This patent-pending technology makes it possible to transmit your location
to a friend or family member, showing them the distance and bearing from
your position to theirs on a Rino display. This could be a life-saving
feature in an outdoor emergency by helping rescuers pinpoint your
location.or it could be used simply for rounding up the family at an
amusement park or ski resort. "

Read very carefully - "patent-pending" ...

WB4APR/Bob, any comments?
