Wanted to Love It

T. Myers, Amazon
2 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought the Dakota 20 expecting to love it. It had been released by Garmin about a year before so I thought all of the "teething" problems would be resolved by now. Apparently not. At first things were great. This was my first hand held GPS and there was a lot to learn.

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.

Tough little GPS

Melba Toast "daredchef", Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: I was skeptical about the Dakota 10 by Garmin because it lacked the SD card port and also lack of compass, but I found that the memory was more then sufficient. I've loaded (being piggish) the entire West Coast topo maps + marine Maps + Navigator city in this unit and no problems.

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!

Good, but not great

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 April 2010
  • Summary: After reading many positive reviews about the features and ease of the touchscreen but also about the visibility problems with the screen, I decided to take a chance and upgrade my aging monochrome eTrex Legend.

Great concept, horrendous reliability, poor accuracy.

Amazon
26 January 2010
  • Summary: Before I even start: A lot of times when one reads a critical review they try to dismiss it; the reviewer is an idiot, just had bad luck, has an axe to grind with the company, or just likes writing negative reviews.

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...

WARNING: Does not work with bike accessories!

videogameguy2 "videogameguy2", Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: Warning: despite the name "Bike and Hike Bundle" this device does NOT work with the Garmin cycling accessories like Speed/Cadence sensor and Heart Rate strap. They crippled it. The next model up, the Dakota 20, DOES work with the bike add-ons (but is not offered in the "bike and hike" bundle).
