Planning walks for a SatMap - Xpedition and SatSYNC
Sun 1st March 2015
Xpedition offers maps and planning tools In the Clouds and is open to anyone who registers for the service and although set up with Active 10 users in mind is not exclusively for them. (In the Clouds essentially means maps held on the Satmap server that can be accessed by anyone with a broadband Internet connection).
Expedition is available at two levels a free version with access to limited planning & sharing features and maps; however they do include maps such as Worldwide Bing, Open Street Maps and Whole GB Ordnance Survey Landranger 50k mapping which is pretty impressive for a free programme.
Full planning & sharing and impressive list of maps is available for an annual fee of just £20 per annum. The great advantage is that the maps are updated annually and added to as Satmap add to the list of maps they supply for the Active 10.
To sum up Expedition is designed to support the Active 10 owner to allow planning & sharing and send to GPS via SatSYNC online and to support any maps they have purchased for their device as all maps sold for the device are available in Xpedition Premium for planning & sharing online.
How does the system work?
Xpedition can be accessed using this link to the Satmap website; simply register and login to get started. You can create waypoints and routes, save them to your PC/Mac and then import them to your Active 10 using some free software called SatSYNC.
You can download the latest version of SatSYNC to your PC/Mac from this page on the Satmap website
