"Garmin Rino is the first GPS device to have a GMRS/FRS radio integrated into it. It also is the first GPS device to support the Peer-to-Peer Positioning, this patented technology makes it possible to transmit your location to a friend or family member." This Yahoo Discussion Forum is for anything and everything related to the Garmin Rino GPS device. Also check out the Garmin GPS V handheld GPS unit discussion group.
SPOT Satellite Messenger uses "the GPS satellite network to acquire its coordinates, and then sending its location â€“ with a link to Google Mapsâ„¢ â€“ and a pre-programmed message via a commercial satellite network... SPOT does more than just call for help. Tracking your progress, checking in with loved ones, and non-emergency assistance are also available, all at the push of a button. And because it uses 100% satellite technology, SPOT works around the world â€“ even where cell phones don't."

Recommended by Richard B. on the HUBB: "I came across this site recently www.handtops.com - very nerdy but info on the latest generation of ultra small but fully functional handheld computers - rather than PDAs."
Russia has some very specific and strict rules on the use and importation of these, so read up on it before you go - there's a thread on the HUBB here, and a US State Department advisory.
