Incredible overheats and shuts down using GPS.

by marchhare    Feb 15, 2011, 4:07 PM

My phone overheats and gets in a shutdown reboot loop when using GPS. It did this while plugged into car charger. I concluded it was overcharging. Today I tried using GPS without charger. There was direct sun hitting the screen (I'm in Florida). It soon shut down and got in the Terrible Loop. I've read a lot about this online and there are many different experiences and views. The phone does not do this inside the house with a wall charger.
Does anyone know if Verizon has a definitive answer for this. I've read of other customers with this problem getting replacement phones that do the same thing.
I checked on getting a Garvin navigation system and read they also can overheat and shutdown.
Any info and advice are appreciated.
I apologize if this has been covered before.
Thanks to all.
