Great little GPS!

My family uses this for hiking, camping, and geocaching. It has a high sensitivity receiver so it can still grab a signal in all of the densely forested areas we've taken it to. The TOPO map software we got with it works as well as possible (old USGS data for my area unfortunately - we have a large 20 yr old manmade lake where a stream is indicated). It's light, waterproof, and has the anti-glare screen so reading in the daytime is a snap. Lot's of nice features (paperless geocaching, tracks, etc.) made this a good buy. Roads are clearly marked for driving to a location, but I don't think this would be a good replacement for my automotive GPS (no vocal directions, roads not up to date at times, not exactly hands-free for that application). But my 12-yr old co-pilot works out just fine. You can live without the digital compass (just start moving and you know the direction north is in) and altimeter (you don't need a reading if you can see your position on topographical maps). Personally I'd like to see the pricepoint go down on all handheld GPS's, but this one is pretty good for your money. It's size is just a bit thicker than my cellphone, and it syncs with the "BASEMAP" software easily via USB. For the poor cousin of the Dakota 20, this one is not too shabby in my view.

no gold but alive

After purchasing the "Garmin dakota 10 gps" I went on a gold prospecting adventure in the wilds of Arizona on a very hot day. I figured out how to put in the coordinates and find the claim I was looking for. After much digging and no gold, I started to leave but had no idea which way to get out? I had not read the book on the gps or watched the video I bought with it (not to smart) I was surprised to find how easy it was to back track and find the same trail out of the area that I came in on. Wow I would not have lasted long in the 100+ temp and would not be alive today if not for the ease of using the Dakota 10 gps. thanks Cabelas and Garmin. When I returned I found the gps in the new sale book for less money and Cabelas promptly credited the difference to my card, thanks again.

Not without issues

I bought this to load Michigan snowmobile trail maps onto it and using it snowmobiling. That is the main purpose that I am using this for. The 3rd day of owning this, the unit's screen would blank out after the startup screen. I had to go to the Garmin website Forums section to upgrade the software on it. After doing that, it took 3 startup attempts for the patch to load up and the unit to function again. The road maps that come with this are basic - only the Michigan interstates and 'M-' designated roads are shown. You need to get the Topo maps if you want the rest of the roads to show up. The other main complaint I had with this has to do with the Topo maps and Garmin's application to load these maps onto the GPS - the documentation for the maps/application was very lacking - and didn't launch or create a desktop shortcut on my Vista computer when installed. The TOPO (eventhough dated 2009) didn't list compatibility with Dakota series. I didn't know for certain if this TOPO would work with my unit. I managed to load the Topo maps in addition to the snowmobile maps (which I found online through a non-Garmin source) onto my unit, but had to figure it out on my own. I selected "recommend to a friend", but probably would rather select "undecided" if that was a recommendation choice.

Disappionted - had to buy duplicate software

I like the GPS unit itself - I find it intuitive to use and it does everthing I need it to do while using it on my snowmobiles or ATVs. In fact, I liked this model so much this purchase was for an identical unit to one I already own. What I didn't know at the time was that the detailed street maps that have to be purchased seperately will only work on a single GPS. So now that I have a second unit I have to purchase duplicate software in order to use it. I seriously considered returning the GPS once I found this out. I'm still not sure the additional cost is worth the convienence of owning a second unit. I would think Garmin would come up with a way to liscense it's software to use on multiple units registered to the same owner. This will certainly discourage me from purchasing any additional units for my family.
