Re: handled GPS consumption while in achor watch mode?

The Anchor Alarm app on my Ipad runs in the background with the monitor off and uses approx 10% of battery life overnight. More expensive hardware, but substantially more useful than a hand held gps. In fact, that is exactly why I bought my Ipad. I wanted a backup gps. I did not want an Ipad at the time and now don't know how I would get along without it. Rented movies, real time weather radar (when close enough to shore), wind charts, email, navigation charts, pictures, etc, etc.
