My FR was getting *very *hot while trying to get a gps fix and also pretty
warm just "on" in my shirt pocket.
While scanning for gps it got hot enough that I put it right back down when
I picked it up. I'd left if flat on a table. I think the GSM and Bluetooth
were on as well as the GPS. I didn't have access to anything to measure the
temperature but it was hot enough I was concerned I'd shortened the life of
The shirt pocket warmth was just warm. Warmer than room temperature. Wasn't
charging, just waiting for calls.
It hasn't happened again lately. I don't know if the opkg upgrade fixed
