Dakota: Easy-to-use Menu

Outdoor navigation meets touchscreen simplicity

User-friendly, versatile and full of features, the Dakota 10 is part of the Garmin touchscreen GPS range.

Use a Dakota to navigate your way on or off the beaten track: just choose a function on the screen, touch it and go. You can plot your trail, or save waypoints and favourite places via simple intuitive menus and big, bright, full-colour displays. It’s ideal for everyone and all types of outdoor adventures.

This rugged, palm-sized navigator not only boasts touchscreen navigation, it also has high-sensitivity GPS with HotFix satellite prediction, and a worldwide basemap in one affordable, power-packed punch.

Touch and Go

Dakota 10 makes outdoor navigation effortless with a tough, sunlight-readable, 2.6 inch colour touchscreen display. The interface is easy to use, so you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information.

Both durable and waterproof, Dakota 10 is built to withstand the elements: bumps, dust, dirt and water are no match for this rugged navigator. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction, Dakota 10 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy tree cover and deep canyons.

Use your GPS handheld to plan your route in advance of your expedition, and let it guide you on the trail. When you want to return to base, a special TracBack function will direct you all the way back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works fantastic as a sat nav for a push bike! 1 Feb 2013
By K Smith
This device exceeded my expectations, once configured correctly and with suitable maps installed. I use it on my bike, mounted on Locking Strap Motorcycle Bike Handlebar Mount for Garmin Dakota 10 & Dakota 20. I knew that I'd probably be able to program routes into the device but I never imagined it would be a fully functional sat nav for a bike, including prompts for the next turning, recalculating the route if you get lost and even directing you along cycle paths and bridleways as shortcuts! Here's a quick guide to achieving this. First replace the absolutely rubbish default map with a free one from Talky Toaster! The OS style map is probably best for cycling as it has more cycle paths marked. Go into your Dakota's setup menu and scroll down to the routing sub-menu and make sure it is set for "Calculate Routes for - Bicycle" and "Lock On Road - No" and "Off Roads Transitions - Auto". In urban areas, the "Guidance Method" is probably best left as "On Road For Distance" rather than "Off Road". Download and install Garmin BaseCamp on your home computer. This free program provides the easiest way to create your routes and mark your waypoints (make sure to select cycling as your mode of transport when making a route). Once you have transferred a route from BaseCamp to the Dakota you can activate it by selecting "Where to?" then choosing your route from the "Routes" menu. You can even edit the route in the Dakota and reverse it to find your way back home! I hope this info helps with using the Garmin Dakota 10 or 20 as a sat nav device for your bike!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't rate this highly enough 21 Sep 2010
This has been one of our best buys. We had a Garmin eTrex back from 10 years ago when these things were quite new, and as geocachers it wasn't quite getting the accuracy of coordinates that we needed. The Dakota 10 is very geocaching friendly and we can download caches straight from the website (we upgraded to premium membership for this). As other people say, the maps are a disgrace but having read the reviews here I went on to talkytoaster and easily loaded the free maps which make all the difference.

It's the bottom of the range as far as geocaching-ready GPSs go, but I am not sure that the extra money is worth the extra bells and whistles. With the Dakota 10 we have had amazing accuracy even in trees and tall buildings and it always finds the satellites quickly and easily - you can't ask for more than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far ,So good 31 July 2010
Verified Purchase
I wanted to go paperless with Geocaching so I bought this as a replacement for my Garmin ETrex Venture Hc.It does the job perfectly and I can geocache without reames of paper as it holds all the description of the caches, logs and hints for me to look at on screen.
It was good value for money offering paperless feature and additional features too.Other units with similar features were really expensive so this seemed a cost effective option.I at first wished I had shelled out the extra and got the Dakota 20 when I had realised The map I purchased at the same time was sd card and not the dvd I nneed to load onto Dakota 10,but It was not a problem sending it back and buying the correct Map software.

I have used it for a few days and what a Geocaching difference it has been - having cache descriptions, hints, logs and so on available on the unit.it's a big improvement from printing all the details.At first I had a little trouble as I was looking at the wrong reading as with my venture the reading for distance to cache was in a different position.Then I realised I can also customise these readings and positions to suit the way I want to see/read it.The 'Accuracy of GPS' field is helpful too when searching for that elusive cache to get an idea of where you need to look. I had to upgrade to be a Premium Member on the Ground speak website, but it's well worth the few 's. Once the Pocket Query [I did approx 100 caches in one go]results are copied into the relevant folder on the device, there are tons of caches and their information available at the touch of the screen.
It is user friendly and very neat and easy to carry and store on your person when not in use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Price helps with the Geocache-flow 13 Aug 2010
I bought this as I wanted to go paperless with Geocaching. It was the lowest cost Garmin product (my preferred manufacturer, no other reason) offering this feature and to be honest, the additional features of other units didn't justify their unbelievable costs; especially the Dakota 20. The extra money seems to go for an SD card slot, magnetic compass and pairing!!! Big deal. As you can connect to the Dakota 10 using USB, and it has over 800Mb of internal storage the SD card is not a requirement of mine. The compass works fine when moving, so that wasn't an essential need either.

I have been using it for a few days and what a Geocaching revelation it has been - having cache descriptions, hints, logs available on the unit is a HUGE improvement from printed or remembered details. The 'Accuracy of GPS' field is helpful too when searching for that elusive microcache to get an idea of where you need to look. You do have to upgrade to be a Premium Member on the Groundspeak website, but it's well worth the $30. Once the Pocket Query results are copied into the relevant folder on the device, there are tons of caches and their information available at the press of a few buttons. Plus, there are Premium Member only caches - nice.

The interface is nice and customisable and I especially like the way you can add/remove/reposition all the menu items per profile. The trip computer is great too as you can decide exactly what you want to see, as you can on the maps and compass too. As I am primarily a Geocacher rather than hiker/walker I have not explored the route/track options to a great degree, but they look good and I will be getting into them the more I get out and about.

Now - the downside. The basemap that comes with it is....well, it rhymes with 'map'.
