No, the 1030+ has the same size battery. It's much better than the 1030 on battery life though. He's using "Battery Save Mode" to get 30% for 21 hours. I think the 1030 has the same option (look at the settings menu in the home screen).

No, it's not "courses with too much info". Sensors might use a bit more (but likely not noticeable more). Updating the map screen (if it's displayed) uses more than a data screen.
