    I've noticed that as well. I thought it was because it was up on the dash, sitting in the sun. Then it happened on a day that was pouring rain. It even gets hot if it's only in use on a short trip, like 30 minutes.

    The phone will get hot when you use it for many applications. It can take some heat. The only time I'd worry about it is if it's just too hot to touch. I've seen maybe two people have that happen.

    my phone once got to that point, i got the phone just in time for a 4 hour drive and I had the GPS on and was playing alot of games and of course new batteries suck because they don't hold a charge for long.

    But yeah getting the phone a little toasty is fine

    The phone does get very warm when using Maps/GPS.

    Recently I took a trip to SF and used GPS for about 45 minutes to get to Joe's Cable Car (which i recommend anyone to go! greatest burger ever, imo.) Well my friend was helping me navigate since I didn't have my dock. Said the phone got pretty warm and asked if it was normal, this was about 40 minutes into the trip until it was handled.

    So it is normal, but after 30 minutes of use I'm not so sure, but it wouldn't surprise me if it got that warm.

    The phone makes a nice handwarmer for those of us in colder climates.

    My GPS got stuck in the "on" mode one day...not sure why...but the only way that I realized this was when I went to pick up the phone...and it was cookin'!

    It must be something with the GPS that makes it so hot.

    same thing happened to me yesterday. Went from columbus to cinncinati and it got up to 137.6 F. At least, that's what my battery/temp widget said. I was like. :O
