Given that my return period is 14 days and im about halfway there, I wanted to test the Nokia Drive function on the way home from work this morning. With Drive up on the screen (USA map downloaded, and voice with street guidance downloaded) the phone would discharge even with being plugged in. Im using the motorola rapid charger which is considered a very powerful and efficent charger. I've never had a problem before with my other phones using GPS (Waze/google navigation) with Pandora, and being plugged in. Anyone else have the same problem? This can be the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

i think i am going to take mine back too. just too many bugs.
using it with my mac, and the mac sync app worked great for about a week. now it just crashes every time i plug the phone in.
and the internet sharing just works for about 30 seconds to a minute then just stops working. then you have to restart the phone to get that to work again.

I used mine as a GPS in the car and the battery discharged faster than it was charging, but I looked up my sig. lighter adapter and it's not rated for much so I ordered a more powerful one hoping to fix that issue. Some of those adapters are very low power. oh and I also disabled NFC and my battery had gotten much better in the past couple days and the phone has not been nearly as warm when using the GPS.

Google navigaton has been "beta" for a long time and it's never given me any issues. That being said, google does everything over data, Nokia drive should use even less power since its already got the maps downloaded onto the phone.
