  • Features

    The Dakota 20 combines touchscreen technology with outdoor navigation, along with healthy doses of high-sensitivity GPS with HotFix satellite prediction, barometric altimeter, 3-axis electronic compass and microSD card slot.
    All in all, it’s a pretty amazing combination for one of the most powerful, affordable devices on the market.

    Easy and durable
    Your Dakota 20 features a durable, sunlight-readable 2.6-inch color touchscreen display. The simple interface means you'll spend more time admiring your surroundings and less time with your face buried in your GPS. Plus, the Dakota 20 stands up to Mother Nature’s surprises. Not only is it waterproof, it can withstand bumps, dust, dirt and water.

    Know exactly where you are
    Built into the Dakota 20 is a 3-axis electronic compass, which tells you where you are, even if you’re standing still or not holding it level. The barometric altimeter tracks pressure changes to pinpoint your precise altitude. Plus, you can use your Dakota 20 to plot barometric pressure over time to anticipate changing weather. Even in deep canyons or heavy cover, Dakota 20 uses its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction to find your position quickly and precisely.

    Attention geocachers
    Paperless geocaching is a breeze with the Dakota 20. You can easily download up to 2,000 caches with information such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints and description. That means you don’t need any more paper printouts, and you definitely don’t need to manually enter coordinates.

    Explore and conquer
    Dakota 20 gives you a built-in worldwide basemap, allowing you to navigate anywhere. And if you want to add more maps, just use Garmin’s detailed topographic, marine and road maps on microSD card.

    Go social
    Your Dakota 20 allows you to share your waypoints, tracks, geocaches and routes wirelessly with compatible Oregon, Dakota and Colorado and Foretrex users. All you have to do is press “send” to transfer your favorite route or geocache location.
