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.

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.

Wife likes it for geocaching

JHwang, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: My wife wanted this model after taking a geocaching class. It works fine, but she can be frustrated with the controls. She also recommends a wide neck strap as it is not light (for your neck). Works fine with Eneloop rechargeable batteries, but reports a low battery nearly all the time).

  • Summary: The dakota 20 starts up fast and is very easy to use.I like the size of it and it's simplicity. I would have given it 5 stars if it had the "go to" choice like my old one. It is very accurate too. This is perfect for the hiker, hunter, and fisherman. Garmin Dakota 20 Waterproof Hiking GPS

Works Great

  • Summary: The receiver is very sensitive, often able to maintain a lock even inside buildings. The screen is slightly dimmer and harder to read than non-touch screen models but the touch screen features makes controlling the unit easier and more intuitive.

Love this little unit

Greg, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: I at first hesitated to buy this GPS unit. I was one of the first people to buy a Colorado when they came out and I was so disappointed with that unit for Geocaching that I sent it back and lost $50 on restock. So when I saw this unit come out I was not sold.

Glad I bought it; Touch-screen is terrific!

  • 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.

Great GPS Poor Manual

C3, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: A LOT has already been said about this unit and it is very valuable. All I am going to add is my initial impression as someone who hasn't bought a new trail GPS in 10 years. I am familiar with Topo navigation and basic GPS operation.
