We got turned on to the Garmin rino's.

They are FRS/GRS, plus they include a garmin GPS, and have a true scramble mode, in addition to the normal 38 interference codes found on frs radios.

They also have a really nice feature, one you can enable or disable, where your GPS coordinates are transmitted to other radios in your group. (you can name each radio and decide which ones to include or not.)

The position of all the other radios can be displayed on the radio. You can navigate to any of them.

We will do things like simply key the mike twice to update our positions, without saying a word.

This makes it very easy to coordinate movement between people without having to see them or say anything.

Down side, of course, is that you are open to easedropping and having your position being seen by others.

But, so far, they've been awesome and easy to use.

The rino's are pricy, however.

But they are cheaper than buying a radio AND a decent gps unit.

Yes, the codes are the same. there's also an overlap of a few of the FRS and GMRS channels - I have a list of which ones somewhere. (still in the middle of moving, so I'd have to look for them)
