I use an etrex20 with eneloop rechargeables and one set will easily last 24 hours if you go easy on the back-light. I typically use no back-light during the day and as low as I can at night. When it's dark out you don't need much back-light anyway.

ride with gps has a page with some good info on how to use the etrex with their routes.

I also use openstreets maps which I update each spring.
