    Not it does not..... It can be set to shut off if the power to the gps is turned off. This is set in the battery save preference menu.

    My battery seems to last only a short while.  How often must I recharge it.  Maybe I am not holding the button down long enough???.  Please help.

    It normally takes about 3-4 hours to rechage a battery. Depending on the exact model a battery should last about 1.5 hours or  more. If you battery life is much shorter then that after a full charge it probably means it time to replace the battery.

     

    When you turn off the gps, the gps doesn't really turn off, it actually goes into standby....this is done so that it boots up within 5-10 sec after you turn it back on instead of taking 30-40 sec with a cold start.  So the gps will discharge the battery over time. I don't know how long it takes to discharge the battery in standby. Someone on the forum may have some information about that.

     

    Don't know if this answered your question.
