You might want to try some lithium AA cells.  They start out around 1.65V.  They are MUCH less prone to leakage than any "alkaleak" battery and have a very long shelf-life (i.e. good for low drain memory backups). As always, when adding a backup battery to a GPS, verify that the battery connection pin is not trying to charge an external super-cap or nicad.


> I change the batteries every 2 years not so much for voltage as concern for
leakage. Then use the old battery in my wireless mouse.
