I am thinking of getting a Dakota 20 for my cycling needs which is mainly downloading routes from Mapmyride to follow. However, I had read quite a number of negative reports about the unit, mainly total blackout for new unit. Should I go ahead with it or would you suggest any unit that would suit my need. I would prefer to buy a unit costing no more than the Dakota 20.

Many thanks

Sorry Bro, no idea. This is not one of the more common Garmin Handheld used in MSM. You can google
and read for yourself. I found one:
