Garmin announces Dakota touchscreens

Garmin has announced two new touchscreen GPS navigators – the Dakota 10 and 20.

Andrew Silver, outdoor product manager for Garmin, said: “The Dakota series is perfect for exploring the outdoors – from peaks and dales to the local park – Dakota helps keep adventures affordable and enjoyable.

 “The Dakota’s rugged yet compact size makes it an incredibly versatile GPS handheld and with a simple interface, it’s great for kids. Parents can take comfort in never losing their way thanks to the easy to use GPS and extended battery life.”

The robust designs are waterproof and include a high sensitivity GPS receiver, worldwide basemap and colour touchscreen display.

Each Dakota carries 850MB of internal memory, which can store up to 1,000 waypoints, 50 routes, 2,000 geocaches and an active tracklog of up to 10,000 points and 200 saved tracks.

The Dakota 20 is the brand’s top-end outdoors offering and packs in additional features such a barometric altimeter, a microSD card slot for increased mapping, memory storage, and wireless unit-to-unit connectivity.

Garmin is distributed by SMG GROUP (Europe) and Madison in the UK
