Outdoors GPS specialists Satmap have recently launched the long-awaited successor to their popular Active 10 satnav device.
Available in stores now, the new Active 12 Mapping Sports GPS features a 3.5’’ hi-res LCD screen for highly detailed topographical mapping, hi-res Ordnance Survey Mapping with 1:25k and 1:50k scales for improved resolution and clarity, and Bluetooth Smart data sharing for earmarking routes and sending them to family and friends.
The built in barometric altimeter allows users to take pressure measurements using local and sea-level data which should help chart macro weather trends over time, while the Bluetooth Smart fitness sensor can monitor heart rate and speed of movement. Other features include international and custom mapping with downloadable maps soon to be introduced.
Satmap Systems Ltd MD, Howard Dyson, said: ‘’The Active 12 represents a solid evolutionary step forward for this award winning brand. These new features reinforce our belief that large format, hi-res quality mapping on a robust, feature-rich, but easy-to-use platform is highly valued by the serious users in the outdoor sports community.’’
