Even with a 1A rated charger, my Nokia goes flat when using Navigon for 2 hours. It's impossible to go on a reasonable drive! Surely this cannot be true...
Disabling 4G, background tasks and setting low screen brightness does not help. Phone still discharges.
Any similar experiences or suggestions?

I am using the Visible Green Car Charger Cable from Dexim with a PowerJolt Dual Universal Micro From Griffin didn't buy them together and the Griffin Dual is just a 12 volt 1 amp charger... I bought them both at BestBuy but you can purchases them both from just about anywhere even the suppliers website... The Dexim cable only lights up when the phone is taking a charge so far I can confirm I have two cables and they really do work... They do look a bit fragile... The Griffin Dual USB charger does charge my iPad3 even though it's not the higher amperage version or at least the charge indicator says its charging... I am posting this because I remember before I bought the Dexim cables my Samsung Focus S and my Nokia Lumia 920 both were dead when using GPS for a long time even though I had them connected to the charge cables so I think it's best to use a better grade cable or at least try something new...

That's most likely a navigon issue. I've used 920 with Nokia drive, it lasts about 3-3.5hours before ran out. And I tried a car charger(not sure about specs but 2$ from amazon), it goes on for 3 hours and still at 70%. That's more than 8 hours straight and I feel that's enough for most of my needs
