Satmap Active 10

The Active 10 Plus is a complete GPS solution and is an excellent OS mapping device. It gives you the hardware, software and route planning tools you need to get out and explore the great outdoors.

With a large, high definition colour screen, three power options are on offer as standard in the box. You can choose between using AA batteries (plug in cradle) and smart lithium battery (mains re-charger included) – both options plug to the same source. Or 12v DC vehicle power cable (cigarette lighter to mini USB).

The Active 10 Plus comes pre-loaded with the following mapping: UK OS MiniScale 1:1 million; 1:250k (raster) UK road mapping and a World Map 1:5 million, and it has postcode look-up capability. PC only compatible, it supports most software, including Memory-Map but is not WAAS/EGNOS-enabled.
