    Battery drains when plugged in and using Google Navigation

    So I noticed over the past couple of days that when I use my phone as a GPS (Google Navigation) that the battery drains even when I have it plugged in with my Motorola Car Charger and the Motorola Car Mount for the Droid. This really bugs me because if I have a low battery from normal usage, and then I need to travel using my GPS, I can't, because the battery on the phone will just die...

    Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix to this?

    We have been discussing this on this thread:

    I don't believe it has anything to do with running maps and I've done some extensive testing on it for the last week.

    Glad to know it is not just me. It does that on both my droid and my wife's.

    I noticed it the first weekend I had it and Verizon Wireless told me it was the fault of my T-Mobile charger I was using in the car. It wasn't, but you can't sit there and argue with them when they claim that there isn't a standard micro-USB cable.

    It will charge all the way up, stay there for a while, and then begin to drain. If you look at the battery status, though, it indicates that it is charging.
