The Garmin Dakota 20 is sort of a smaller version of the Oregon. It’s about € 50 cheaper, but that does not mean that it is of lower quality, nor that it offers less possibilities. Choices have been made that will appeal to different user groups. I think it would be a good partner for a cycling tourist. I traveled to South Africa with the Garmin Dakota 20, and I ran into things that were out of the ordinary.• Read our full Garmin Dakota 20 review.

During a Q3 2009 business results presentation, Garmin revealed plans for a Garmin Android smartphone. The Business Update was presented by Cliff Pemble, President and COO of Garmin.

However, this seemingly simple navigation system proves to have a lot more to offer, in order to make traveling to unknown destinations a lot easier.• Read our full Garmin car navigation review.
