Did I do okay?

Was looking for my 1st hand-held and found a Garmin Dakota 10 with topo bundle at Dick's sporting goods for $129.00...got it home and opened the battery case...they left the batteries in it and the battery connections are corroded...no biggie...easy to clean off...I think I got a good deal?

In Dakota, you have plenty of features useful for MDing. An accurate receiver, 1000 waypoint and 200 saved track capacity and If you are after more than coins and bling, make sure to explore custom maps ability of your receiver - may be useful in hunting locations based on old maps! http://www.garmin.com/us/products/onthetrail/custommaps Yup, your $130 receiver can do things that... well, let me just say that MD manufacturers who wish to build in GPS capabilities into their machines should first look at one of these... ;)

Does the Garmin Oregon also have the custom map feature or is it only the Dakota?

With the custom map feature , is possible to take a 1917 topo and download it into the GPS?

Thanks, El

I'll make sure I check the battery connections when I buy my GPS. Glad you got a good deal.
