Satmap recently posted the following on their Facebook page:

Is your battery dying quickly? See if this fixes it for you!
See https://satmap.com/knowledge/Active_12/Battery_Issues.html

This was very timely information for me. After a couple of hours use, the battery indicator on my -10 was periodically showing a red bar, then reverting to three greens, then going red again. I assumed a battery problem and was about to order a new one. But I thought I should try doing a settings reset see https://satmap.com/knowledge/Active_12/Defaulting_Settings.html. And it solved the problem!

I also suggest recording all the settings before the reset; I keep a file of all settings. With this, it is much easier to return to previous preferences. And don't forget that the Active Route Colour will be reset to a quite solid blue. To change this to something less intrusive, the setting is a bit hidden: Routes Menu | Select any route | Edit | Edit Active Route Colour | Edit then select your choice and click Set. Not sure why this is not in the Settings, since it affects all routes.
