Dakota 20 ok with osm?

Posted by Chaos99 on 21 June 2010 in English (English)

Owning an eTrex Legend HCx myself, I nevertheless recommented a Dakota 20 to a friend in search for a GPSd for osm and geocaching.

Can anyone confirm that the Dakota 20 works well with the standard downloadable osm maps for garmin (like the ones from Computerteddy or the AllInOne Garmin Map)?

I would also be happy about any other comments regarding the use of the Dakota 20.
Whats the real uptime on one battery charge for example?

Thanks anyway

Works just fine with the OSM Garmin All in one map, sorry i never tried Computerteddys maps. Uptime is about 8 hours with rechargeable batteries (2700 mAh batteries).

Dakota 20 device is absolutely suitable for all OSM related things ;)
The user interface is completely different from the one on the eTrex series, but you'll get used to it quickly.
