Just wanted to drop a comment here... maybe it will be useful to others.  Longtime user & occasional contributor to the trails map.  Noticed that my GPS (76something) has been eating up battery like something else lately.  So I ran some tests with a voltage/current meter.  Bear with me, I can't remember the exact power of 10 (since I did this almost 2 weeks ago & just got my forum account activated today!).  But what I saw was that with Northwest Topos and Northwest Trails enabled, drain was something 180mA.  If it was just Northwest Topos by itself, it was 110mA.  City Navigator was slightly less.  I think that City Navigator + NW Trails was the same as City navigator by itself.
