Even when plugged in. the 45 minutes was slowly discharging your phone. Add in the 20 minutes of full-on screen/satlink after that, and I think orange would be expected.

MAH - yes I am using the cable that came with the dock.

Alpha - so you are saying even though it's in dock with the power cord hooked up, when you arrive at your destination you should expect your phone to die? I would think since it was being "charged" while using GPS it shouldnt slowly drain your batter... at least that's what I would hope.
The combination of the screen full-on, and GPS powered up, will exhaust your cell faster than it can recover from being connected and charging with your auto dc charger. Even worse if you're using a third-party auto charger that may only put out 500ma.
