Freeze!

intrnst, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm an old user, decades, of the very reliable eTrex family. I bought this for a friend and few weeks later it came back with this "Memory Full" -- it wasn't. Just google "Dakota 20 power up problems". Long story short, I managed to unfreeze it and did a firmware update.

Good Price, Jury is still out

Jim "scruffyboy", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the Dakota 10 bike/hike bundle for my bicycle. After looking at FAR more expensive bike-specific units I decided this would probably have the features I wanted at a more reasonable price.

Garmin Dakota

  • 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. Otherwise, he likes it and is finding it easy to use, though he is not a tech guy,

User Review

  • Summary: For hiking with small fingers this would be an excellent gps and for driving with sharp eyesight. The topo maps show up clearly both 100k and 24k though you could get by with 100k with regular maps as backup. The 24k tends to get muddled.

  • Summary: Pros: Good for a new user, AA batteries, Small (fits in your hand well) Cons: Touch screen, screen is a little small, not for someone looking for a precise GPS I was looking forward to my new GPS, I couldn't wait to get it. I love to go hiking and biking and this was going to be great.

Garmin Software Negative

  • Summary: I just received my new Dakota 20 and plan to use it primarily for geocaching. I discovered that it will neither send or receive caches, tracks, waypoints, etc. with Garmin MapSource mapping software.

Dakota GPS is good, base map sucks

John Blevins "Max", Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: The device is good, the base map sucks! I think the Dakota GPS device is great, but the base map (for trekking purposes) is essentially worthless. Apparently Garmin makes all their profits on selling us overly expensive maps.

Watch which accessories you buy

Kenneth J. Teicher "Ken", Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: I just purchased the Dakota 20 along with a few accessories. I read through the user manual on line and reviewed the list of accessories on the Garmin site. I bought a 16GB Micro SD and a Garmin battery charger that connects directly to the unit via USB. Be aware!

Problem with Bike mount

R. Lim "Cyclist", Amazon
25 October 2009
  • Summary: I have bought and used Garmin GPS for like forever. They are great for most applications. I have used the GPS 12, GPSmap76 ,Nuvi and the latest one I got is the Dakota 20. Out of the box it was great. Small and really portable. Nice screen, a little dim though but nothing to fret. Visibility is ok.
