    Only just out in NZ, i think Pilotshopdownunder has the best prices (just). I brought a couple over in Aus 6 months back, good kit but horribly slow to recharge, each one takes around 30 hours to charge

    Thanks guys. looked at the Aussie site for the 750 they are a bit cheaper as long it gets thru without getting duties etc.

    might find someone here is going back and forward and can bring them home. very likely to attract gst at customs given the value

    30 hrs seems excessive to say the least. What method of charging are you using?

    Not really but from garmin website it would seem you can put them into a faster charging mode, interestinly they only transmit at 5W in the US and whilst running on the Garmin Battery, On either AA's or outside the USA their Tx power is limited depending on the country of use
    Rino 600 or 700 series battery charging issues



    If the battery for you Rino 600* or 700 series device is not charging at all or fails to charge completely it is important to ensure that the software on the unit is fully up to date using Garmin Express.
    Follow the steps below to complete the software update:
    1. Connect the Rino to your computer
    2. Download and install Garmin Express
    3. Open Garmin Express
    4. Click on Add a Device
    5. Once your Rino is detected click the Add Device button
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions within Garmin Express to complete the setup process
    7. Click the Install button when the Software Update Available box appears
    8. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the update
    At this point the you can power the device on to finish applying the update. If your unit will not power on at all under battery power follow the steps below to complete this process:
    1. Disconnect the unit from your computer
    2. Connect the unit to your Garmin Rino AC adapter cable*
    3. If it does not turn on automatically, press the Power button
    4. Wait for the update to complete
    After these steps have been followed, leave the Rino unit plugged into the AC adapter to charge. Press the Power button once to put the Rino in charging mode for a faster charging time.

    If the battery was very depleted it may take up to one hour for the device to show signs of charging. If the battery stops charging partway through disconnect the unit from the AC adapter and then plug it back in. It should now complete the charging process.
    *The Rino 610 does not use a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery so these steps are not for that model.
    **It is very important the charging cable used is the one provided by Garmin that came in the box with the Rino. This ensures the device is getting the correct amount of power for the charge.

    I was of the belief that they automatically reduce the output transmission power with the change in battery type.

    Personally I prefer the Alpha100 units as they update your mates (and dogs ) position automatically. The pity is you cannot buy just the hand held unit on its own

    that would be handy sending pings every now and again.
    what i did experience once when we couldnít pick each other up due to hills/distance was a weak signal must have come through. enough to pick up the other units location. made me realise it is worth just pressing the talk button every now and again at random for the sake of updating position (i keep it in a pouch on my belt)
