    I've had units asleep for WEEKS and they wake right up when vehicle turns on. The sleep battery life is very long indeed.

    I meant to ask, how long GO Premium navi can sleep with a fully charged battery before it is empty?

    Hi there MJH48 -
    The GO PREMIUM RANGE has a quoted battery run time alone of about 1 hour not being connected to the vehicle power supply, so I would only recommend placing the unit into the sleep/standby time for a very short period of time (10/20 mins if you are staying in the vehicle for a faster device start up) as the internal circuitry could drain the battery within a few hours even though the screen is off.
    I would also advise to keep the battery fully charged even when not using for longer periods of time as discharged batteries cause irreparable damage.
    Hope this helps. :)

    Battery life is more than hours, but how long?
    The Go Premium battery lasts for more than a few hours.
    I kept it asleep overnight and in the morning it was okay.
    It would be good to know how long it can sleep for days or hours
