Next weeks Gadget Show (Mon 8pm 7th April 08, Channel 5) is road testing handheld GPS's and from the (very) brief clip I saw it seems the SatMap may be amongst them.

WILD CHALLENGE: This week Jason, Suzi and Jon head to the depths of the Welsh countryside for this series' 'Wild Challenge'. There will be plenty of frenetic outdoor activity as the guys put Tough Phones through their paces; try to avoid a perishing night in the cold by using handheld GPS units to navigate their merry way back to the campsite; then they ride some of the newest and most exciting personal transport vehicles we could get our hands on.

FOCUS GROUP: This week Jason, Suzi and Jon will try to win over a group of outdoor enthusiasts, as they pitch their current favourite gadgety shoes to the group.

Sounds like an interesting line up, watching them blow up devices or putting them underwater as usual no doubt - Mike

I see there was a Satmap 'review' in the Sunday Times 2 days ago....it said a life of 30 hours from 3 AAs could be expected. Laughing

You will get around 30 Hours from a set of normal AA cells if you don't turn the device on - Mike

So the Satmap blew the Magellan and Garmin out of the water! I must say I was surprised at how poor the Garmin performance apparently was. The screen on the Satmap seemed very bright compared to mine! I wonder which version of firmware Jason was using....

Mayeb we're just a bunch of moaning minnies on this forum Laughing
