    In all seriousness the only thing I've noticed with rechargeables is that when the low battery alarm appears it means the unit will be shutting down in the next couple of minutes whereas alkalines usually give me several more minutes of use before the unit shuts itself off.
    cmon jake, what can you possibly notice different about a megellan, its either not working or its uhhh not working...

    and as for the batteries, didnt you see the new magellan TRF is selling??!!?? you can fit as many batteries in it as you want!!!

    and for the on topic note: i've noticed that too about the rechargable batteries, when they're dead they're dead, sometimes i can pull em out and put em in my flashlight or somethin else, but not the rechargeables... they just die.
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    My connections are very tight too and on my first one, Garmin replaced the broken terminals but still ended up sending me a new unit. This one just started shutting down and it does it standing still.
