Red Leader, Where You At?, Over.

If you've got more money than you know what to do with, you might want to buy me one (or better yet, two) of these Garmin Rino 530 FRS radios to use at Burning Man this year. We're talking 12 mile range and full-function GPS on this bad boy. Only $535.70 each.

You want stats? You got stats:

Rino 530 features include:

- Whopping 5 watts of transmit power (GMRS) means you can now call for help from 12 miles away
- Bold color TFT display makes it easy to see and navigate to family or friends with Rinos at an amusement park, lake, or other outdoor group activity
- Automatic route generation, off-route recalculation, turn-by-turn directions with alert tones, and icon-driven menus for finding points of interest (when combined with Garmin’s optional MapSource® City Select® software) navigate you safely to your next outdoor adventure
- Mini USB and 56 megabytes of internal memory for rapid download and lots of map storage of Garmin’s entire line of outdoor cartography
- Rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery for up to 16 hours of outdoor use
- Barometric altimeter provides extremely accurate elevation for hikers and climbers
- Electronic compass so you can get a heading when standing still
- NOAA weather capability to keep you informed of changes in weather
