The Active 10 TREK is hot off the production line so we have not received any US awards yet. We hope to be able to post some here soon. In the meantime, here is a selection UK media awards.
Satmap is proud to have won a number of awards for the Active 10. The awards featured here are particularly important to us as they reflect the recognition by independent industry experts.
Country Walking Overall GPS Winner
Best in Test
"The huge screen is a delight to use, enabling you to see a fair bit of the surrounding terrain at a reasonable zoom level without having to scroll."
TGO Recommends Award
"The claimed battery life is good and I found this could be extended by using the power-saving mode and 'screen off after 15 seconds' options. Using these I got over 20 hours from a set of lithium batteries."
Trail Magazine Group Test Winner: 4.7 out of 5
"This device actually does make you wonder if you really need to carry that map and compass for navigation after all."
What Mountain Bike: GPS Test Winner
"The major draw of the Active 10 is that it works as a completely standalone unit. You can still upload pre-planned routes using Satmap's online software, but it's just as easy to work directly on the GPS, making it a versatile and straightforward alternative"

"Satmap's Active 10 GPS unit is the best we've used, putting OS mapping on a screen in front of you and being built specifically to perform in the outdoors."
BBC Countryfile Best Buy
"It's the answer to every walkers dream - a real OS map that fits neatly into your pocket, tells you exactly where you are when you ask it to, and which doesn't blow away in the wind."
