Hi robs1972,

I've not run the device for more than 4 hours, but it did drop a bar at just before 4 hours. This was screen on all the time at 40% and ...

Hi Maultby,
I've found the device keeps your position centred within a constantly moving circle. I have no problem seeing whats coming up in detail. If you know there are quite a few turns in close p ...

Hi PloddinPedro,
I agree it will be great to have the website up and running to plot routes etc.
I ride off road in the dark using a Lupine Wilma (only 450 !). The beam is terrific, actually too br ...

Hi PloddinPedro,
Thanks for that.
I hear Satmap are going to issue a full instruction set, probably via the website. That would help solve a few bits and bobs.
How is your A10 ? Do you find it bett ...

Hi Matltby,
I am using the device off road. The only problem I've had is the batteries shaking when the device was new. I adjusted the retaining clips (consulted Satmap first !) to keep the batteries ...

Hi all,
I have used the unit off road. The unit stays secure and picks up everything accurately. Just watch out for loose batteries- you might find the jiggling about requires you to tighten the batt ...

Hi Mike,
Thanks for that. I'm currently carrying 3 NH batteries in the front pouch of the carry case. I don't think they will short out, but I'll take extra precautions.
Is it an issue to leave them ...

Hi Robs,
I've found that software 1.03 improves the speed of zooming and all the other actions. It's worth a try. If not, I would send the unit back for them to fix/ check etc. I'm sure they will do ...

Hi Chrissyboy,
I had this freeze problem a couple of times. I took the batteries out 3 times and then it was OK. I've seen a comment about new batteries being above the voltage limit causing a proble ...

Since my last post 2 days ago, I left mine on for 4 hours and it went dead. I think the standard alkaline batteries look to last about 6 hours.
I must get some rechargeables too, or go for the Satmap ...
