Visit the Garmin forums.

This is not an unheard-of issue with other GPS models. Many folks get their issues resolved by flashing their firmware. I'm not sure if the files for the Dakota 20 are posted on their forums right now, but one of their techs will e-mail them to you to try out once you get a case going.

I suggest calling their tech support. It always takes longer to get help via e-mail.

It is not uncommon for it to occur with any Garmin GPS from time to time. A firmware update bricked my (and many others') Edge 705 GPSes back in the summer. Sometimes, the Garmin folks were able to get peoples' Edge 705's running again without having to RMA them. Mine had to be RMA'd, but I was unable to tell for sure until the Garmin techs had me try a few things.

Anyway just got a reply from Garmin, they are asking me to try to connect up the unit to charge it then try to power on again... try out later but feeling skeptic about this "patch"
