Are you still experiencing battery drain with 8.06 update? My device still drops 3-5% a day when turned off or when in "sleep".
Do you still experience this battery drain?
With the latest firmware 10.23 it appears that it has stopped for me. I turned off the device on 3rd of September with 93% of battery charge and I had…
Hi, I confirm, no more battery drain. After 3 weeks of no usage only 4% lost.
Same for me. Firmware beta 10.14, then 10.24 (pre final 10.25): no battery drain in power off mode after 2-3 weeks.
I've had edge devices since the 705 in 2008. I've have never switched the various devices off - just let them atuo-sleep. My Explore 2 (8.06) loses about 10% a day. Out on a ride, it uses about 5% an hour (I use north up, not track up, so my screen possibly doesn't get refreshed as often). I'm ok with this, but just a little puzzled as my 1000 could go weeks in sleep without seeming to lose any power. I say "seeming" because I can't be sure that the power meter is reliable. I always leave my Explore on Indoor, hoping it won't waste battery trying to search for a gps signal. I haven't tried switching off.
I'm also on 9.07 and have been decided to try Power Off (in the past, I have just let my Garmins go to sleep). After a full charge, I powered off and have checked every day for the past 10 days or so. Battery has been negligible (still shows 92% today). There is a big proviso here: I'm not 100% confident that the display is accurate because there have been problems with earlier firmware. Would be embarrassing leading a ride relying on a faulty display! To be fair, I haven't had any problems during the past 6-9 months (3-4 rides per week) so hopefully that's now sorted.
Hi, It was in Power off mode. Anyway a device in such a state should not battery drain at all. Once I thought I had at least 50% battery but after some days (I don't Remember how many) the battery was below 20%. My previous device ( 530) was much better.
