Or for $3 more
On sale now down from $40.

It probably still won't keep up with all that current drain you're producing. My suggestion is to get a real gps for around a $100 like an entry level Garmin and be done with it.

Here's one on sale now

Nice basic one that will get the job done and people are giving it great reviews. A real GPS is going to work so much better than a phone.

What USB Car Adapter did you use with it? I've read that typical 1Amp usb car adapters are unable to charge or even maintain battery level when cellphone is running with all radios enabled due to the large amount of power draw. I'm looking at a small and very discreet 2Amp usb car adapter, which should be able to provide enough juice for the phone running with all radios on.

Some considerations I've been looking at:

I had a power converter and used the outlet charger and USB that came with the phone. Yes the phone did loose power while on the charger, but didn't go dead.

Anything that's 1A 5 watts is the maximum the phone will accept. I wouldn't advise going over 1 amp.

I used the Griffin charger before. I don't think it kicks out the power as advertised. My phones always charged very slowly with that charger.
