I'm looking at a system that uses an Altina GPS receiver and adapter
cable for the Tungsten E. However, the Tungsten E is notorious for
short battery life without recharging. However when attached to the
computer through the hot link cable it receives a trickle charge.
Enough for it to run and a little more to recharge the battery.

Does the Altina GPS receiver assist the Tungsten in this manner? i.e.
will I still be limited by the Tungsten battery?
