GarminGarmin Dakota 20 review at LetsGoMobile : The Garmin Dakota 20 is sort of a smaller version of the Oregon. It’s about € 50 cheaper, but that does not mean that it is of lower quality, nor that it offers less possibilities. Choices have been made that will appeal to different user groups. I think it would be a good partner for a cycling tourist. I traveled to South Africa with the Garmin Dakota 20, and I ran into things that were out of the ordinary.

LetsGoMobile adds: "The screen has a lower resolution than the Oregon-series. They have a 3-inch display with 240 x 400 pixels while the Dakota 20 has a 2.6-inch screen with 160 x 240 pixels. The details are comparable with the “old” GPS map 60-series but it is better than the one in the Edge. I think that makes the position of the Garmin Dakota device clear. For use in the car, the display is a bit on the small side, but for cycling and walking the dimensions are big enough. Because it has more general applications than the Garmin Edge-series, this GPS navigation device will certainly capture the attention of the touristic user."

LetsGoMobile continues: "The Dakota 20 includes a basic world map. Due to the short amount of time we had before departure, there was no detailed map available for South Africa, so we had to make do with the World Wide Base map. There was no street information or POI of the area. Still, I was surprised by the standard information present. Not only the highways are indicated, but also many other roads and relatively small towns. They do have to be of regional importance. Of course we can add more map material. There will be few users that cannot find suitable map material. Navigating the car to a beautiful hiking area and then switching to a topographical map is no problem."

LetsGoMobile concludes: "For our trip to South Africa, the Garmin Dakota 20 was a fine travel companion. It is too bad that we did not have a map set available, but this caused our attention to be focused on the bare device. Even in the standard version there are enough applications. The Garmin Dakota GPS receiver device was taken on all trips and that was easy to execute. The dimensions never made it a burden. I would even dare to say that it is a very useful tool for the active tourist. And that was even when it was not equipped with a map with the corresponding POI."
