I meant to ask yesterday while I was quizzing the members about cameras but I have a question about GPS as well. I know the Zumo is a fine piece of equipment but I have read about some other models that might work very well on a Vstrom. Does anybody have any experience with the Garmin Rino series with the built in GMRS/FRS radio?
I think that it would be nice to be able to chat with another rider from time to time while on the road. Also, with the Strom, there is a lack of reserve wattage in regards to adding all sorts of electronic equipment. Having devices run on a few rechargable batteries might be the ticket. The newest in the Rino (530HCx) line can be had for a couple hundred dollars and they're waterproof.
How bout it, anybody using one of these?
