Guest Snooginsguy Posted October 27, 2007 Report Share Posted October 27, 2007 Hey y'all, Just wondering if anyone had thoughts on how to keep the GPS chip active while the unit is in standby. It would be nice to be able to shut off the screen etc. and keep track of my location while hiking, or driving for a while on a long stretch of highway and not have the battery drain quite so much. As is right now, as soon as I hit the power button the GPS chip shuts down and no more data comes in. If I use an external GPS receiver (GlobalSat Bt-338) it will keep whatever program running that is tracking my movement, so I know that it is not the program dropping off but the chip for sure. Anything, a reg tweak, simple program, third party...? Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
