I realize its doesn't speak the turns BUT can the Dakota 20 when switched to or Road Nav mode do turn by turn directions and sound a beep when a turn is approaching? My now dead Delorme PN-20 could do that. It would just beep once when a turn was approaching and do 2 quick beeps when you should turn and would show a large arrow on screen to show which way to turn. Since the manual stinks for Dakota which I already read and have a Dakota 20 coming I was curious as to whether it could do that. I also have a Nuvi for car but its nice to have a backup.
Oh I downloaded some maps from http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/ and the maps are better than the garmin 100K topo I already have. Great place to get free topo maps. Make sure you have mapsource program already installed before running the install for any maps you download. That way they show up in the mapsource pulldown menu for maps installed on PC.
