Amazon reviews here.http://tredz.staging.cshopdev.co.uk/prodimg/31330_1_Zoom.jpg

I have voted it hot on price. It is a great piece of kit.

Memory map hands down beats all other software for hiking in my opinion.

But, I do think the proprietary battery lets it down. Compatibility with rechargeable NiMH AA, and single use AA would have given it much more flexibility.

The Amazon reviews are mixed as well.

I think I will stick with my IPAQ/Bluetooth GPS combo for now.

What's the battery life? Seems fairly critical with a device like this.

Bit pricey isnt it. Sat Navs are selling for under £50 nowadays. Why is this so much more?

Red hot. Sat Navs for outdoor enthusiasts with maps don't cost £50. You can't take your Tom Tom off road, and onto the moors, access ordnance survey maps and have the safeguard that it has protection from the elements too (presumable would survive a dip in shallow water).

It is powered by a lithium battery with a stated eight hour capacity. Car charger so OK for most purposes. There is a £30 optional power extender.

I agree with a previous poster that AA power would be better but MM have chosen to keep the size and weight of the unit to a minimum.

It is very well priced compared to Garmin alternatives - especially with the inclusion of OS maps. Don't compare this with car navigational devices. This is portable, rugged and waterproof.

I read somewhere that access to Ordnance Survey maps is to become free soon. If so, the price of these will plummet.

To say that the reviews are mixed is putting it politely as it seems that software crashes a lot, which is not what you should put up with on a device like this. I'd go for this Satmap Active 10 Handheld Monitor if you can afford the extra £75.

Read the Amazon reviews carefully. Many of the unfavourable ones are not by people who have spent time with the device and learned to use it. I am sure that there have been problems with it - but the Satmap has also had some awful reviews - I have friends who bought this and regret it. There are some very considered reviews from walkers that suggest the MM 2800 is worthwhile and from personal experience their support is exemplary.

Yes I saw this too - looking forward to it - what we currently have to pay for British map data is disgraceful.

I don't agree though that it will have a material effect on the price of this item. It is less expensive than comparable models that come without OS data.

Impressive!
Two questions though :-
• Can you download other maps e.g. European countries, for free?
• Can you attach an external battery pack to keep it running longer?
Hot deal! :thumbsup:

[COLOR="Red"]Update - HOLY SMOKE! Have you seen the price of buying other maps for this? Prices range from about £40 - £240!
It's suddenly gone very chilly here. :-([/COLOR]

[COLOR="Purple"]I have just thought of a third question. - Is it Mac compatible? From looking at their site I don't think so. :-( This is no longer looking very good to me. :-([/COLOR]

Their site is here with all details.

Extended battery pack is £30 (maybe cheaper from a retailer).
European maps cost money. There are various free mapping sites that support these devices but this is too new for much information to be available.

Cost is no higher than any of the alternatives. The inclusion of UK National Parks & a fairly generous custom area is a benefit.

In the US maps are cheaper because they are open source. In Europe the OS equivalents charge highly for the use of the data.

Incidentally the 3d representation of the mapping data with satellite photography is very impressive - you can 'fly' through the route you intend to take on the PC.

Yes, you are no doubt correct. It's too much for me though so it's off the shopping list. It doesn't seem to be Mac compatible either which is another downer.[/COLOR]
