So I'm not sure if shorting the data pins was necessary but definitely a combo of that and HTC cable no allows me to increase charge while navigating with Copilot and listening to music through Spotify(Streaming and Offline) and also I have a nice usb charger that permanently sits in my 12V socket.

Happy Days
