Auto sleep can be a pain

Pigprof, Amazon

  • Summary: My main reason for buying this product was to be able to log position of features and points from which I take photos and to create track logs, rather than to show me where I am walking. Hence I may not refer to it for long periods.

Useful Gadget

  • Summary: Bought after walking solo and getting slightly lost. Liked the idea of having the OS maps. The screen does not show much of the map at one time, relatively low resolution compared to todays electronic tablets. Also the zoom does not change scale of map.

Great GPS System; would be excellent with a better battery

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I did a lot of research before buying the Satmap Active 10 Plus and so far, after a month's use, it has lived up to my expectations. It is robust and accurate and has got me out of trouble more than once already! The downside is the battery arrangement which seems very outdated.

Great GPS but tricky to learn

  • Summary: I have a Cycle version of this but use it mostly for walking. It offers many options and takes a while to master, but when you have it is recording your trail, adds a lot of value to the route. Statistics are available while you travel and when stopped at the end.

Satmap Tech Support second to none

John D Hunter, Amazon

Very robust unit

Paul, Amazon

  • Summary: Very robust product which works effectively. Takes a while to lock on to satellites but then works really well. Can be a bit complex if you want to use all the facilities available but as a simple GPA device to show you where you are and to measure your walk it is simple and effective.
