Re: handled GPS consumption while in achor watch mode?
The 76CS manual reports Battery Life a 20 hours with typical use. Absent the back light, it will likely be longer.
A useful alternative to the Anchor
alarm is the MOB Function. Punching up the MOB button when the anchor
is deployed will give one constant range and bearing to the anchor
. If the range to the MOB exceeds one's swing circle, on is dragging. We have two GPS
devices and use the Anchor
Alarm on one--set when the anchor is dropped--and the MOB function on the other, set at the same time.
