    Hi GPS training people.
    I’m using a brand new gpsmap 64st with the Garmin rechargeable battery pack.
    Ive just returned from a 2 hour walk, using only the trip computer. That is no light on the screen from leaving home till coming home.
    Only 20% left on the battery 🥲🥲
    What can I do to the 8-10 hours that you talk about?
