  • Summary: I bought and took back a ETREX 20 from a local store. The map that comes with it only shows Interstate roads and bigger state highways. No secondary or township roads. If lost you would find your way to a big road.

Too complicated for me.

Molyneux, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: My opinion - too complicated. I returned it. Having said that, if I understood all the "hiking language" and knew how to plan trips using a paper map and compass, probably this would work. Guess I'm just used to "Google Maps" and a TomTom GPS in the car and maps on my smart phone.

  • Summary: The unit is too complicated, and did not come with detailed instruction. I was able to get what I need from an app on my Android, and it only cost me $4.99. I could have gotten the app for free, but the ads are annoying. I returned the unit.

Too much of a learning curve for me

R H, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm not new to GPS devices; I've had a few in my day and know the basic ins and outs. But I've spent a month on Garmin's website and forums trying to learn how to use this thing and still can't figure it out. Most of the functionality requires using the Garmin software - "Basecamp".

Works. . . but could be improved

rusheleven, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: I really don't like touch screens so I opted out of the Dakota series. Wish I wouldn't have. The knob for controlling the interface is annoying as all get out. Can't operate it while wearing gloves and it activates while in my pocket (really garmin? no button lock?).

If you have a smart phone......!!!

Hiking, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • Summary: I was expecting a better screen. If you have a smart phone, go to download a hiking app and you will happy with a nice screen and very easy to use. Maybe you would prefer to buy a good water-proof case for your phone, auxiliary battery and free app.

  • Summary: This is a nice little toy. But be prepared to buy, or subscribe to buy, maps. The map shown on the unit in all the sales literature does NOT come with the it. All you get, out of the box, is a blank screen with a few lines on it. They call that the "base map.
