Norm Out doorsmen hunter fishermen & SAR Member, February 28, 2013 I do a lot of Boat and snomachining and now i have a place to rest my rino GPS it grat
Fisherman Rob, February 1, 2012 Once you know how to use this, it works great. It's designed
to hold the GPS in, and it does it effectively. You will
need the screw that came with it (the knobby button that you
screw in the top back) for it to work. No problems, I highly
CO Wildlife Tech, October 26, 2010 Referring to my previous review... "ED" left a note below
my previous review, and I'm here to clarify and respond...
Ed, I know that the Rino530's come with a small button, but
you should know that the small button DOES NOT work with
this cradle. I have this cradle and also ordered one for
my dad and i promise that the small button DOES NOT hold
the Rino 530 securely in this cradle. The larger "Octagon
Button with Screw" (Item #: RAP277GA8) is the only button
that will hold the GPS Unit securely in this cradle. I use
GPS's as a primary tool for my work (everyday) and have
both the Rino 130 GPS and Cradle and the Rino 530HCx GPS
and Cradle and the small button absolutely does not hold
the 530 securely in this cradle. See, I have both of them
in my hands right now and the small button does not hold
the 530 in this cradle without the octagon button w/ screw
that came with the Rino 1xx series cradle. I mean, look at
the size of the hole/latch at the top of this cradle, and
you will see that it is much bigger (the size of the larger
Octagon Button w/ screw) than the small standard button
that comes with the 530 gps unit. I just tried it...the
small button does not work with this cradle, well, at least
with mine, and i doubt that everyone elses' is different
that mine. I travel the state of Colorado and use my
Rino's every day to help me sign property boundaries on
close to 550,000 acres all across CO, so I'm constantly
field testing these products to make my job more
efficient. Trust me, the octagon button with screw is the
only way I am able to get my Rino 530HCx to stay secured in
this cradle. Item RAP277GA8 is needed to keep the Rino
530HCx secure in this cradle. I just proved it to myself
again right here in front of my eyes, so....
Colorado Wildlife Technician, October 6, 2010 To update everyone from my previous review...
The 'Ram Mount OCTAGON BUTTON from Rino 1xx Series cradle'
WILL work with this cradle for the Rino 530 HCx. I also
have a Rino 130 GPS and have the cradle for it. The Rino
1xx Series cradle comes with the 'Octagon Button', but the
Rino 5xx Series cradle (this cradle) does not come with any
button. MY Rino 530HCx stays secured in this cradle with
the 'Octagon Button'... I hope this helps...well it for
sure will...because i already have 1 octagon button that
works with both this cradle and the cradle for my Rino 130,
but when i ordered this cradle for my dad's Rino 530HCx
unit, it did not come with any button and I could not
remember how I had one so that i could get one for him. I
actually ordered 5 of them in case i lose any and to give a
few to my dad. YAY!! PROBLEM SOLVED!!
