Satmap Active 10
Hi does anyone know if the Satmap Active 10 is a good GPS? I have been using the Garmin Oregon 400t and I'm ready to change - the Garmin is touchscreen which is just too awkward when wearing bulky gloves. Also I don’t need all the extra features on the Garmin – geocaching, fishing etc. My Garmin is about 6 years old and showing its age a little. (screen is a bit scratched).The Satmap has buttons that I believe are more glove-friendly, and I think the unit is bigger than the Garmin.

I know there are newer Satmap models than the Active 10, but the one that might be available to me is the Satmap Active 10, and I wonder if anyone has an opinion on it. So specifically, I wonder:

In terms of technology is the Satmap 10 a backward step, an equal step, or a step forward in relation to the Garmin Oregon 400t?

Is the Satmap 10 easy to use with gloves?

I have the OSI mapping for the Republic of Ireland on a micro memory card which I put in the Garmin. Will this be compatible with the Satmap 10?

Is the Satmap Active 10 a good quality product the way the Garmin Oregon 400t felt like a good quality product?!

Will I regret or appreciate it if I get the Satmap 10?

I know some of these questions require subjective answers but I want to hear others’ opinions! Thanks.
