Hi There!

The last 3 Navman units I have purchased have particularly crappy battery life. Anyone else experiencing this ?

I can't find any settings that allow me to have the unit auto switch off, during extended periods of non movements?

Is there anything else I can do ?

I am using the EZY40.

Also I would like to know how I can load addresses I find of interest from my PC onto the NAVMAN. IE Home, work, various clients addresses, places I frequent? Is this possible?

My TomTom has a function to turn the screen off between commands saving power. maybe check of some of their models?

Not sure what you mean about loading addresses, don't they all do that? isn't that what they are designed for?

Not familar with your model but surely they have a function to enter addresses and save them in a 'favourites' folder? Otherwise whats the point.

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman, then always be the Batman

Maybe slightly off topic but Navman GPS units have really fallen behind the pack now. I consider Garmin one of the best in terms of functionality and ease of use at the moment.

Anyway, battery life is never long on GPS units as they are not designed to be a mobile device.
