Garmin $599 ★★★ The Rino aims to com­bine easy, re­li­able com­mu­ni­ca­tion through a two-way ra­dio sys­tem with in-built GPS to let you know where you are, and where friends us­ing the same de­vice are. Sadly, it doesn’t like cold water, which wasn’t ideal given the fifth ob­sta­cle in the course in­cluded a short sub­mer­sion in al­most frozen water. The de­vice went into a hi­ber­na­tion mode. It did come back on­line later in the course, though water pre­sum­ably got to the speak­ers be­cause the walkie-talkie was so quiet voices couldn’t be un­der­stood. With more time voices could be heard more clearly. It will sur­vive, but don’t plan on us­ing it at short no­tice if you fall into a river dur­ing win­ter.
