Re: Does gps drain battery

Yes, anything your camera does drains the battery.  The more your camera has to do the more power it uses.

Please try this @linkermd

 

Turn off Wi-Fi and Voice Command. 

Those 2 features are always on. 

 

Before you turn off your camera disconnect or turn off the Wi-Fi and turn off voice command and wake up on voice function.
