Satmap Systems Ltd. today announces that it will be showing a new release of software (version 1.15) for the Active 10 sports GPS at The Outdoors Show. It incorporates many new features and functionality identified as desirable by customers as well as professionals, (including members of U.K. Mountain Rescue teams). Additionally, this version has a new power management system which significantly reduces the overall power consumption of the Active 10. Improvements have also been made in GPS performance in signal retention under difficult conditions (e.g. beneath a tree canopy).

The many new features and functions include:
• A blue ‘You Are Here’ dot to distinguish a current location from the user’s track.
• The ability to hide inactive routes.
• The ability to download the raw track data from the Active 10 onto a PC.
• A low power mode that automatically sets up the unit to maximise the battery life.
• The ability to reset the track and the trip log simultaneously.
• The ability to lock onto a GPS position automatically from start-up, making finding your exact location very fast and easy.

Richard Calthrop-Owen, Managing Director, Satmap Systems Ltd., said: “The improvements and enhancements are the result of us listening to feedback directly from our customer and we are grateful for their input in helping us create a product that meets user requirements more closely than other GPS products. As a result, this new software is not just available to customers who buy an Active 10 from today onwards, but also to our existing users.”

Satmap Systems is making a number of other announcements at The OS Outdoors Show with the launch of:
1. The Satmap Power Bundle
Satmap now offers customers the greatest range of power options for any GPS on the market. The Power Bundle gives customers total flexibility in the way they power their Active 10. The Bundle includes a specially designed Lithium-Ion Polymer (LiPol) 2,700mAh battery, a wall charger with multi-region interchangeable heads, a car charger and an USB cable. The LiPol battery can be recharged via the USB cable from laptops, PCs, 110/240v wall sockets and 12v cigarette lighter sockets.

2. Satmap’s Custom Mapping Service
Satmap is the first company to offer a custom mapping service for a handheld GPS. Customers can now buy only the map areas they need. The custom mapping services include: Site Centred Mapping (a bespoke online service for customers who want non-standard map areas); Custom Mapping (a bespoke map which can be an irregular shape as well as having multiple map sections on one SD card); Trail Maps (a service for customers that desire a route or specific trail not covered in the standard map catalogue); and Special Event Mapping (a service available for people entering events or challenges or companies that are holding private events).

3. SatSYNC
Satmap is ensuring compatibility with many of the leading PC-based route planning systems (such as Memory Map, Tracklogs and Map Source) with the launch of SatSYNC. This new software provides an easy to use PC and Active 10 interface and is offered to all customers to enable them to convert GPX files to a format that is compatible with the Active 10. This means users can do route planning and sharing using third party map software, import and export routes between the Active 10 and a PC, and manage the SD card and hard drive storage of the unit. The software is available for free download at Satmap's website.

Satmap Active 10
The Active 10 was launched in October 2007 – it is a purpose built, plug and play, handheld sports GPS that gives a pin-point accurate location on digital Ordnance Survey Explorer and Landranger maps. It shows users exactly where they are, gives a trail showing where they’ve been, and can also be loaded with a route showing where to go.

The Active 10 is the first to offer a large colour screen displaying high quality Raster topographical mapping in a robust unit that can be used in almost any weather, day or night. The device also logs statistics such as route elevation, time, distance and speed. The Active 10 uses maps stored on SD cards, requires no PC to operate and is ready to use straight out of the box.

Pricing and Availability
The Power Bundle is available now online and in store at an RRP of £44.99
The Satmap Active 10 is available now at an RRP of £299 and comes with free high-quality national road mapping pre-loaded as standard. Over 200 high quality feature-rich Ordnance Survey Landranger and Explorer maps are currently available and sold on SD cards priced according to their size and detail. For example, the UK county maps cost £29.99 each and the National Parks cost £99.99 each. Satmap also offers a custom mapping service where users can buy bespoke mapping, such as maps centred on a specific postcode.

The Active 10 is sold at a number of high street retailers and independent shops, including Blacks, Field & Trek and John Lewis Partnership, as well as online at Satmap's website.
