Garmin Rino 520

I saw the Garmin Rino 520 in the recent issue of FFSW, it is expensive at about $500 but what a bit of gear. If I did not already have a lowrance M68, I would have bought one for my yak.

Jamie,

Is that unit DSC capable? That certainly would be a nice safety feature if you found yourself in a pickle. I will be carrying a ACR PLB this season on my boat but agree that if you wanted a single device to keep on you that would be nice one.

It doesn't explicitly say that it is, but it make the following statement on the site.

"We are pleased to announce that the FCC has granted Garmin a waiver that allows the Rino series units to send position data on GMRS channels. In addition, Industry Canada has established a license-free GMRS service. Canadian Rino units now allow users access to GMRS channels. Position sending/polling is also allowed on Canadian GMRS channels."

Which I am guessing means it is DSC capable.

It is their top of the line unit, so I would imagine that is comes feature loaded. The law in the UK is still really fuzzy on handheld DSC units. Think your FCC are a little more forward thinking.
