Re: Nav 5 battery time
If she agrees that the Nav V is worth taking, then maybe it's worth taking a backup battery and USB cable to recharge it. But...
I've been backpacking for well over 25 years all over the world and you couldn't pay me to hump a GPS the size and weight of a Nav V around in my pack. Especially one that has maps which cover roads and not hiking trails. Since it's unlikely that your daughter will want to watch her progress on the screen when trails aren't represented, battery life shouldn't really matter, since she might only turn it on when needed. if it's only "to establish their location" I agree with others that any cellphone will do, even without signal. But knowing where you are and turning that into help to get yourself get where you want to go are two different things. So unless you can somehow set up the Nav V to show topo maps, honestly, a paper map, compass, and some basic skills are a far better option than carrying a heavy GPS.
