I use the GPS waypoint function.  Does your GPS have it?  I just push a button, and the location and altitude are stored.  I then download the waypoints to my computer, and it adds them to my map.  I can then zoom in to the map and see the location within a few feet.

About batteries:  I use a Garmin 60CSx portable GPS.  I can mount it to the dash of the car, or remove it and carry it with me.  It uses AA batteries.  I always keep a battery charger and a bunch of spare batteries with me.  The new NiMH batteries will hold a charge just about forever.  Also, some portable GPSes have a battery saver option that you can turn on.
