Bike GPS with AA batteries?
Is there a bike GPS unit that utilizes AA battery cells instead of the rechargeable LIION? I looked at the Legend 800 / 810 and 500 / 510 units but they use the LI ION and are PRICEY for what they are. Why I need AA? For being on vacation and not having access all the time to a charger / outlet.
So my other and probably better / cheaper option is mounting a etrex onto my stem. Any suggestions which etrex? Would like basic maps for South America are they included?
Also how long / how many tracks will the Etrex save? Unlimited? Can I after the vacation just connect the USB cable and retrieve all the GPX files from my tracks without special Garmin SW?
Currently use a Sports tracker on my Nokia phone and it works great but the battery dies after 5 hours of use :-)
