And because the Rino 110 has standard FRS capabilities, you can talk to friends or family who own conventional FRS radios.The Rino 110 has a built-in city point data base, with 1 MB of internal memory for additional points-of-interest data that can be downloaded from a MapSource Points of Interest CD-ROM.Minimize
