The Garmin Dakota 20 GPS worked just great (Notice the past tense). Love the touch screen. Very easy to navigate and work. I purchased the Hunting Topog chip and that worked great as well. Now the sad part. I was burning slash, had the GPS in my shirt pocket with the lanyard hanging out and somehow the GPS fell to the ground and hooked on a piece of slash that I threw into the fire. I didn't see it happen so it took me awhile to figure out what happened. Needless to say, I was sick about it, because I loved that GPS.
The product and service were both excellent.
This little thing does a lot of cool stuff. It has a bunch of accessories you can use with it, like a beacon and a heart rate monitor (probably best for trail running). I just use it to track where I've been and such, but it works great. It's nice and small. I've dropped it a few times on accident and it hasn't been affected by it at all. I like that it's waterproof, but I'm glad I haven't had to find out how waterproof it is firsthand. Kind of a plus and a minus - it runs on AA batteries. It's great because you don't have to charge it, but also kind of a pain because if you want to recharge it you have to buy the extra batteries, and I'm not sure how expensive they are. Fairly inexpensive and great value if you ask me.
I bought this GPS for marking my turkey and elk hunting spots as well as for backpacking. I couldn't have asked for more from a GPS! it's small and lightweight but the screen is still big enough to read without my glasses. I was worried that it would be hard to read in the sun but I can see it a lot better than my cell phone screen. I just got the Montana mapping maps. I'm excited to try them out with it.
