Re: The myth of the battery hungry GPS once again!

GPS being left turned on and actually being actively used could be two different things. If the GPS on my phone is being used it drains the battery in 2-3 hours where my phone normally lasts 2 full days.

And I have a GPS logger which can log continuously for 15-20 hours on a battery which is much smaller than the battery in my camera.

So I think we should forget about anecdotal evidence from GPS enabled non-camera hardware.

I don't know how much battery the GPS drains when its being actively used in A77 vs. when not used at all. If you have that metric I will happily stand corrected.

I don't. I have never experienced any difference which was so significant that I bothered to test it more precisely. I just keep the GPS on.
