Summary: This unit does not have a SD memory slot. This limits the type of maps available to use. This is not explained to well with the product description. Garmin is too proprietary and I wasted a lot of time learning this.
Summary: I've owned several different GPS handheld units and this has been the easiest and user friendly one yet. For the price you get so many different features and abilities. I use mine for Geocaching; and with the intergration with the website this unit is perfect for it. This handheld is worth way more than the price and you'll be happy with your purchase.
Very Helpful, Can't do without it. Makes measuring areas simple.

Summary: Works wonderfully. I am using it to measure fields. Very easy to use, just hit computer start and drive the outer boundary and hit stop You don't even have to complete the circle. The last point back to the starting point is calculated for you. Should have bought one much earlier.
Summary: My wife bought me a Dakota 10, so I am now stuck with what is an inferior piece of technology. The display is so small that it is hard to use if you have fingers larger than a toddler's. As an added bonus, the display is hard to view legibly-and yet it is so badly engineered that it still manages to burn through batteries like cord wood..
Summary: Touch screen works really well. Several profiles that can have separate settings for different activities is really nice. It is generally pretty accurate even under tree cover and such. The USB transfer ability is great, especially for geocaching or map transfer. There are better units out there but if you're on a budget, this is a FANTASTIC item for the price.
Summary: We tried out a Garmin Oregon 450, which is really top of the line. But we're just looking to geocache with it so we don't need all the bells and whistles. Takes a little longer to acquire the satellite, but it's worth the savings. The touch screen is nice and it's a good sign put in our pocket. We're having a lot of fun with it so Mom just bought one of her own.
Summary: Four months ago, my son and I began geocaching with a Garmin eTrex Legend. Great little unit and it was doing us well. I was, however, generating enough paper to kill a forest or two. Recently I made the decision to move to paperless caching and began looking for a good, affordable unit that would meet our needs and reduce our paper production.
Summary: I ordered this for my husband who hunts. It came topo maps, but we could only download for one state. Wish it had more internal memory, or maybe I should have upgraded to the unit with the card memory.
