I just can't do without it.

  • Summary: This little gadget neatly solves a long standing problem of mine, namely, setting off in entirely the wrong direction. I use talkytoaster maps for this and basecamp and I can create a route using basecamp and then transfer it to the Dakota 10. Then as I walk along I can see if I am deviating from my planned route, no trouble at all. If you are off the route, then it will show you how to get back to it. Wow! Every walker should have one.

  • Summary: It is ok however, the maps are a big disappointment . I have not had it long so maybe my experience is not conclusive . You definitely need lithium batteries for duration . It was the best I could afford.

Not plug and play

grouser, Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: I have given it three stars because although the hardware is just fine this is not plug and play. It requires several pieces of software that have to be identified and downloaded in order for the gps to talk to the computer. The manual is also web based and rather superficial. There is much more on the gps than is explained. The site you go to is far more geared to trying to sell you expensive maps than helping you to understand the machine.

Not as good as I thought it would be

Mrs T, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm sure if there were decent maps installed on this product it would be brilliant, its not much good without them. The maps are very expensive to buy, though found a website that had free ones which gets me by. I joined a walking party and one or two people had them hanging around their necks, but they don't use them much. My daughter's phone works better.

  • Summary: Purchased for our scout group for GeoCaching and supporting map and compass work. The units work well and have a 12+ hour life on a new set of rechargeable batteries. The price through Amazon couldn't be beaten and they were delivered well packaged and tracked. Excellent affordable introduction to GPS navigation.

Got Us To Paris!

ChrisandSab, Tesco
10 July 2013
  • Pros: very accurate, good size, good bright light even in sunlight, light weight. Used to get two cyclists to Paris, wouldn't have made it without it! And has introduced us to geo caching!
  • Cons: Battery bar stays full right up until the last 20mins then dies, so carry spare or make sure the screen turns off after 5 seconds to save battery but the screen will light up automatically when approaching a turn or change in direction.

Garmin Dakota 10 GPS

AJR, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: I am really happy with the Garmin Dakota 10 GPs. I wanted a GPs that I could go paperless with when geocaching as printing off all this information was time consuming and wasteful....the Garmin Dakota 10 was perfect for this. The Dakota 10 is easy for me to use and does exactly what it says on the box. The only down side is that you cannot delete geocaches etc by hand you have to connect up to the computer.
