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.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
