    I love this GPS. The touch screen is great and its very user friendly. Its durable, accurate, and very handsome. The compass is wonderful, i dont even have to take a step and it already can tell me where to go. I use it for geocaching mainly, but have also taken it hiking and biking. It maps the trail for later download. It is not too heavy and it is a very handsome unit. I love garmin products and this one is spot on. Some reviews say the back light isnt very good inside and it is a little dark but not enough to worry about - no one is hiking, biking, geocaching or lost inside. It has been accurate every time, even in cloudy, rainy weather and in the mountains. Paperless caching is a breeze! I wouldnt have any other unit. It has lots of features that i never thought i would want/need, but they are great to have. For the price, i would definitely buy the Dakota 20 again.

    Useless Instructions.

    I can't use the product.The GPS is easy to see when outside and seems to pick up the signal rather rapidly. I think it is poor management to not send directions with the unit....Read complete review

    I can't use the product.The GPS is easy to see when outside and seems to pick up the signal rather rapidly. I think it is poor management to not send directions with the unit. The person who writes them should know how to teach in a language that is easyly understand. There should be a definition section with the directions. I now have money tied up in a unit that is of no use to me.

        Did alot of research and found this product. Turned out to be better than I expected! I've used it on new hunting grounds and actually on a road trip as well. Got me there and back every time. Using it to mark ice fishing spots this weekend-I know it will work great!

                  Comments about Garmin Dakota 20 Handheld GPS Package:

                  I am a Beginner and wanted this for Geocaching and day hikes with the kids. My husband is military trained in Orienteering...would consider an expert. This GPS is easy enough for me to use when I am out with the kids alone, but has enough features for my husband to "play" and feel challenged, especially if I am relying on him to get us home. Love it!
