Disappointed

Paulette J. Henderson, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: We were disappointed in the product because after we purchased it, we found out that maps were not available for it. Really, why have a GPS for sale with no maps available? Seems silly to me. So, we returned it and bought the Dakta 20.

Dakota GPS

CH, Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: Very small viewing screen that often did not respond to the touch. The display of Latitude and Longitude is smaller than useful in field biology work. I'm not interested in continuing the use of this GPS.

  • Summary: Garmin's program to upload maps to the Dakota did not work so I used another program mapuploader. Once I learned how to get the info into the device it worked nice and display is visible in full sun wearing sunglasses.

Would I buy another? I did!

l j simon, Amazon
3 October 2012
  • Summary: The eTrex Venture HC had been made useless by a recommended update that went bad. Garmin would fix it for $99 or an eTrex 10 could be ordered for a few dollars more. Truth is: I've already got an Oregon 400T and a Dakota 20 and my wife uses her own Dakota 10. We're spoiled by "paperless" geocaching. This purchase represents unnecessary spending. It is a SPARE. I carry it when I don't *plan* to do any geocaching ... but what if there's one really close by?

Love This GPS

Sierra Hiker, Amazon
26 September 2012
  • Summary: This is a great, simple GPS that has just the right bells and whistles. I print my Topos, so I don't depend on the GPS maps on the device, but it lets me know the info I need (elevation, trip info, time of day, direction and bearings) and allows me to mark where I took my pics and where I take my breaks. Then I can make my notes one my maps when I'm at home. If you depend on GPS maps, you will need to find a more versatile unit, but its great for what I need.

better than expected

GWO, Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: After using the Garmin Etrex Legend for years, and loving it, I was afraid to switch to something new. But the Dakota 10 is fantastic. The touch-screen is so much easier to use than the buttons on the older models. Also, this is so much more sensitive. I can get signals from inside my house! With the Etrex I had to keep it in my hand, and in deep woods it would still lose the signal sometimes. I can put the Dakota 10 in my pocket as I hike and it doesn't miss a step.

Does not work

Marty H. K. Yuen "Marty", Amazon
22 August 2012
  • Summary: After buying this product, I had to buy a subscription to download maps (not the problem; just wanted to inform consumers about this). The problem is that after a couple of weeks of test runs before traveling, it stopped working. It will not turn on. It has warranty, but now i have to mail it to the manufacturer, and provide a stamped return package. Ended up not using it for my travels after investing about $180 (product + map subscription).

Dim and grainy display

Robert K. Harvey "BobH", Amazon
30 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought a Dakota 10 for my wife's bicycle. I have been using a 76csx since it was introduced and love it. The76csx has a few more features and is significantly larger and more expensive (if you can still find one as they have been discontinued) than the Dakota for approximately the same screen size. The big disadvantage of the Dakota in comparison to the 76csx is that the display is grainy and dim. In most lighting conditions it is very difficult to view.

Tried twice. Broke Twice.

Kattiebird, Amazon
29 May 2012
  • Summary: I really liked this GPS. It was small and had the touch screen to make for easy use. I do a lot of cycling, so the bike bundle was perfect. The first one I bought worked great, up until the night before a large cycling tour that was about 400 miles long. Surprisingly enough it was working just two days before hand, then it just suddenly wouldn't turn on any longer. (It never had any large drops and I was never exceedingly rough with it.
