Garmin Dakota 20 GPS receiver

orangecrush1962, Ebay
29 November 2010
  • Summary: Though the title says Dakota 10, it was a Dakota 20 I purchased. I purchased used off ebay with receipts showing it not even a month old. Other than using GPS's in smart phones and the like, I don't have a lot of experience with necc. features. I did a fair amount of research and based on reviews like this one, features and pricing, I went with the Dakota 20 GPS unit. The unit is small enough to put in your pocket, it's waterproof and easy to read.

Geocaching with Garmin

over60, Amazon
19 November 2010
  • Summary: Liked this GPS unit very much, only function it lacked ( that I wanted ) was an electronic compass. After a few days use I returned it and bought the Dakota 20 with the electronic compass. Only reature I would add to the Garmin products would be a rechargable battery.

Great like unit

  • Summary: First hand held GPS. I'm happy with it. I just wish Garmin wouldn't nickel and dime us.
  • Pros: Touch screen, lite weight, easy to use, 20 hrs battery, color screen. 850mb memory. Perfect for Geo-caching. It will give location, terrain, difficulty, hints and description.
  • Cons: The unit can do birds eye view ( $30 a year)

Super fantastic!!! This is truly a best buy

  • Summary: This is my favorite GPS to have owned. It is user friendly but can do alot of complicated work when needed. There is the best friend to any Geocacher and make for a party all on it's own.

Good Geocaching GPS

Scorpion Patrol, Amazon
18 May 2010
  • Summary: I like the paperless caching. Accuracy is not as good as the 60Cx but is much better than the E-Trex. The maps (which cost extra) are not as good as the Delorme PN 30 (which comes with it), but the battery life is much better.

Have to buy software to use this!

T-mo customer, Amazon
6 May 2010
  • Summary: The map this unit comes with is VERY basic! It has only major highways. So right out of the box this unit is useless for any type of navigation, especially outdoors. Garmin wants you to buy maps from them! Even though you can find them and download some for free, you have to buy software like Mapsource to install those maps! Now why would you pay this much money for a device that is completely useless out of the box???

Easiest to use handheld yet

Warren Merrill, Amazon
13 December 2009
  • Summary: I recently decided to start spending some time geocaching with my son. I finally settled on either the Geomate, Jr., the Garmin Dakota, Garmin Oregon or DeLorme PN-40. I asked questions at forums, looked at on-line reviews, checked out the ones I could find in stores (Oregon and PN-20) and finally decided on either the Dakota 10 (a great price on a bundle was the big attraction at the time) or the Oregon 300.

Garmin Dakota Pros and Cons

Angel_Pen "angel_rising", Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: First Impressions: This unit has some nice features but the one thing it does NOT have is a "sunlight readable" screen, all Garmin "touch screen" models are much harder to read in the sun compared to the eTrex or 60Csx type models (regretfully these models are also very complex to use). The main advantage of this Dakota unit is that it is better for paperless geocaching because it does display tips.

Excellent GPS hardware + software package, with a few small weaknesses

19 August 2006
  • Summary: Consider buying this as an inexpensive, highly portable alternative to a stand-alone dedicated GPS for your car if you have a Palm or Pocket PC PDA.
  • Pros: Excellent integration of hardware with 5 separate robust applications and map database
  • Cons: Many minor weaknesses in the software feature set
