Apart from that it is very intuitive and easy to use

  • Summary: I'd rate it at 5 Stars but for fingers my size (large) it is a bit cumbersome. Apart from that it is very intuitive and easy to use. I have been Geocaching with it and have as yet not even opened the users manual. I'd recommend it.

Perfect for geocaching

  • Summary: I have now had many geocaching adventures with this garmin. It is straightforward and easy to use. I have moved around the country and it is somewhat of a pain to load all of the maps, but it is simple enough.

wonderful

  • Summary: I bought this GPS to use when we go hiking and when we ride our atv in the mountains. I like everything about it. I have never used a GPS before but this one was easy to learn. Everyone told me to get a Garmin and they were right. I just love the touch screen and it fits in my pocket perfect.

  • Summary: Great little handheld GPS unit that I carry with me on hikes and walks. It even has great use in the car and there is a network of Garmin users out there who share maps.

Glad I bought it; Touch-screen is terrific!

R. Jones, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: I kayak in Florida and Puget Sound and a GPS helps navigate routes. I finally decided to upgrade from my Garmin Etrex Venture HC and saw this Dakota 20 on sale at Best Buy. It was the last unit on hand, a display model, no box, badly scratched from where the security holder bit into the unit.

Easy to use

  • Summary: I like the Dakota because of the touchscreen ability. I got used to my smart phone so this just feels like an extension of that technology. Not the fanciest of GPS's, but it more than adequate for anyone who doesn't have to have extraordinary options from such a device.

SCREEN IS WAY TOO DIM - BARELY READABLE IN BRIGHT SUNLIGHT

B. Herder "YouTube: bradtube1", Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: One might be a little harsh as everything about this unit is great EXCEPT THE SCREEN! It's TERRIBLY DIM on battery power and very difficult to read in direct sunlight. Find a Garmin with a "sunlight readable" screen or I suspect you'll regret buying this (as I did).

Have been using this GPS for mountain biking and hiking for over 3 years

Via Cancion, Amazon
15 October 2013
  • Summary: Very rugged construction, rubberized finish, water resistant. Can mount on the bike and the belt (for hiking) using optional Garmin mounts. Comes only with a basemap but can upload many maps freely available online including Garmin maps (which are not free).

Dakota excellent

Jorge Brocca, Amazon
9 October 2013
  • 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.
