Its the best GPS on the market to date and very cost efective
This is a fantastic device and absolutely reliable it was like having another hand on my journey round the Scottish Islands it even told me where I had been and where I hadn't especially going down unmarked tracks I saw sights that I would have completely missed the scrolling Os map is wonderful and continually updates including the NGR reference plus you can take it out the car and walk or charge it in the car as all accessories are included, if I had one complaint it would be the small screen size but hey for the price top marks to Memory map "start here go anywhere" and you can do just that.

Stopped working after 10 mins and no response from customer support.
I am very disappointed. The device stopped working after 10 minutes (it wouldn't loads maps). Whilst it was working the zoom didn't work properly and loading of maps took a long time. Customer support is poor as phone calls cost 50p per minute and they have failed to answer two emails.

I will NEVER buy a Memory Map GPS again
I had my old Garmin vista c for a couple of years and love it very much but wanted something with a larger screen and OS map so I got a Adventurer 2800 GPS receiver. I've have my Memory Map Adventure 2800 GPS now for about 2 years now and I am very disappointed with it for the following reasons: 1 battery life is very short even with the extra power pack it doesn't last a full day (8-10 hours). And I have all the power saving bit on. I doesn't take AA batteries so when the batteries die thats it. Plus the user guide that came with the battery pack was badly translated and almost impossible to follow. 2 It sometimes losses GPS signal even in the middle of a large open field with full view of the sky. This is no fun in the middle of Dartmoor in the mist. 3 When recording a track sometimes it stops recording by itself half way round the route. 4 Sometime when recording a track and I touch the screen to view the map it thinks I want to put a waypoint in on the screen (which I don't) this then messes up the track. 5 The after sales care you get from Memory Map is at best Bad. Before anyone even thinks about getting one of these GPS's first take a look in the Memory Map support forum at all the problems other people have and are still having with this GPS. This is something I wish I have done before buying the GPS. My old Garmin vista GPS worked fine and I regret buying this Memory Map GPS so my next GPS will be from Garmin again. Read full review

Excellent software. OK Unit. Would buy again at the right price.
Just a quick summary of my experience over 15 months or so of ownership. Memory Map software. Excellent PC based mapping; the best I have seen. Can spend your evenings planning routes on whatever detail map you have, then download to your device. Can also share routes using .gpx files. A2800 use. Once you've figured it out, it's good. Display detail is excellent. Only negative for me what that is did not do trail up, only North up. Okay if you're walking as you just swivel the device, but not so easy when mountain biking or trail riding. Battery life. If only using it to pinpoint your position, then won't be an issue. If using it to navigate i.e. screen permanently on, then the max I got was 6 hours on a charge. There are external batteries available now which I didn't have; these should help. Unit longevity. They are sealed units and thus, in my understanding, not that fixable. Our unit was replaced under warranty due to a 'freezing' issue. The replacement then broke a few months later (USB port). They wouldn't repair under warranty which was disappointing, but did offer a cheap upgrade. Where am I now? I've got a Satmap for the rough stuff - mountain biking and trail riding (they do a cheap repair service and most things are fixable), and a A3500 for walking. I plan all routes on the Memory Map software, and export them to the relevant device. Expensive having 2 devices though. Read full review

A misunderstood and brilliant gps product
I can certainly second the other reviewers on here, the 2800 got a lot of testing from me, both in the uk and europe, the screens brightness and refresh rate are exceptional, only very occasionally will the sun cause any problems, planning routes on the including software is a breeze, and so is the transfer to the gps, yes the qwerty keyboard is on the small size and could cause problems for those who wear glasses. Its fair to state that this unit have caused a little problem for other gps manufacturers, check out the unbelievable reviews on amazon. If you get the chance look at memorymaps forum, quite open and willing to be criticised unlike the satmap, there are a few niggles highlighted there, but nothing i think to spoil what i consider to be a 5 star product.
