Garmin® introduces the Rino® 700, a budget-friendly, powerful five-watt two-way handheld radio

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Rino 700, an affordably priced addition to its popular
Rino series of rugged two-way radio and GPS navigation handhelds. The
Rino 700 features a sunlight-readable monochrome display and thumbstick
control. It boasts built-in high-sensitivity GPS with GLONASS support to
give users superior reception in the most challenging conditions.
Similar to the existing Rino handhelds, it includes position reporting
capabilities that allow users to see the location and send messages to
other Rino users on their same channel. With the easy-to-operate,
powerful communication features and preloaded worldwide basemap,
explorers of all kinds can have a sense of security and safety with the
Rino 700 in tow.

“The Rino 700 lets you stay in touch with your group anywhere, anytime,”
said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “It’s a
budget-friendly option that’s perfect for a family or group of friends
who want an easy-to-use device for basic communication and navigation.”

With the built-in 5-watt GMRS radio, the Rino 700 has a range of up to
20 miles to communicate at the touch of a button. Compatible with all
existing Rino devices, FRS and GMRS, the Rino 700 features a unique
positioning reporting capability that allows users to send their exact
location to another Rino user on the same channel and view it on the map
display, or request a position from another Rino device with the
position polling feature. This new handheld also supports unit-to-unit
text messages with other users in the area, another way to stay in touch
with other Rino-carrying members of the group. VOX capable with a 3.5mm
headphone jack for headset support, this radio is equipped with all the
essential Rino series core features.

The new Rino 700 has high-sensitivity GPS with GLONASS support for
better satellite reception, even in challenging environments like heavy
tree cover or deep canyons. Additionally, this handheld has a sunlight
readable, 2.2-inch monochrome LCD display making outdoor viewing a
breeze. It offers an adjustable backlight for night operation, and the
thumbstick selector provides easy one-handed control, even when wearing
gloves. This rugged unit has an ergonomic design, and with a water
rating of IPX71 it can withstand the elements. This device
houses an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and a battery life
of up to 13 hours between charges.

The Rino 700 handheld navigator is expected to be available in August
2017 and will have a suggested retail price of $349.99. For more
