I am going to purchase a Garmin Dakota but am having a question on if I should purchase the 10 or 20? I need some opinions on which one would serve me better. I hunt and fish but do not do any of the geo stuff! Any assistance would be appreciated and thank you and MerryChristmas.

Last I checked the 10 doesn't handle micro sd cards, so that would be out for me and I would get the 20

I also looked at the etrex 20 and need to do some more research on that. Looks like it is between the dakota 20 and etrex 20. Anyone with some suggestions on what I should buy would be appreciated as I am lets say , challenged when it come to this tech stuff :)

Not sure what you are looking on spending, but the Oregon line is way on sale at several places right now (Cabelas, Amazon), depending on the model, might be comparable money.

Does the Oregon have road and streets mapping if I want to use it for driving and can I put in an address and have it go to that location? Thanks for your assistance. MerryChristmas

The Oregon 450 and 450t will do Turn by Turn directions, if you put the device in the automotive mode and have a compatible map installed (Like Garmin's City Navigator map).
