TLS76 Posted August 2, 2003 Share Posted August 2, 2003 Hi there! As i were recently buying AAA sized batteries on a weekly basis, i finally ordered a nice set of NiMH rechargeables (750mAh) and run into a funny software problem of the Geko201. In the Setup->System menu of the unit, you can switch the battery type from Alkaline to NiMH. Ok so far so good. This makes sense, as an Alkaline battery has a nominal voltage of 1.5V, while rechargeables mostly have 1.2V and you should get a reasonable battery-voltage-bar display with useing both types. Ok, and now the odd thing: If i use the NiMH set for 2hours, the battery bars drop down very quickly, with the setup switched to NiMH, but if i switch the setup back to Alkaline, i immdediately gain two bars in the battery display. Could it be, that Garmin mixed up the labels and the Alkaline setup is in reality the NiMH setup and vice versa?! I´m just wondering...
