Ok if it works

cacherdudy, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought a Dakota 1o at the end of July after finding geocaching and quickly becoming hooked. Had done my homework and was happy with my purchase and the prospect of paperless caching. All well for the first 3 weeks while the unit worked I really couldnt fault it. However, on a trip to Prague the unit developed a 'fault 22' and was unable to locate satellites.

  • Summary: It is small, light and great for geocaching. Only criticism is you can't read the time off it. Very good battery life too.

  • Summary: Great little gadget! I use it for geocaching and can now do it paperless which is excellent. Its accuracy is good and even the kids are willing to use it.Just a few things I've not got to grips with yet and that is the downside of items nowadays manuals are on discs not on paper! I have also bought screen protector and silicone cover from the knocks its going to take. Very pleased with it.

Star item

  • Summary: The Garmin does what it say's easy to use touch screen. Great for Geocaching as it includes all the information you need to successfully complete your cache. Worth spending a little extra on the lithium batteries with the Garmin as they lasts a lot longer.

Can't rate this highly enough

  • Summary: This has been one of our best buys. We had a Garmin eTrex back from 10 years ago when these things were quite new, and as geocachers it wasn't quite getting the accuracy of coordinates that we needed. The Dakota 10 is very geocaching friendly and we can download caches straight from the website (we upgraded to premium membership for this).

  • Excerpt: We purchased this gps mainly to use it for paperless geocaching. Love the color touchscreen & it's quick response time. The USB cable is much more convenient than our old gps. No moving buttons to wear out.

  • Summary: I wanted to go paperless with Geocaching so I bought this as a replacement for my Garmin ETrex Venture Hc.It does the job perfectly and I can geocache without reames of paper as it holds all the description of the caches, logs and hints for me to look at on screen. It was good value for money offering paperless feature and additional features too.Other units with similar features were really expensive so this seemed a cost effective option.I at first wished I had shelled...

Dakota 10

JohnP, Amazon
20 July 2010
  • Summary: This item is a virtually useless piece of kit. It is delivered with a 'basemap' which does not include even large villages and only few A roads. The main problem is that you cannot upgrade easily to better maps. I do not feel that Garmin provide enough data to make a good buying decision. Anybody wishing to do any hill walking should consider the Dakota 20 as a minimum. Be sure to have a demo before purchasing this type of device, a cheap sat nav could be better.
