Russ' question is very important. A battery in a phone is not like a long lasting battery in a GPS unit. Even then, any battery can fail.
AlmostThere is correct, these conversations are public, and for the many others who may read this, one should never go into the wilderness depending solely on GPS. They fail. Batteries fail. These things should only serve as a complement to map and compass skills.
