GPS

When I use GPS on my phone the battery drains extremely fast so to be useful I have to keep it plugged into my car's power outlet. That is fact and objective.

Now as far as GPS on the A55, 65, and 77, all of which I own or have owned, I never noticed a significant difference in battery drain with GPS turned on but just in case I do leave it off as I don't find it particularly useful. Maybe if I was a World traveler I'd feel differently.

Misuse of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
