Summary: Purchased for our scout group for GeoCaching and supporting map and compass work. The units work well and have a 12+ hour life on a new set of rechargeable batteries. The price through Amazon couldn't be beaten and they were delivered well packaged and tracked.
Summary: I am really happy with the Garmin Dakota 10 GPs. I wanted a GPs that I could go paperless with when geocaching as printing off all this information was time consuming and wasteful....the Garmin Dakota 10 was perfect for this.
Summary: I had read that the installed map was not very good but was surprised to find that it was practically non-existent. Apparently Brighton only has two roads, one east-west and one north-south. The South Downs don't even exist!
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this item, and I found it hard to understand the huge range of comments. Some raved about it and some loathed it. However, trusting Amazon's return policy, I took the plunge. When it arrived, I hated it! It felt clunky and outdated.
Summary: I have to add I trust Garmin as I have used several products over the years! But this is compact, light weight and easy to use. Especially by my young children, a must for any family, well worth the in expense!
