Garmin Rhino 700 series
« on: May 03, 2017, 07:45:47 PM »
Does anyone have experience with the new Garmin Rhino 750 or 755t?

I'm thinking of updating to a newer Rhino this year and I'm wondering if the new 700's are worth the extra money or if I should just pickup a 650 the next time I see them on sale for $300.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm picking up a 755t here in a month or so.  Upgrading for the 530hcx, which I will keep as a back up.  I usually skip an upgrade to save a few bucks.

Sooooo what makes the 700s better than the 650s?

700 series have Bigger higher resolution screen. That's the main reason i went with the 750 over the 650. 700 has a few more bells and whistles but they didn't do a whole lot for me.

I think the 750's have weather if youre connected to wifi. Maybe some more Bluetooth options.

I'm going to be upgrading from a 430 so there is a lot of changes whether I go 650 or 755. Has anyone used the "birds eye" feature and is it worth it?  It comes free for a year on the 755t along with the 100k topo.

It says it charges via a standard mini USB.

Gonna revive this thread.
Thinking of the 750 or 755.
Is it worth the extra $100 to go with 755?  Looking at the specs, you get a little more internal memory, the camera(which I don't need), and the topo maps.

I assume that the 750 will show topo maps with the right chip?

In some areas you will likely buy the onx state or regional chip for $79-$99 but its nice to have a backup for areas you haven't yet purchased - the full US topo is $99 but comes with the 755 so its a good deal and you get a free camera plus the us topo built in.  But if you are only using it in one or two states and don't ever need the camera then save the $ and just by an onX chip.  The birdseye is a $29 subscription.  Ive used it but quality wasn't as good as my cell phone but may be better now.

I just received my 755t a couple of days ago.  Love it so far.  No field use yet.

Great info, thank you.
I was thinking of getting the WA state onX chip with either, so I can get the public/private landownership boundaries.  But I just looked up online, and WA chip is $119.99. For some reason I thought separate state chips were under $50.??!!

Sounds like 755 is the way to go, I'll have the topo but not the boundaries.

I'm sure it'll be great in the field too. Enjoy!

How does the Birdseye work in the back country?  Cell phones and tablets are good when you have services but I'm not usually hunting where there is service.
