Charging

Thanks for all the input.

One more question: will the Garmin stay powered/charge while connected to the laptop for updates and BaseCamp transfers? Or, must I buy an AC charger as well?

It has a battery that allows it to be used w/o power. Not sure home long as I'm still learning about it

Grumpy,
Your 2015 factory option how does the head unit connect to the FW and how big is the TV unit. I looked at another post of yours and I did not know it was also a GPS Map unit. I just added the G rated tires to my Pinnacle order and might also add the camera. Give me your likes and dislikes
tks
Rock

The unit will be powered/charged while connected to the laptop. I've also plugged it into a USB adapter to charge it - same principal as my iPhone. I have rarely used it without some type of power source, and then only for short periods, so no idea how long the battery will last. That said, and it may not be a good comparison, but I have a small Garmin unit that I use on my bicycle and the battery on that lasts about six hours.

The Garmin website says "Battery Life - up to one hour" for the RV 760 LMT.
That big screen apparently takes a lot of juice to illuminate.
