Rino 110 - 120

3 posts in this topic

ok i know there are way to many gps topics out there but i did a search and was unable to find info that i am lookin for. want to get a rino 110 or 120 because i think they could very well be a very handy tool. i have talked to all the "experts" at my local stores and have gotten nothing but conflicting anwsers. the rino 110 is just a gps and handheld radio with no mapping. 120 has mapping. what i would love to do would be able to download my lakemaster maps for ice fishing - was told by 2 the rino 120 would not and 1 that it would take the software. if this will not work then it would seem that the 110 would work fine because i can still download spots i want to try. what does the 120 do over the 110 other than more memory? if they "mapping" the 120 does is cities and stuff that makes no sense to spend the extra money.
also - tree cover - is this thing going to work when i am pushin the back 40 with my buddies this fall?
if none of these things do what i want maybe i would be better off just stickin to my handheld in my shirt pocket and my radio clipped to my pack. would be nice to have all in one and see where my buddies are as well.
any info would be helpfull
thanks

The Rino 110 will accept and upload waypoints from Lakemaster software. The 120 is a mapping GPS and as such will upload maps and waypoints from Garmin software and/or Garmin POI (point of interest) OR lakemaster software. The 110 is capable of uploading ONLY waypoints such as POI software or Lakemaster maps. You may in good faith purchase either one, but mapping is very nice. Many claim they don't want or need it until they have it. Then they love it.........Go with the 120!

To the point of it working "in the back 40", unless you are in brutally dense cover, the quadrifiliar antenna is really good. More often than not you will maintain a signal. Especially after the leaves have come down.

    • It is summer bacon season, plus they have gotten trendy on their own.  
    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any?
