Garmin rhino 130 gps

3 posts in this topic

Garmin just came out with a rhino 130, this supercedes the 120. It has all the same features but also has a electronic compass and barometer. I just bought the 120 and am wondering if the $120 upgrade is worth it for those two features.

I got a Garmin map 76s for Christmas. That has the baromitter and elec. compass. I use the compass in the woods. It help a little. I have never used the baromitter. If you could get your money out of the 120 it would be ok, I personally don't use those options much. Does the 130 have more memmory for maps. That' what I would look for. I have the topo software and I use that a lot for hunting. I will get some lake software soon for mine.

I have a Etrex Vista. I love the electronic compas on the unit. I just think it's easier to use because you don't have to be moving to get the arrow or whatever to show you what direction you need to go. I think any GPS works, it's just what you get used to using and knowing how to use what you have.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
