It will only take a few minutes to get a lock once powered up, leaving it for an hour is not required although I guess this comment was intended as a joke?

Some people have commented that their uni ...

Just took delivery of my Active 10, and am pleased to say that it got a fix within a couple of minutes of being switched on for the first time. It definitely looks like one of those devices where you ...

If you have the device powered up but using the power save options you should get a couple of days use from a single set of Energizer Lithiums (as supplied with the unit) BUT at the end of your first ...

I've ordered a SatMap from Amazon now (they seemed the cheapest), and it should arrive with me at the beginning of next week. I've also got a Lake District SD map card winging it's way to me.

What do you think about the fact that there appear to be differing controls over quality depending on whether you buy it 'in-house' or from another retailer?

If I can save 50 or so quid getting it ...

Just been speaking to SatMap about this issue. Basically, it appears that (in response to demands from users) v1.03 firmware was coded with something that made the A10 look for the same satellites t ...

I found the RA pretty bad to be honest - the road nav was very poor as you mention. It would seem that the battery life of the SatMap device is better than the RA, and ability to change batterys on t ...
