Im running an old Garmin710 which recently has been running out of battery life at around 4 hours.
I used to get at least 8.
I tinkered with the settings to use it on a statioary trainer in the gym last week, since then I've had the problem. I cant seem to find anything changed that may eat battery life so Im thinking that the battery my be just old and worn out.( a bit like me :( )
Does this mean its time to get a new 510?

I have replaced my battery twice in 5 years, 2nd time recently. Last battery had relatively quick dropoff in capacity at the end. On a 705.
