Using Peer-to-Peer Positioning
The Rino’s most unique feature is Peer-to-Peer positioning, sending the location of one Rino unit to other Rino units. Peer-to-Peer

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.

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.
