I have had an Active 12 now for just over 12 months, has been faultless in its operation, screen clarity is very good and the higher definition makes it a lot easier to read. I had reason to contact Sat Map about updating the software using an Apple Mac and they were extremely helpful and efficient.

Having used a top of the range Garmin touchscreen i have no hesitation in saying that the Satmap Active12 is superior in screen clarity and general useability. Im a devotee of long distance walking and for me the Satmap 12 is an essential piece of kit

This was my first purchase of a GPS and I'm very pleased with it and it didn't take long to learn the basics of how to use it. Other friends who have Active 10's have commented on the clarity of the screen. I had a problem with the unit 'freezing' a couple of times, but Cotswold Outdoor swapped it for another unit immediately and with no fuss. New unit works just fine. I frequently export and import GPX files and have found SatSync easy to use and am pleased that it can also update my GPS when necessary.

Excellent - a great improvement over the already very good Active 10 - typefaces used are much clearer, screen is very good, quicker to lock on to GPS.
