Battery Usage

GPSLogbook and iOS are optimized to reduce the battery consumption.

Although, the usage of the GPS module consumes a lot of energy.

Therefore, GPSLogbook brings you settings parameters to decide if you need high quality GPS data (the setting is called "Best") with a really heavy battery consumption or "Good" or "Medium" accurate data with less energy consumption.

We recognized on our tours over years now that "Good" accuracy is perfect for our needs.

If you plan to do a trip lasting several days we recommend a cigarette lighter adapter for your car or a battery pack.
