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.

Wow! I'm impressed!

  • Excerpt: UPDATE: This unit is out of production. It connects with a serial cord, seems like Garmin is all USB
  • Pros: All the capability of the E Trex plus sufficient map storage. Low price.
  • Cons: Non-captive battery cover. Should COME WITH optional soft plastic case/cover. Won't work in dense woods.
