“DualControl”: Touchscreen & Buttons
The Active 20 is the first device of its class to be fully touchscreen or button operated (“DualControl”), successfully catering to the wider needs of the outdoor community, who seek the ease, convenience and familiarity of full touchscreen control, whilst at the same time looking after the needs of other professional users in very tough weather conditions who tend to prefer the certainty, control feedback and gloved use that comes with full button control.
Best-in-class GPS receiver (including GLONASS & Galileo)
Fitted with the latest, high-sensitivity GPS receiver (uBlox MAX M8), the Active 20 supports all the primary satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BeiDou, WAAS, EGNOS, etc.) with superb accuracy results, even indoors, in cars, in town and under heavy tree cover. Accuracy figures of 1-2m are typical in many conditions.
Bright HVGA screen
The Active 20 now boasts an all-new, large (3.5”), super-bright (600cd) transmissive, full colour HVGA TFT display. This crystal clear screen is optically bonded to Gorilla Glass to provide the very best light transmission and sunlight readability. Full backlight control and “red-filter” allow for optimal viewing in all conditions. There is even a high-contrast sunlight mode for snow & glacier conditions.
The Active 20 is all about displaying superb topographic mapping, and providing advanced users with a full range of GPS functionality. The extensive additional topographic map catalogue (at www.satmap.com) of over 450 global map titles (including full Ordnance Survey GB coverage) uniquely providing easy toggling between various map types. Satmap MapCards are 100% transferrable between the existing Active 10/12 series (using microSD cards within SD adaptors) and the all-new the Active 20 (using just micro SD cards).
LiPol and AA Battery operation
The Active 20 has a unique dual-battery system that includes a long-life 5,100mAh rechargeable LiPol battery pack, and optionally, a AA Battery Pack which supports AA Lithium, NiMH, and Alkaline primary cells, giving users a complete range of power sources.
Wi-Fi & BT Smart 4.0
Enhanced Active 20 connectivity is achieved via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features. Currently, Wi-Fi connectivity is available for platform and application software updates.
BT Smart 4.0 functionality currently allows users to exchange routes between the Satmap Active GPS family (Active 12 and Active 20), and the BTLE side supports BT Heart Rate Monitor Profile, as well as BT Bike Speed & Cadence Profile. BT Power and other useful BT Profiles will be added in the near future.
The Active 20 has achieved higher than average waterproofing standards than industry norms. Rated to IP68 (1.5m depth for 1.5 hours of submersion) the Active 20 outperforms the majority of its rivals in this class of Sports GPS.
Bike, Belt & Vehicle Mounts
The Active 20 uses the very popular Quad Lock bike, beltclip and vehicle mounting system. Utilising a bespoke backplate, the Active 20 will fit the full range of standard Quad Lock mounts.
Satmap Systems is proud to support British industry, and the Active 20 is wholly UK manufactured, with hardware from Lancaster and Torquay, with software and mapping from Leatherhead, Cambridge and other national providers.
