Does running in GPS mode put more of a drain on the battery?

I run the GPS every time I'm out as I have some larger places and I need to know where I've been and I mark some finds also
I can get around 10 hrs I figure as I hunt for 2-3 hrs day and charge the batteries after the 3rd hunt.
Never run out of juice yet

It has to Ralphiejc any time you enable a new function.
with that being said I used to be concerned about battery life at first.
After I started recording find spots 3yrs ago I have left mine on continuous and have not had dead battery issues and I am talking 10+ hour hunts with wireless head phones.
The amperage draw has to be minimal :shrug:
