B 1 Installing the Batteries The Rino 130 operates on three “AA” Alkaline batteries (not included) located in the back of the unit. Rechargeable batteries may also be used. See the Rino 130 Owner’s Manual for setting battery type. The unit is factory set to use Alkaline batteries. Stored data is not lost when the batteries are removed. To install batteries: 2 Viewing the Main Pages All of the information you need to operate the Rino 130 can be found on six default main pages (or display screens). Simply press and release the Page key to cycle through the Radio Page, Map Page, Navigation Page, Altimeter Page, Trip Computer, and Main Menu Page. You can also access the Main Pages by pressing the on-screen Main Page Menu button . 1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the unit. Turn the D-ring 1/4 turn counter-clockwise and pull the cover off. Radio Page Map Page 3 Initializing the GPS Before the Rino 130 can be used for navigation, the GPS receiver must be initialized. Initialization allows the Rino 130 to receive and store satellite information and begin using the satellites for navigation. The initialization is automatic and should only take a few minutes. To initialize the unit (acquire satellites): 1. Take the Rino 130 outside where it has an unobstructed view of the sky and turn it on. 2. The unit begins to search for satellite signals. “Tracking Satellites” is displayed while the unit is initializing. The ﬁrst time you use your Rino 130, initialization should take no Tracking Satellite Signals more than ﬁve minutes. 3. When the GPS is initialized and ready for navigation, the message “3D Accuracy” is displayed on the Radio Page. If for some reason the unit is not able to gather the necessary satellite information, refer to the Rino 130 Owner’s Manual. Main Menu 2. Insert batteries observing the polarity reference molded into the unit housing. Orient the negative (-) battery terminal toward the spring. 3. Reinstall the battery cover by inserting the bottom hinge clip and closing the cover. Turn the D-ring 1/4 turn clockwise. Notes on battery use: • • • • When replacing batteries, use only new or fully recharged batteries. Rechargeable batteries may typically display less capacity than Alkaline batteries. Do not mix different types of batteries together. Remove the batteries from the unit if you do not plan to use it for several months. Follow the battery manufacturer’s instructions for proper care and disposal of used batteries. Extensive use of backlighting, WAAS, and/or FRS or GMRS will signiﬁcantly reduce battery life.
