Satmap Active 10 – GPS for country ramblers

Satellite Navigation systems

The weekend approaches, the sum is out (well, it is here) and a walk in the country could be just the thing. It’s not that simple though – it is far too easy to wander on someone’s land or get lost on an expanse of moors. Unless you are packing something like the Satmap Active 10.

Yes, this is sat nav for outdoor types, housed in a rugged case and available with basic UK mapping, with the option of upgrading with more specific maps – counties, regions, nature trails, and national parks. On the technical side, it houses a 3.5-inch backlit display, integrated patch antenna, Windows CE operating system, USB 2.0 connectivity, an SD card reader, ARM 9 processor, 128MB of RAM, SiRF Star III receiver and an integrated media player in its impact resistant waterproof case.

If you want one, it launches this month and you can pre-order now, priced at £299.99.
