Hijacking this thread!!!
I'm about to pick up the garmin gpsmap 66i it's a gps plus has the s.o.s feature.I figured i'm probably going to spend the rest of my life hunting,fishing and exploring the ADK's,so it would be a great peace of mind to have.I've been communicating back and forth with garmin and it seems like the right unit for me.The only issue I have is the internal battery it last 35 hours or 200 hours in expedition mode.More then enough to get me through a day trip.It also burns more the more you text with it.Most of the reviewers use a solar panel to recharge in the field.This is not something i'd want to do at all. I'm looking for info on those power packs.I had a cheapie from Walmart it only lasted a year then wouldn't charge anymore.Anyone have any experience with these power packs?
btw all the inreaches have internal batteries.
