You know like the ones you would use in a camera

Thanks,

I am assuming your are referring to rechargable AAA batteries. I use them in my digital camera. I use AA rechargable batteries in my GPS.

I don't know about using the in a GPS but my wife buys them for our camera and they are really work well in it (up to 7 times longer life). I would assume they would work well in a GPS also. She uses Energizer E2 Lithium AA size.

My GPS ate batteries up so fast that I went out to Walmart and bought the same batteries I use in my digital camera. Been using them for several weeks now and have not experienced any problems. Batteries sure as heck last longer now.

I got tired of my Garmin etrx ledgend eating batteries and went to the rechargables. Now my battery costs are less and the impact on the enviroment is reduced too.
