I like to monitor barometric changes at my desk and have been using my GPSMap 60VSX as a barograph. I hook it up to a USB, set it to the pressure page and leave it on 24/7 with the backlight on.

Is there any reason that I shouldn't be doing this, for example burning out the screen or overheating etc., or is it designed to work in this way?

Personally I would turn the back light off but you shouldn't worry about the screen - it's designed for long time use.
