[Q] S3 - Cyanogenmod 10.1.3-RC2-d2att - Using Google Maps causes major battery drain
I noticed lately that my battery has been draining quite a bit when using Google Maps for navigation. It's gotten to the point where 30 mins of continuous use for navigation has completely drained my battery. Now this has happened at least 5 times in the last few weeks now and it has rendered my phone completely useless for Navigation. I did have the Cyanogenmod 10.1.2 ROM installed but recently installed 10.1.3-RC2-d2att and the problem still seems to persist.
I've ready many posts talking about turning off GPS, Location Services etc. but I can't obviously turn off GPS when I need to use my phone for navigation. I also noticed that using a car charger didn't do much as the battery was draining much much faster then the battery was charging. Also , the phone seems to very very hot.
