Motorola Droid X :: Car Dock With Google Navigator - Stops Charging

Aug 8, 2010

Just got back from a 500 mile road trip. I was using the Droid X car dock and Google Navigator. I noticed that about after 15 minutes the phone would no longer be actively charging (the lightning bolt icon in the battery was not displaying). Within two hours the battery was depleted. I know Navigator is still in beta.

Is there a way to input multiple stops in the navigator and have it plan a route? I could finally throw my Thomas Bros. guide out.

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Stops Charging When USB Service Dies

Jul 27, 2010

I'm the author of SystemPanel, which includes task management (killing) features. I've recently noticed a problem with my Droid X where it suddenly will stop accepting a charge. For example, the screenshot below shows that the phone plugged in overnight, yet battery continues to drain: With a bit of testing, it appears that killing the app "usb" results in this behavior occurring. Once it has been killed, the phone will never accept a charge until it the phone is rebooted.

I would greatly appreciate if a fellow Droid X owner could verify this for me. To do this, use SystemPanel (Lite version will work fine, as will ANY task killer, or the OS' own task killer) to terminate the "usb" program. The full name of the process is "com.motorola.usb". Any task manager should also reproduce the behavior if you perform a "end all" or "kill all" operation. Then unplug the device from USB/AC power (if it was plugged in) and then reconnect it. You should see no indication of a USB connection and/or charging if your device suffers the same problem. The issue can then be corrected by rebooting the phone. Here is the process as shown by SystemPanel: It appears that Motorola has incorrectly allowed this process to be user-killable and/or has failed to automatically restart it in the event that it terminates or otherwise fails. Would greatly appreciate feedback on this problem, if this is not unique to my device, I'll be modifying SytemPanel immediately to avoid ever killing this process.

Motorola Droid :: Multimedia Charging Dock W Froyo

Aug 4, 2010

It is no secret that the Froyo update we are using has a different docking app. (Nexus One?)

Two interesting things:

1. There are dock settings now (Audio settings greyed out & docking sound)

2. I'm not opposed to the new look - however, is there any way to keep it on screen? The stupid green screen saver appears after a while, and I can't read it at night (yes I'm blind - but that's why I like the old Motorola one so much)

Motorola Droid :: Sudden Change In Media Dock Charging Behavior?

May 1, 2010

Three Droids in the family, had for approx 1 month, with no real battery problems other than drain with GPS use. Battery usage extremely predictable. Until yesterday. Day before yesterday, wife's phone reported battery charge of ~30% after being on media dock charger all night. Figured it was a connection glitch of some kind. Happened again today, then while I was looking at the phone, battery went from ~20% to 100%. Now seemed more like a status reading problem. Picked up my phone from its media dock - a different one - and surprise surprise, it too was reading ~30% after being on dock charging all night.
(Yes, we have power and the docks are plugged in.) Powering down phone doesn't reset status, still reads ~30%.

Motorola Droid X :: Need A Google Car Dock

Motorola Droid X :: Car Dock Nav NOT Standard Google Nav - Works Poorly

Sep 14, 2010

I got my DX almost two weeks ago, and immediately ordered the Motorola Car Dock. When you dock it, and it goes into car dock mode, it has a "My Location" button, which takes you to a google map with some overlayed buttons (some kind of skin, essentially). You can select "Nav" on that screen, but it does not take you to the Google Nav app, instead it opens up a dialog box, where you can enter your destination. Then it will work like Google Nav. It really stinks that if you return to the cardock home screen, to change your music or something, when you come back to the My Location> Nav, you will have to re-enter your destination.

Another huge frustration from the lack of integration with the Google Nav app, is when you use the standard Google Nav App (like set a destination, before you leave the house), and then get in the car and enter car dock mode, you can not access your current Nav through car dock mode. You can still get back to it, but you have to exit "car dock mode", and open the Google Nav App. Anyone have any solutions to this? If it were possible, the simplest thing would be to remove the "My Location" button and replace it with a shortcut to the Google Nav App. It does not appear that you can change any of the preset buttons. There is one button that you can set, but I have it set for Pandora, since I use it frequently.

Motorola Droid X :: Car Dock And Google Maps Navigation Error

Jul 22, 2010

Just got off the phone with two VZW reps who couldn't give me an answer and suggested that I use VZ Navigator since Verizon can support that software, LOL. My Problem: Used Google Maps Navigator for the first time today. Was using my Motorola Car Dock I purchased and got the address put in and everything then tapped "Navigate". Si there I am and have my nice map view of the route I'm taking and every 30 or so seconds it would flip to a grey screen with multiple tiered options, first of which was "my location" and the address. Below that was the option to tap "Navigate" again which took me back to the map view as it should be. Problem is that it just kept popping back into the grey tier screen every 30 or so seconds. I took it off the dock and this doesn't seem to be happening while not on the dock although I get another message telling me to detach the charger from the wall to conserve battery...WTF? After speaking in depth with VZW reps they seem clueless. First rep told me to try and uninstall Google maps and reinstall (which come to find out I can't do after speaking to the second rep) while the second rep seemed to want to glorify his Droid Incredible and how great it was over the Droid X. he offered to reset my phone but advised I would have to sync all my contacts again, redo all my widgets and reconfigure all my e-mail addresses. Anybody else experiencing this problem with the car Dock and Google Navigation?

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Navigator - Battery Usage Tip

May 16, 2010

I did some testing with the Navigator yesterday and I have to say it's absolutely awesome. I'm not sure if anyone has posted this, couldn't find any mention of it, but I want to share my battery usage experience with it as well as some other cool things I noticed.

Very cool battery saver:
I used it for a 15-minute drive, keeping it only in the Notification Bar. When you are in the Navigation app, you can press the Home softkey to go back to your home screen. This keeps Navigator working in the background, but it is not drawing the maps and using the screen. You can press the Power button to put your phone to sleep, and the voice actually still talks to you and tells you when to turn. And even better, I started this trip with 76% battery and ended with 76% battery.

Now, the not-so-cool.
I used it for a 30-minute drive, keeping the screen on and letting it show me the map the entire way. I started the drive with 54% battery ended with 34% battery. So definitely keep it on the charger if you are using it for a long drive. But another awesome thing I noticed. I made a phone call toward the end of my destination, just to see what would happen. I used the Home key to back out of the Navigator (but keeping it in the background, as I said above), then made my call as normal. The Navigator still gave me directions while I was on the phone. It came through the earpiece now, so the other person doesn't hear it. How freaking cool is that?

HTC :: Incredible Stops Charging Once It Reaches 89%

May 31, 2010

So like everyone else I have to unplug my phone every morning and plug it back in until the light turns green once more to get a full charge. I'm am 99.99% positive that the incredible just stops charging once it reaches 100%.Every morning I unplug it and within 3 minutes it's down to about 89%. So I plug it back in and get ready for work and in about 20 minutes it is green and back to 100% (a real 100%). I hadn't really thought about it until I used Google navigation for the first time this weekend. My phone was at about 92% when I left for my 2 hour trip. I plugged it into my car charger, which definitely works, and was on my a way. I looked at my battery about halfway there and it said it was fully charged. So i reach my destination, unplug my phone and it drops from 100% to 58% instantly. The whole day I thought it was the charger but on my trip back home I used the navigation again and plugged the car charger in. I started at 42% and when I got home I was at 89%.So, it appears that once the incredible gets to 100% it just doesn't accept power from any charger anymore. Hopefully that can be fixed with an update. This was with the stock battery. I have no idea if it is the same with the TP2 or Seidio battery.I wish it was like every other phone I've had that still had a trickle charge even at 100%.

Android :: What's Difference Between Google Navigator And Google Navigation?

Aug 3, 2010

A client of mine also has an Eris and I was helping her get her navigation system set up and teach her how to use it. I wanted to put the google navigator icon (the blue arrow) on her home screen but could not find it anywhere in her apps. I did find the google navigation (map icon) app and set that up for her. So, my questions are: What is the difference between the two? How come I couldn't find the navigator app on her phone (on mine, it's under "programs")?

HTC Incredible :: Battery Indicator Stops Showing Charging Symbol

I don't do anything to the phone to cause this, but would love to know why it's happening if anyone knows.

Motorola Droid :: Multitask While Using Navigator?

Nov 8, 2009

I used the navigation function in the "car home" app this weekend for the first time. The nav. worked great. Voice directions were clear and actually helpful for a change and the gps kept a lock on me. However, I had to make a call to tell my friend I was going to be a little late, only to find out after the call ended that navigation was lost. Luckily, I remembered the address and re-started navigation. So two things, I suppose: 1) Can you easily recall previous destinations? 2) Is there a specific way to make/receive calls while using the app? I noticed if I use use the back button and go through the car app (contacts, voice search) I can get back and forth from nav. to phone pretty well. But it still doesn't seem right.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Looking For Charging Dock Cradle

Apr 11, 2010

Does anyone have or know of a good charging dock that is both functionally and aesthetically good? I've seen plenty on eBay and random accessory sites, but most of them are very square/blocky and very unattractive. I've also heard that the MyTouch 3G dock works, but doesn't fit perfectly so I'd like to stay away from that.

General :: Sony Z1 - Screen Won't Stay Off When Charging Via Dock

Mar 13, 2014

I've got a new Sony Z1 Compact (Great phone by the way!)I wanted to make use of the magnetic charging port so picked up a dock, a couple of cables and a couple of USB -> Magnetic charger adaptors.The cables works absolutely fine and charges away very happily.My dock, and my USB -> Magnetic charger adaptor however both try to put the device into Dock mode.

That in itself works OK, but the problem comes when I want the screen to stay "OFF".The phone will constantly wake itself up - about once every 90 seconds or so.The screen comes on, and then times out and goes black again.It's almost as if someone was pressing the "power" button.

As I was writing this I have been trying using the "Daydream" feature to just show a black image.This also doesn't work... every 90 seconds or so it will return to the home screen before fading back to the daydream screen.

Android :: Google Navigator - Voice Not Functional

May 17, 2010

I have a Droid Eris running OTA 2.1. I just tried using Google Navigator for the first time this morning. When I ran it it led me to install the text to speech app. Unfortunately, I had my SD card mounted (for music in my car) at the time and the install failed. I dropped out, un-mounted the card, manually installed the app, and re-started Google Nav. I have no sound in it at all now. It is not muted, and the nav volume is at max. I have heard it work on my wife's phone. The nav software was my main reason for getting an Android phone. Does anyone have any suggestions or am I going to have to factory reset?

Android :: Launching Google Maps And Navigator From Application

Aug 18, 2010

I have an android application which allows the user to open up google maps or navigator to show a certain address. This functionality was working in the past, but now I get the following error and the app crashes:
ERROR/AndroidRuntime(2165):
android.content.ActivityNotFoundException:
No Activity found to handle Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW
dat=google.navigation:q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174 }

The two intents I'm using are-

1) For Map:
String uri = "geo:0,0?q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174";
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(uri));
startActivity(i);

2) For Navigator:
String uri = "google.navigation:q=MCNAMARA+TERMINAL+ROMULUS+MI+48174";
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(uri));
startActivity(i);
