Thanks. Will try your music suggestion soon as I get home.
As for the power question, I had an HTC EVO and the GPS used to draw more power than the charger provided. Granted its been years since I've really used a car charger because most of my drives have been short. Not to mention this runs newer Android.
Today I left work, my phone was 100%. I drove for an hour using GPS, took 5 or 6 pictures, used GPS for another hour, here I am about 5 minutes from home am at 24%.
In my OP I said wrong.. I don't have a charger yet. Will have to see if radio shack has a 1.5a in stock. Most places only carry 1a.

2 - i see no problem with this..are you concerned about heat? or it drawing too much power? I've never had an issue doing both of the above mentioned things and using a charger, go for it. Ive driven from NY to TX using gps and audio through my car through 3.5 and never had any issues with any phones i had.
