    Despite some of the previous reviews, I decided to take the plunge and purchase a Satmap GPS.
    Two reasons made me take this decision.
    1) I was keen on using GPS with a built in OS map as it somewhat removes the need for route planning in advance
    2) I am not keen on touch screen especially outdoors and with gloves.
    So following the purchase and some initial handling and getting used to the menu structure etc the unit was put to the test in severe weather conditions and in mountainous terrain. What were the result ?
    Battery life from the rechargeable pack was excellent, despite a day in the mountains there was only a slight drop in the power indicator. Satellite fix was quick and maintained throughout. Display was clear with good back light, and the tracking was positive to the OS paths. The compass was checked and was accurate as was the built in way point direction indicator. The trip data was clear and accurate when matched data from pre trip planning data. The ability to plan a route whilst out was a real bonus as worsening weather conditions lead to a route change half way.
    It is a real confidence builder to see exactly where you are on the OS map
    Lastly I managed to drop the unit 80ft down a crag and to my amazement, on recovery, the thing fired up again, fixed on satellites within seconds and promptly showed the route forward. I and others were well impressed.
    Apart from this one instance the unit did not crash during the trip and you could hardly blame it for turning itself off after a fall like that.
    All in all a great "button operated", OS mapping, GPS.

    UPDATE

    Over one year on and I am still delighted with this unit. Several software upgrades have taken place during the year, with a result that many additional features now exist. UK Company with UK Support is refreshing. Highly recommended

    I've upgraded from quite a few handheld GPS devices over the years so a bit of experience with them. My previous one was a Garmin 60csx though more and more I'd started to use OS maps and GPS on a Nokia E90 phone. The Garmin is very robust, weatherproof and quick to track satellites but the screen size and lack of proper OS map was off putting. The Nokia phone has the maps but isn't robust enough for foul weather on top of a mountain. I wanted something that combined the two - and the SatMap does that - weatherproof and OS maps.

    The SatMap is to be my replacement for the Garmin and in terms of map quality it beats it hands down. In terms of GPS sensitivity the SatMap is much slower to track satellites from cold and not quite as accurate though not far off.

    My reasons for not giving 4 or 5 stars are:

    1) Compared to the quality of my iPhone screen the SatMap screen looks very poor and dated. On the iPhone you can zoom out of an OS map and still read the fine detail. With the SatMap things get too grainy if you zoom out too far. Still looks better than the Garmin 60csx screen though. I suspect the current Garmin screens are not much different.

    2) The iPhone's GPS is way, way faster and more accurate than the SatMap GPS. What the SatMap does in minutes the iPhone does in seconds. It really is amazing just how much more powerful the iPhone GPS is. I also compared the SatMap with the Garmin 60csx and the Garmin was quite a bit quicker at finding a lock from cold. Once locked on though both seem equally good at keeping a lock.

    3) Buttons could be easier to use

    4) Nice to have a charge complete on the charger - certain amount of guessing as to how far its charged.

    Like many walkers I have been waiting for an OS based GPS for years - and so when this came out I was very interested. The reason I waited so long was mainly price - could I justify the amount of money. Having bought this in the autumn after the price dropped a bit and then bought the basic maps I need (ie from the 1:25k series maps) I reckon I have spent nearly £600 = serious money.

    Another thing that had put me off was, being a bloke, I don't think I need a navigator ie. something that tells you which way to go (who wants life to be too easy) ... However, the Satmap is really just an OS map with your location on it - you still need to navigate the route yourself.

    So, is it worth it - I would say it depends on how worried you are about the effect of getting lost. If you walk in areas with well defined paths and visual references you can take bearings from then, as long as you are sensible about the weather and keep your wits about you, you probably don't need to spend the money on this. However, I now do a lot of walking at night as well as in forests and thick woodland - which makes keeping track of location by map and compass very difficult. Also, I am responsible for others now - wife and dog - which is a big deal. The Satmap has taken the stress out of navigating in these conditions.

    Usability is pretty good. The buttons can take a hefty press to register, but that means they won't get knocked by accident too often. The screen is fine with excellent detail and I like the fact that there is a built in screen protector which can be replaced at low cost. The night vision setting (red screen) works, although routes get hard to read. I have not had any sunlight problems as yet. I can't imagine having it on handlebars of a bike though.
