Absolutely delighted with the Active 20 which on a recent trip to Austria did all that and more than I expected.
It takes a little time to get used to for GPS "virgins" so be patient and patience is required when "hooking up" to Satsync which can take a few minutes.
Planning and transferring routes from Xpedition to the machine is straight forward but I am still struggling to upload routes produced from trails on the Active 20 to my computer (otherwise would have been more than happy to award 5+ stars) though I am sure that the service department of the company (who seem to respond quickly) will help me if I cannot manage to find a solution myself.
I initially thought that the absence of an online manual would be a problem but the manual for the Active 12 covers all the points and the screen shots are almost identical (Active 20 Full User Guide is now available [https://satmap.com/active-20-user-guide]).
All in all I am very happy with the product and its features.

I'm very much a casual user of these devices - I want to know where I am, where I have been and to see where I am going plus the usual how far, how long etc.
I was lucky enough to receive this just before going to the Lake District for a week and have come back very impressed with it.
Scrolling speed is very fast, the accuracy is amazing with 3 feet/1 metre being common. I've tried to find my way over the Scandale Pass from Patterdale a couple of times but have been unable to find the path at higher levels using Active 10/12s. This unit kept me spot on all the way to Ambleside. It even kept a lock whilst travelling back on the bus.
The Active 10 was a fantastic piece of kit when it was introduced but the Active 20 really is a significant improvement on it.

This is my first dedicated GPS unit, having previously only used a smart phone with OS mapping. Out of the box, it fired up first time, the Satellite detection speed was reasonable, and the multiple scale maps operated seamlessly. The screen is very bright, the duplication of the touch screen smart buttons with physical buttons is an excellent idea, that works well.

My primary use of the unit will be for Mountain Biking, so the IP ratings that were missing from the SatMap 10 & 12 units, and smart phones is a major plus.

The unit reached full charge (mains charger) in less than 5 hours on first charge.

The biggest plus is finding that the maps can be set to rotate in 'follow me' or 'Trail Ahead' mode, so it is much easier to follow the correct track when riding (or at least quickly realize you are following the wrong one). I couldn't find this mentioned anywhere beforehand. There are actually 3 rotation modes.
Standard fixed north to top of screen, and the mentioned rotating map aligned in direction of travel, either centred or low on the screen.
