Hi Michael,

I'm sure I've probably said this before plus others have their own opinion 
too but I personally have had success with the GlobalSat BT338.  It's 
batter life is rated at 17 hours, it has a handy auto-power-off feature 
plus I personally favour the push-button power control over the switch 
some other units use.

Having said that newer receivers are hitting the market with various 
chipsets and features all the time!

Best regards,
