Got fed up with how long the Active 10 takes to get a fix and how it and the 12 are unreadable in sunlight so for last few months been using a Sony Z1 Compact with Viewranger.

Z1 is waterproof Active is sort of weatherproof
Z1 sunlight readable Active unreadable
Z1 quick fix and holds Active slow fix and usually holds
Z1 high res screen Active 2/3rds size screen and low res
Viewranger quick zoom and scroll Satmap slow slow
Z1 recharge battery in 1 hr Active 10 takes over night
Z1 have to open screen each time Active displays but Screen Lock useless
Z1 can make a phone call 10 & 12 cannt
Z1 takes photos and movies 10 cant

etc etc etc


Active 10 was brilliant 5 years ago but 12 is just a refresh of the screen but still with now ancient technology.

Hopefully 14 is a completely new design and not a PDA with rubber buttons.

For now I find the Z1Compact much better.

Sorry a bit of a rant due to all the money I've spent on maps for the 10 and 12 which are useless if the hardware is never really updated to what is available nowadays.
