Anyone using their phone on a motocycle? I thought my android was going to be the perfect solution for my motorocycle - GPS, statistics & music all in one device but after a few hours into a ride I get an overheat message and then the phone will not charge. The phone is warm but it's not too hot to hold. Normally I will be running GPS, Ulysse Speedmeter and music when I'm on the open road. If I leave the screen on, which is nice for a digital speedometer, it happens sooner but even with the the screen off and not using the speedmeter the overheating issue will not go away. The issue has happened with 3 different model phones (Droid 2, G2 & G3) over the last three years. Is this just normal with GPS running and the sun on the phone? Is my power supply? I currently have a 3BR Powersports TAPP instead of the 12volt adpater. Is the heat in the battery? Would changing the battery when it heats up help?
I try to get 1 good ride a week, 300-600 miles (6-10 hours) on the back roads. I use the GPS to mark out stops to see in the middle of nowhere, rustic road, lighthouses, rodeside oddities, etc..... I think the GPS is a better solution a sheet of paper with directions to 10-15 locations. I am hoping there is a solution this issue resolved or is it time to pick up a GPS?
