Summary: I've previously used a Garmin Oregon 300 & this unit is very similar. However it is less expensive & the touch sensitive screen is less milky than the Oregon 300 which is a bonus. Both are readable in bright sunlight but the Dakota is easier to see.
Summary: I just love my Dekota. Use it for geocaching and to find my way when I've been lost! Managed to download free maps and used it to find my way around cities in Europe whilst on holiday (it lists POI etc). Wouldn't be without it. Better than a phone as you don't need to pay to roam!
Summary: I bought this to replace my Garmin Etrex, its better and has more features, but only comes with a base map. I downloaded some Os map areas from the Garmin website, but it costs a fortune and your only buying small sections at a time. Ok for price (but no maps preinstalled)
Summary: After doing a fair bit of research I ended up ordering this dakota 20 gps primarily for geocaching. After getting the uk maps on sd card it's an ideal geocaching tool. For the price I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a handheld gps.
Summary: This is a good if not quite great GPS. Very fast to find first fix. Has all I need for navigation, route following and tracking where you've been - map display, trip information and sunrise /set times. Lots of extras on board. The initial map is terrible so you will need some maps.
Summary: Works fine bought it to replace our etex h downloaded the open maps as per an earlier review. Got the bike mount for it which could be better but does the job as long as you don't try to adjust the angle of it while riding with the gps inserted when I did this the gps came flying off at about 20mph...
Summary: I was considering to buy Garmin Edge for cycling but finally decided to go with Dakota as it's much cheaper. It was a great choice. With RAM mount this device is simply must buy for every cyclist. You can manage your GPX tracks very easily.
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.
Summary: An excellent item. As a geologist a GPS is often vital. This ticks all the boes Quick to aquire a signal, accurate at nearly all times, even under tree cover. Paperless Geocaching is easy to use and effective.
