Take extra batteries / charger.
We have a Garmin
handhelp plotter GPSmap 76Cx and on rechargable batteries will only just do a night at anchor
Alkaline batteries re better.
Keep the back lighting
off, or very low.
Our Navman Plotter at the helm
has a neat data option: voltage! You can see the oltage go from 12.2 to 12.3 as you turn the backlighting down.
Thats where the power goes....
We have chargers, cigaette lighter input and small inverter
to charge our camera
batteries and also a supply of alkaline batteries and a big bundle of cheap
Dollar Shop batteries. The Dollar Shop batteries are best on anything that will power up to them
