As good as, if not better than high-end Garmin outdoor GPS
Launched in March 2014, the Active 12 Mapping Sports GPS builds builds on the success of the previous model, the Active 10, which proved a big hit when it first came out nearly 6 years ago.
The new model has a hi-res screen, Bluetooth connectivity, a barometric altimeter, more RAM and new and improved software. Like the Active 10, the Active 12 stands out amongst its competitors with a large colour display and rugged water resistant case.
The new display uses a 3.5" 320 x 480 pixel HVGA transmissive LCD panel with twice the resolution of the Active 10 providing enhanced clarity and detail.
Bluetooth allows for wireless connectivity between Bluetooth low energy heart rate monitors and cadence/speed sensors as well as peer to peer data sharing between other Active 12 units. Connectivity to smartphones and tablets is expected in a forthcoming software update.
For those of you who want to update to the new device, most of the accessories and all the mapping that you have used with your Active 10 are compatible with the Active 12. The only Active 10 accessory that isn't compatible with the Active 12 is the screen covers, due to the difference in screen sizes.
The Active 12 is waterproof to IPX6 and for this reason we would recommend that you do purchase one of the high-end Proshield cases.
