5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I choose the SatMap Active 10 +, 29 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Satmap Active 10 Plus with GB Outdoor GPS Map (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
After over a year deliberating and reviewing I finally decided on the SatMap Active 10 and it has not disappointed. It has been on three trips into the mountain in varying conditions and has performed perfectly. The screen is clear, bright and is easy to read in sunlight, the size of the unit is just right, the buttons are responsive, the menu and functions are easy to get used and to and it does not have a touch screen!
I have been using the unit with Memory Map which I use to create a route and use SatSync to upload and download routes and tracks to my PC.

Likes
Good size
Good screen and easily readable in a number of conditions
Trip computer
Route profile and being able to see where you are on your route
Ability to display a number of different information boxes on the map screen
Ease of transfer between PC and unit
Battery life only used the rechargeable pack and it has not gone below 3 bars!
Ability to change front cover and by replacements
Ability to send back to SatMap for a refurb if required

Could be Improved
Whilst a fantastic idea the actual implementation of the fitting could be better as the clips can easily break
Rechargeable battery is a bit loose and you can feel it move in the battery housing
Needs a way of easily attaching to a rucksack shoulder strap

Overall very impressed and pleased with the purchase.

A small piece of adhesive foam strip stuck on the the battery will stop that.
