iPhone 12 Pro gets really hot when running ABRP?

Recommended Posts

I just did a trip in my e-tron using ABRP, and I was really impressed with how well the vehicle battery drain was forecasted, despite the fact there's no data connection available for the e-tron. We corrected the battery % once on the first leg, and then manually entered the % after each charge, and the rest of the time it stayed within 1% for an entire leg.

Unfortunately, the app kills the battery, and makes my iPhone extremely warm. I reinstalled the app, and it seems to be exactly the same. All it takes is a few minutes in APRP (planning a trip or whatever), for the phone to get really warm. Does this happen to anyone else?

We just did a 16 hour trips and within the first hour, iOS ABRP got so hot the phone actually thermally shutdown. 
 

I found that we had to remove the case. Also FYI with “low power” USB it definitely drains the battery. Good thing we have an Pro Max!

Could you please compare it to other navigation apps on such a drive and let us know the result? It's a mix of using GPS, calculating stuff and rendering graphics that makes the phone get warm. My assumption is that it also heats up nicely on other navigation apps. Especially in sunny weather conditions. Try to put the phone so its hidden from the sun. Even if it's nice and comfy due to air conditioning, the phone will get hot if the sun shines on it.

Sam here on a iphone 10max. The app is also very slow. Work fine last year when I used it first. I switched from apple maps to abrp maps and that seemed to solve it.

Thanks for that hint, we will also be  looking into this soon.
