SatMap Active 10 is a notable handheld GPS. Although it is constructed around a standard 240 x 320 resolution colour LCD screen, just like a lot of modern PDA phones, in every other respect it is anything but standard.
The body of the SatMap GPS is made from a tough, hardy-feeling plastic and the viewing screen has a thick, transparent, replaceable cover for protection. It is operated by large buttons that are big enough to be used whilst wearing gloves. It is also weather-proof as all slots, ports and compartments are sealed with rubber flaps.
