17 October 2012
  • Excerpt: A frequent winner of Trail ‘Best in Test’ awards, the Satmap Active 10 is a purpose-built GPS receiver for the hillwalker. To that end it is a far more user-friendly device than many, having a large screen, big buttons, a joystick and rubberised housing. The screen is wider than most, rather than long and thin, and this really does help ...

  • Excerpt: While much modern technology has turned to touch-screen operation, the Satmap Active 10 uses what must now be known as ‘old-fashioned’ buttons. On the hill with gloves on, those big buttons make this far easier to operate than any other device here, and as the buttons are spaced around the outside of the housing it’s easier to use than a ...

  • Excerpt: As the only dedicated hand-held GPS using full Ordnance Survey mapping, the Active 10 looks familiar and is therefore easy to get used to. Free download software (SatSYNC) is needed to move route data between GPS and PC, but once that’s done you have your route showing on the map – simplicity itself! Logical menus are easy to access via ...

Satmap Active 10 TREK review

GPS Tracklog
1 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The Satmap Active 10 TREK has finally come to the US, four years after its introduction in the UK. And what a difference four years makes. We didn’t have touch screen Oregons then, and super-thin iPhones and GPS receivers with raster imagery were just starting to be seen. But in 2011, the Satmap is reminiscent of the tech of yore, feeling more like a clunky PDA than a cutting edge piece of gear.

  • Excerpt: If you like design you’ll love this GPS receiver. Even the box oozes quality, with a clever retractable housing that instantly sets a new standard of packaging. Grab the Active 10, insert the supplied batteries and in minutes the screen illuminates with an impressive colour map with your location clearly marked. I dabbled with the six buttons and toggle before ...

  • Conclusion: The ultimate navigation tool: easy to use with super-clear mapping. But it's expensive once maps are added.

Satmap Active 10

18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: We schreven het eerder: in de wereld van gps-en is het toch vooral Garmin, Garmin en nog eens Garmin. Met de komst van de Satmap Active 10 verandert er aan de heerschappij van Garmin niet veel, maar wel wat. De Satmap Active 10 – 1 uur waterdicht op 1 meter onder water – heeft een SiRF Star III ontvanger en de ontvangst is ook onder bladerdek prima. Drie gewone AA batterijen zijn goed voor zo’n 6,5 uur ontvangst.
  • Pros: stevig, goede knoppen, groot scherm, uitstekende kadastrale kaarten
  • Cons: aan/uit knop gevoelig, duur
