Hey Braaap,
Our Garmin 520's vibrate to alert for a call. Expensive, but really nice units.
Hope it helps.

Any suggestions for two way radios (no GPS) that have a good range out West? Cooke City, Island Park.

I have been researching radios and a few of the newer models do have a vibrate mode. Two of the models I am considering are the Motorola MR350R VP or the Midland GXT1050VP4.
Motorola site- http://www.motorola.com/Business/US-...ay-Radio_US-EN
Midland site- http://www.midlandradio.com/Two-Way-...BS3/GXT1050VP4

Other models can be found on both sites. Both have a vibrate mode. Both seem to have more good reviews than bad. Motorola looks easier to operate. Midland throws in a few goodies and longer warranty. Tough to decide which way I am going to go. Leaning a little more to the Midland.

I have a pair of older Motorola radios. They have a vibrate mode. Like stated above they vibrate when alerted & before recieving a call. They are Talkabout T6220. They are very durable. Like I said I have had them forever. I believe they are still making this radio in a newer model.

Default FYI

Ladies and Gents. GPS units and two way radios are awesome tools to have with us in the backcountry. I have tried a bunch of different brands and a few of us in our group have gone to the Rhino model (not sure the number) that has GPS locator for others with similar units. It is a handy device because it incorporates GPS, Tracking, and GMRS radio into one unit.

One problem with all of these devices is... they can interfere with avalanche safety equipment. I never knew this, however we recently did a course that addressed this issue. It applies to iPhones and other electronic devices. If you carry these units they should be in the off position unless they are needed. Phone units should be checked with the airplane mode on with beacons for interference prior to riding.

Please note, I am not selecting any particular models or manufacturers. I do not know which ones actually interfere with which avy equipment. I am stating that you should all check for interference prior to riding with your equipment and those you are riding with!!!

We did a check with this equipment including an iPhone and discovered it can in fact be a problem.

FYI

Most are good, they all follow the regulations for manufacturing these units. Motorola usually has good deals and work well. Some deals are two for one etc. I had Uniden years ago, but back then they didn't work as well as motorola. Uniden has always been a good product and I am not sure if they even make them anymore, but I am sure they make a great product if they do now. I think a few months ago I saw 2 motorola's c/w a double charger for $120.

Thats what I would buy. Seem the cheaper stuff is the better it works these days. Even if they stop working they are cheap to replace and if you wreck one same thing....

We used Rhino 650 radio/GPS units this year and I can't tell you how highly I recommend them. The radios save so much hassle trying to keep track of your party. We use Motorola speaker mics on a tether attached to our avy vests and they work great and save pulling the radio out to talk on it. We tested our Rhinos several times for interference with the search function of our beacons(Pieps) and there was NONE for us but you should check them your self. smwizz is right about the iPhone though, it showed up on a practice beacon search for us. An instructor was using his to time the drill and it showed up on our beacons as a target. We now shut our phones down and turn them off and on as needed.

A good one is the Motorola MR350R 35-Mile Range. This has 22 Channels FRS/GMRS and can vibrate like that of a cellphone. Hope this helps.

Default Rhino

I personally use Rhino. It is expensive but.... it has GPS, it has a radio, it has a friend locator on the GPS. It is a bit tricky to run but once again... use it and it is an awesome tool. Oh yeah... GPS rule of thumb (learned the hard way!!!)... Turn it off while you play and use only for trails, waypoints and communication.


When playing it tracks where you are going. You can turn off tracking on some GPS models but you have to remember to do this. If you come across a situation where GPS is needed, the small screens make it difficult to find your way back on occasion. If nothing else it wears the battery down and when you most need it... you don't have it!!!


Take care on the use of these pieces of modern super tech. They are wickedly awesome tools when they work. It will never hurt to learn how to track your own butt back home with no tech. Sometimes this stuff fails. We had an experience recently that was not a real bad one, but a reminder that we should always pay close attention and remember that mother nature rules the back country!!!

Happy Trails!!!

Oh yeah... carry spare batteries!!!
