I already have a Garmin Nuvi in my car which is easy to use.
I wanted something easy to use/navigate that was waterproof and could record hiking trail distances and get me back to the car or campsite. As well as be useful in having satellite signal where my phone seemed to drop signal. This one seems to work quite well.
Intuitive- easy to move around the menus and get to what you want.
have had no issues with screen glare
can set a waypoint (such as car), clear the current track (it seems to always be tracking when it's on) take your hike, when you're ready to go back, hit "where to" select the saved car waypoint, and the map will show a line to the car. you can then go to the compass screen and it will show you a directional arrow and distance to that waypoint (car)
seems quite accurate
many free topo maps available online, such as gpsfiledepot.com
basecamp (garmin's GPS interface) is pretty easy to use, still figuring out the bells and whistles, easy to download the gpsfiledepot maps onto the device
*has not done a good job with auto navigation - receiving errors that there are no navigable routes in the map. probably because I haven't bought Garmin's city maps - but I don't intend to since I have the Nuvi unit for that, and typically use my phone's Waze app for car navigation.
*Topo maps from Garmin are expensive/overpriced. They may install easier, but it'd cost a fortune to buy topo maps for the whole US.
*is limited (apparently thru Garmin's Basecamp software) to 4GB mini SD card of map storage. I currently have a 32GB SD card in mine, however the basecamp software only allows up to the 4GB- unsure why they would have this limitation
*Actual GPS internal storage is insufficient (I believe 850MB)
*If you do buy maps direct from Garmin, be aware that the downloads are only good for the specific device and are not transferable, where as receiving the maps on the SD card, they can be moved to other devices (but not copied). So if you bought maps and downloaded them and the GPS died or you upgraded, you'd have to buy the maps again, where as if you purchased them on the SD format you could just move the card to the new device.
Took it ice fishing and cracked the glass for the touch screen while in my coats pocket. The fix is $110 with or without warranty. I would consider investing in a hard case to protect your investment.
I hope I provided an unbiased and helpful review. Good luck shopping and as always, have a great day.
When I received it, it powered up fine, Then I connected it to my computer to download my topo maps. My computer would not recognize the Dakota after numerous attempts. Then the Dakota just shut off, and wouldn't come back on. I called the Garmin support staff, and the guy suggested a couple of remedies that didn't work. Since the computer wouldn't recognize the Dakota, there was no way to the update the software. I'm not sure that would have helped anyway. He also couldn't tell me how to keep the Dakota powered on so we could work with it. We were dead in the water! So the support guy said I should return the Dakota to where I bought it for refund. Notice that he didn't say to send it to Garmin for service, because he probably knew it would be a waste of time and money. So if they can't fix it, what gives?
After this, I read the reviews and forums more closely, and sure enough, many many people have reported identical problems where the Dakota just shuts off or powers off and can't be turned on again. Also people have reported problems connecting to their computer. Some people have these problems immediately. Others have them after they had the Dakota for a few weeks or months. I'm glad I had them immediately, because what if they happened when I was in the woods, and I could have gotten lost. .
If Garmin's own user forums report these problems there must be serious problems.
I thought I had done my research. I bought the Dakota after reading many positive reviews. I'm glad for the people who have no problems. I wanted the lowest price touch screen unit. I usually don't give serious consideration to 1 star reviews because those people usually have expectations that are too unrealistic. But from now on, I will read those negative reviews more closely. I don't blame the seller, because the package was delivered sealed like new.
If it deserves one star, it is because I enjoyed the touch screen feature. The touch screen is so much better than the hard- to- work buttons on the 2 previous Garmins I owned. I then bought the touch screen equipped Oregon 450t for about $50 more, and love it. I've used it alot in the past few weeks, and it works perfectly, and has several better features.
I really believe Garmin is selling a lemon, and should fix the problem or take it off the market.
