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.
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...
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.
Summary: I bought the Garmin Dakota 10 for as much as the Dakota 20 sells for now :( but that is the price for being 'first on your block' yes in hindsight I think the 20 may be worth the extra money but for me the D-10 is really cool along with loaded street software I can plan routes on the Garmin website...
Summary: I bought the Dakota 20 about two years ago and liked the interface and the functions, I have taken well care of it an it has never been dropped or even wet. Out of a sudden it will not start up but just freeze. After googling the net I have learned that this seemes more common than uncommon.
Summary: I purchased this little GPS after becoming sick and tired of getting turned around scouting and hunting public property. This GPS has the ability to be everything you could ever need and more. You can download Topographic Maps, Public Land Maps, and Bird's Eye View Maps onto it.
Summary: For the average outdoorsman who doesn't want to take a class to learn how to use their unit, this is the "real deal" !! Inexpensive, small, bright color screen and self explanatory with the "touch screen" !! I absolutely love it....FANTASTIC !!
