Garmin® introduces the Rino® 750 and 755t rugged GPS Navigator with two-way radio and connected features

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced two new models of rugged two-way radio handhelds, the Rino 750
and Rino 755t. Boasting a built-in 5-watt FRS/GMRS radio for a
communication range of up to 20 miles, these new devices have an updated
3-inch multi-touch display with improved optical clarity, wireless
connectivity1 and Active Weather for up-to-date forecasts and
animated radar. The new user interface is intuitive and easy to use, and
the preloaded worldwide basemap makes navigation a breeze. Additionally,
the Rino 755t includes TOPO US 100K maps and an 8MP camera with an LED
flash. Both radios have a built-in NOAA weather radio and a position
reporting feature to see the location and send text messages and even
emergency alerts to other Rino users on their same channel. With these
connectivity and communication features, adventurers of all kinds can
have a new sense of security and safety while using the new Rino 750 and

“The Rino 750 and 755t are exciting additions to the Garmin lineup of
rugged two-way radio handheld devices,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice
president of worldwide sales. “The new wireless features, access to live
weather radar information and the ability to send emergency alerts to
other Rino devices – all paired with the built-in two-way radio –
provide users with a unique safety net and peace of mind while out in
the field.”

With the built-in 5-watt FRS/GMRS radio, the Rino 750 and 755t have a
range of up to 20 miles over GMRS and two miles over FRS to communicate
at the touch of a button. Both handhelds support unit-to-unit text
messages with other Rino users in the area (including the Rino 6xx and
53x series), as well as support for Bluetooth® audio headsets for
improved voice communication. Unique to the Rino 750 and 755t line is
Emergency Alerts, which allow the user to send emergency alerts and get
confirmation that help is on the way.

The new Rino devices have a high-sensitivity GPS with GLONASS support
for better reception, even in challenging environments like heavy tree
cover or deep canyons. Additionally, these handhelds have a larger
3-inch multi-touch display with dual orientation capabilities, and a
preloaded worldwide basemap for easy navigation. The Rino 755t adds TOPO
US 100K mapping, a 1-year subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery2,
as well as an 8MP camera with an LED flash and torch. With the microSD
card slot, both the Rino 750 and 755t are compatible with additional
maps like HuntView™
to see public and private land data while hunting or BlueChart®
while out on the water.

Both of the new units have built-in ABC sensors: the altimeter provides
elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent; the barometer
can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term changes in
air pressure; and the 3-axis electronic compass helps users keep their
bearings, even when standing still. These devices also support
unit-to-unit transfer, so users can easily share routes, tracks,
waypoints, geocaches, photos and custom maps with other compatible
Garmin handheld devices, with no mobile connection required.

With a compatible smartphone and the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, Rino
750 and 755t users will have more wireless connectivity functionality.
The Active Weather feature provides real-time forecast information and
animated weather tracking for weather awareness, and when users are out
of cell range, the built-in NOAA weather radio ensures that they can
stay on top of any National Weather Service warnings.

Both of the new Rino devices are compatible with the Garmin Connect IQ™
platform, so users will be able to customize their device with more data
fields, widgets and apps to fit their individual lifestyles3.
Additionally, users can pair their handhelds with their compatible
smartphonefor call, text and email notifications right on
the device, as well as wireless software downloads and automatic data
uploads to the Garmin Connect online community. When paired with a
smartphone, the Rino 750 and 755t will also have wireless integration
with for Geocaching Live. Users will be able to
wirelessly download cache descriptions, logs and hints, even if they’re
out in the field. Once a geocache is logged as found, it will be
automatically uploaded to the user’s profile. Premium members will be able to sync their geocaching lists
directly to their device.

The Rino 750 and 755t have a rugged, ergonomic design, and a water
rating of IPX7 to withstand the elements4. The devices have a
unique dual battery system that is compatible with the included
lithium-ion rechargeable pack or optional four AA battery pack (sold
separately). With the rechargeable battery pack, the devices can get up
to 14 hours of battery life, or up to 18 hours with AA batteries.
