And thats one of the key reasons why Iím considering a Satmap; its so we can spend more time enjoying the walk and less time consulting the map.

That's exactly why I use the Satmap, so this is a ...

Hi there is a thread on here somewhere that colated a number of users reports on battery life - about a year ago. It would be worth hunting down.

Using all the power saving options I could muster, ...

Can't help with your problem, but I can describe a similar experience:

I had a problem with gpx route which caused pretty much the same problem (not from Walking World) with the unit freezing unpre ...

Oh - thanks for that Gibbo10. I new it didn't track my route, but kind of assumed it would know where I was. Presumably if you haven't moved far the new lock will be achieved quickly. If not I guess t ...

I was a bit puzzled by this too. Sounds like you've got the idea.

The time options are the amount of time the unit will hibernate for before complete power down. If I were backpacking I'd have the ...

Many thanks folks. For most of my walks and bike rides I'll probably still track, but I see big benefits here on a backpacking trip, and for that I'd be willing to sacrifice tracking. Your idea GPSwal ...

Ahhhhhhhh the penny drops Very Happy Many thanks.

So just to clarify:

If I set hibernate mode to 4 hours, when it hibernates - that state will last for 4 hours before complete power off?

Having just upgraded to v1.4 I had a peek at the hibernate mode function. This seems to set a time of 1hr, 2hr, 3hr ... etc
