    I apologize. I was measuring wrong. I will ask a mod to delete this post.

    I wanted to know if 80 mA was normal current for my GEM to be drawing when the car was off. In searching Google I found that I was measuring incorrectly since the GEM is in an "alert mode" for 30 minutes after disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. I followed the instructions in the 2nd post in this thread and when I measured the current after waiting 30 minutes like I was supposed to, the total current draw when the car was off was under 10mA:
