Only problem....unit's compass needle.

Brad, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: I really like this unit but didn't give it 5 stars because when navigating to a waypoint the GPS compass often jumps around erratically. I understand that the unit needs to get its bearings and that the satellite reception is going to be in and out while navigating through the woods but I have had the compass rotate 90-180 degrees every 20-30 feet for a quarter mile or more while I am trying to get a direction of travel.

Garmin-you have a problem!

jazz lover since 1960, Amazon

  • Summary: I returned my Dakota 20 for a refund after one day of frustration and got an Oregon 450t, which is working great. There are serious defects with the Dakota. They are reported frequently online. Type in "Dakota 20 power up problems", and you will see what I mean. This leads me to recommend that you not buy this model. When I received it, it powered up fine, Then I connected it to my computer to download my topo maps.

Very accurate and great value.

9709lonnie, Ebay
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I use my Dakota 10 to mark my deer stands. I always know where they are but having so many out in the woods some are hard to find in the dark. The Dakota 10 will take me right to the tree. I think the battery life is a little short, and I don't believe I get the 20 hours they say you should get. Fairly easy to use you just need to play with it some. It really is a great value.

Love this little gadget

rolfdenver, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: I'd heard great reviews about the Dakota; my one concern was whether the "10" version - which doesn't offer SD card expansion - would have enough memory. It's proved to have plenty enough memory for my purposes, including storing topo maps for three states and several dozen geocache descriptions.

Just enough GPS for my daily work out.

catskyer, Amazon

  • Summary: I use this for my daily nordic walking work out. I keep distance, pace, and total time on the big display. Set up is easy. Clearing the data each day is simple. Start up time is quick compared to my old Fortrex 201. The touch screen is much better than the button combinations on the 201.

Ease of use, but complicated

Boundary Waters Bill, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for a trip to Quetico- the Canadian boundary waters, so I haven't really used it yet. I do like the touch screen and the fast pick up of the signal and the fact that it gets that signal when I'm in cover. But I'm having trouble figuring out how to load stuff on it and how to enter long/lat coordinates.

  • Summary: Spend the extra money and get a Montana 600. The screen is to small to see any detail unless you zoom way in.
