    I use topo maps I sourced for free in my 60csx, have a look on the net they shouldn't be too hard to find for the newer units.

    Had a play with mates Rino on a couple of hunts now. Yes, they are quite bulky, but they do what they say they do. But, so does my 62s, and I personally prefer to carry a seperate radio rather than relying on one item of electronics that may shit itself. The Rino is supposed to allow you to find and track to your mates on screen, but this seems to be reliant on your mate activating the radio in order for you to see their posi. I say it seems to be the case, as I havent played with one enough to prove it one way or the other.
    If someone knows different, let me know
