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.
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: This is a small light weight and easy to us gps.I use it the plot my movements while hunting on my lease and mark areas were I see deer signs like scraps and rubs ext.the battery life is exceptional.
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. It is a nice mix a features not to much or to little
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.
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...
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!
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.
