  • Summary: Well... some things just seem too good to be true. And they are. Here are the issues- 1. MAC users: if you do not have OS10.8 installed you will not be able to download maps to this GPS.

I hate this gps

Jenny Kronberg, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: I got this so that I would quit eating my data and battery on my iPhone. Frankly, I hate this gps. The screen is too small. It's also not easy to get going with and set up. The set up is a huge challenge, especially since the owners manual only comes on disk.

Disappointed

Paulette J. Henderson, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • Summary: We were disappointed in the product because after we purchased it, we found out that maps were not available for it. Really, why have a GPS for sale with no maps available? Seems silly to me. So, we returned it and bought the Dakta 20.

My Dakota 20

kcdave, Amazon

  • Summary: Ease of Use Gave it 2 star mainly for the screen resolution and brightness. The maps look ok, once I purchased a 24K map, but the menu and text is VERY grainy. Text font is hard to read. Even with the brightness turned up all the way its very hard for me to read the screen.

WARNING: Does not work with bike accessories!

  • 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).

Pay extra and buy a better model.

carparkmark, Tesco
29 June 2013
  • Summary: Pretty useless unless you are willing to spend lots of extra money on maps. Comes with basic mapping showing trunk roads only. Also doesn't give latitude and longitude co-ordinates.
