Garmin Rino it worth it?

Just got the rino the other day to run with my old zumo for my back country rides. Is it any good? Still waiting on my ram mount and to load topograpical maps to it. Just curious what the general censious was on these things.

Last generation technology, gets the job done but I think it has track limits. Does have the radio if you can use it. Worth $75 or so. State of the art 78 is $200.

The newer Rino 600 series units can be used with the new 'BaseStation' addition to Garmin Basecamp. It lets you monitor other units in the field by attaching one of the units to a Mac or PC. The position transmissions from each radio will be plotted on the map screen.
