Garmin Rino lost, polled and found!


Later that night, we invited another hunter friend over to our cabin for nightly cocktails and dinner, and I explained what happened to my Rino. He said "do you know how to "poll" your Rino?" I told him I was vaguely familiar with the polling feature, but had never used it. He explained that "polling" allows one unit to find the location of another Rino, and could potentially lead us to my lost unit. I said "let's have some dinner and then go for it!" We set out about 8:30 in the pitch dark, with plenty of flashlights, another friend, and three Rinos. We got to the spot in the road above where I lost my unit, turned ours on and polled for my contact. We soon triangulated on my lost Rino about 0.25 miles down in the woods, and started bushwhacking in that direction.About 20 minutes later our friend said "OK, we're within 20 feet. Let's call and see if we can hear it." Sure enough, we heard the call loud and clear, and my friend looked down and found my Rino on the ground between his feet!"

Needless to say, we were delighted at our success and amazed by the range of features available in the Rino 120 – most impressively the polling feature! Thanks Garmin, and keep up the good work!
