Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Sounds great. How’s the power consumption? How fast does it suck the batteries down?
    How do the “built in” software and charts get updated?

    Apparently Garmin will sell an annual chart update card, or download to your own card. They didn’t have power specs there but noted that bright screens suck more power.
