Works well but maps are expensive

  • Summary: First one failed within 3 days, was exchanged quickly by Amazon, unit is good it finds Satellites very quickly even after moving a large distance since last use, and if you purchase the Garmin maps is excellent, if you are going to purchase lots of maps consider the Dakota 20 with its extra storage ability.

Reasonable

  • Summary: I use this device for Geocaching, and there are 2 big faults with it,1 geocache co-ords can not be deleted only over written and you can not place your name and address on the start up page should you loose the device,both these things could be achieved on my 10 year old Garmin Gecko,progress?,I don't think so,very disappointed.

  • Summary: Great unit very affordable and rugged. BUT! base maps supplied very basic new maps vastly too expensive, internal memory needs to bigger as no sd card slot on this unit, wish i had bought the dakota 20. Screen size just right, fits in a pocket and can be used for walks or cycle etc.

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.
