    Has anyone used the new maps for navigation? My phone got extremely hot, talking hard to hold hot in the back top part. I used it for around 10 minutes before the app crashed, even though it was working fine before.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Was the phone in the sun?

    All kidding aside I haven't had any problems. I used my phone from center city Philadelphia to my parents house in Levittown just to see how it worked. That is about a 50 minute ride and i had no heat issues. I'll keep an eye out.

    Nope, I was in the car. Though it was on a charger which could have exacerbated the heat issue.

    Mine works fine without heating up, although I haven't tested Maps to the extent of driving around with it.

    Mine heats up as well. Maps is very sensitive, she doesn't like to be opened and used all the time.

    Yep, I found that yesterday, inside, at night, in a cool basement. It gets REALLY hot. Hotter than I've ever had it with say infinity blade running
