No experience yet on how it handles longer tracks.
Does the 1030+ have a bigger battery than the regular 1030 or are you using the supplemental battery power pack? Using only 30% of the battery capacity for 21 hours total time is astonishing.

I think I need to experiment so more to restore some of my battery life, it might be too many sensors or courses with too much info on them.
