Only reason i can think of for the cling film is to cover a fresh tattoo. Thing is i can't imagine anybody wanting to go hiking with freshly tattooed knees !

He didn't have any tattoos. Someone on Facebook commented that it might be something to do with easing the pain of arthritis or rheumatics.

I don't very often bother with recording my track, after all I know where I've been. But, I thought you can turn down the number of recorded points per hour. I've done this with my in reach from every two minutes to every two hours, they charge per point. I thought viewranger did this as well, won't this save power?


Not really.  The power mainly is used tracking the satellites and screen time.

Yes but for how long? The OP is talking about days continuous use it seems, not recording a walk each day.  If you have it on 24/7 would it really last 'for days'?  Mine wouldn't even when new  :-\


If on the other hand he wants to record a walk each day then yes, tablet, smartphone, GPS  should all do it.

Thanks Roger. What a fantastic part of the country that you call home. I look forward to exploring North Warwickshire. Almost in the centre of England. So handy to everywhere.

I have a tablet. While it may last more than a day it doesn't if GPS is continually on and tracking, which is what is wanted.
Either spare batteries or a power pack are going to be needed to meet the initial requirement.

My tablet only uses about 15% of the battery using viewranger to record a route and to see where you are now and then. You need to switch the Wifi off though. I wont need spare batteries or a power bank this weekend for 3 days. If your tablet and battery are past their best this might not be the case, my old tablet wouldn't last a day without charging it.

Thanks for your comments
there is so much choice now that you can go round & round and on & on, but sooner or later you have to settle for something.


As I said, I already have an Akto, though it is a bit battered, and I wanted something lighter for low level backpacking in reasonable weather
But I didn't want a tarp or to import anything myself


EMS had an offer on the Hubba so I ordered that fairly quickly in case the offer expired


I have also been recommended Naturehike tents. If I was on a budget I would seriously consider them
