The Active 10 fully integrates digital maps and GPS hardware, wherein users can purchase additional map cards that include detailed imagery of counties, regions, national trails, and national parks. Moreover, this device is packed with additional features such as an integrated patch antenna, Windows CE operating system, ARM 9 processor, integrated media player, 3.5-inch color display, an SD card reader for your digital maps, and a USB 2.0 connectivity all in a impact-resistant, waterproof casing. The Satmap Active 10 also offers a long battery life, an electronic compass, a direction indicator, an on-board route planning, as well as map orientation.

The maps are supplied on SD map cards that are simply plugged straight into the gadget, making it a stand-alone system that would work straight out of the box.
