mounted device.
The cup mount installs and is removed in seconds. Clear voice sound from the speaker with easy volume control.
Other than that, it keeps your iQue 3600 charged, which you need as the battery does not last too long.
A definite must have if you want to use your iQue 3600 for car navigation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Computer guy
I purchased an IQue 3600 and I realized that I need a car adapter. So, I bought the Garmin suction cup car adapter. It works great. With a built in amplified speaker I can hear it loud and clear, and the convinience is that you can hang it any place on the glass in the cars. ... Read more
