There's no point comparing the two. They're different devices for different purposes. If you want a mapping GPS buy the Satmap. If you want a HRM / cadence / Cycle computer with some GPS mapping capabilities buy the Garmin.
Garmin UK maps are not a patch on OS maps.
The SatMap is only really useful if you are actually going to use the ordance survey information whilst riding. THIS WILL NOT PROVIDE TURN-BY-TURN navigation from Addresses/Postcodes. You will have to draw the route yourself.
I doubt that you will be able to use the many track web sites either to draw your track? I might be wrong though. http://www.memory-map.co.uk/board/index ... opic=10053
I looked at this forum when trying to decide whether to buy Edge 705 or Satmap Active 10
Discussion nearly put me off buying Satmap but fortunately ended up contacting them directly and found that you can use Satmap to download routes.
