Summary: After returning two other gps units to a store I purchased the garmin dakota and love it.With the touch screen features it was very easy to use.I purchased the topo maps and it works well on the lake I live on.The value of this purchase was great as it is a refurb but it looks new and works new.i am very satisfied with this garmin dakota.
Summary: The gps works great for the hiking and the geocaching that I do. The only con I found is that the screen is hard to read, but not really a con I guess for a $150 unit. The batteries last great until you turn the back light on. But other than that this gps is awesome.
Summary: A freind of mine had this Dakota 20 gps and it looked good.I like the touchscreen and the different menus,the large easy to read color screen,different options and its nice small size.It is great for geocaching and i like the new "chirp" feature.I did not like the way it does waypoints.Sometimes it is hard to follow the waypont directions.For the price compared to others it is excellent.
Summary: I bought this GPS for my husband's birthday. After researching a variety of handhelds, this is the one he chose. We hike anywhere from four to fifteen miles on the weekend. Now we can have an accurate account of the trail distance which is not always accurate on the markers. The kids love checking out the maps and how far we have hiked. Quality wise,we haven't had a trouble one with it. Its also good for geocaching with the kiddos. We are very pleased with this purchase.
