Recommended Settings for Extended Battery Life during Walking

posted this on 9 Feb 2017

Below are the recommended settings for using your Active 10 or Active 12 GPS device whilst walking. We find that the below settings provide a much longer battery life than the default settings.

  • Main menu > settings > power control > automatic power saving > ”always on”
  • Main menu > settings > power control > automatic screen turn off > ”off after 30 seconds”
  • Main menu > settings > advanced power control>power saving mode > ”advanced”. NOTE - This will disable trail up.
  • Main menu > settings > backlight > ‘around 60-70%’. You can use the backlight boost button above the on/off button for short bursts of 100% backlight.
