Can I clip it to a rucksack?
I'm after confirmation from an user as from reading all the info on the unit it comes with a lanyard and a carry case with a belt loop which really does not offer the ability you clip the unit to the shoulder strap of a rucksack.
Am I correct?
I stick mine in a pocket most of the time or attach it to my hipbelt. I think it might be a bit big to hang off a strap. Also you kind of need both hands to use it IMO so you would want some sort of quick release. You could try attaching the carry case to your rucksack, I prefer to have it low down.
Cheers Steve, can I assume that the antenna is sensitive enough to keep tack whilst in it's case?
I don't like the idea of having the unit in my pocket or having it swinging around my neck on a lanyard.
If it works well within its case whilst attached to the hip belt of my ruck sack this could be an acceptable option.
Parky, sounds like an interesting set up, any chance of a photo showing how you have it attached to your shoulder strap and the dyneema through the lanyard eyes - I'm assuming it is set quite taught to stop it swinging excessively.
I must say that I have been researching mapping GPS for a number of months and have narrowed my choice between Garmin GPS 62s UK mapping and the Satmap Active 10 UK Plus - the Satmap is edging it for the screen size.
Unfortunately the MM 3500 has been eliminated due to SW bugs.
Berghaus does some neat little cases that are designed to clip onto most pack webbing and straps that'd work, the standard soft case supplied has a belt loop, but the unit itself doesn't have an integral clip and neither does the waterproof case.

Cheers for all the replies.
Can I confirm that we are talking about the Berghaus E-Case Small as per the below link.
pictures done in a rush and the site is being contrary about loading them
loops attached to each side. double loop of shock cord on strap to hold unit securely.
add "string" however long you want. same with shockcord to store the unit wherever you want it.
add extra loops (larksfoot them onto existing loops) if wanted.
Thanks alot the pictures really answer some questions. Much appreciated.
i keep satmap in case and attach case to shoulder strap with cable ties,then cutoff excess,makes for a neat job
This is worth a look if your thinking of buying a Satmap.
And Cotswold price match. I bought one when they did the offer last year.
Good to know my local one is in Manchester on the 19th 10-4pm so will try and find out if they will be running any discount promotions durring the event
I have a self made set up made from an old belt clip from a Blackberry and glued with epoxy to the battery cover:
i didn't go that route as i often use the unit in other places than a rucksack strap - pockets, clipped into a shoulder bag or belt.
