IF I carry any electronics at all it will be an iphone and it doesn't get turned on unless I really need it. Paper maps are easy to print and don't run out of batteries, nor does a compass.
My compass has even been scaled back to just a tiny little neck worn thing, used to orient the map.
I will sometimes crank up the phone to see if there are any interesting features nearby, but rarely to navigate.
