One of our very first 2G Remora battery-powered GPS units got strapped to a lamp post outside our office in Johannesburg, and set to do periodic uploads every 2 hours.
Two years later and still going strong! Not bad from a set of 4 x C cell Alkaline batteries. It’s not doing trip tracking but is a good illustration of the performance when getting a periodic position like this (every 2 hours).
