Hi BigRed61. You would get more attention for your issue is you start a new thread...instead of adding to this one. This one's not really an "i've got a problem" kind of thread. The people who could best help you might not see your plea for help.
I'm no expert at all, but it sounds like you have some apps running constantly. If you're not using GPS, turn it off, too. Actually, turn off anything you're not using.
If that doesn't work, I'd return it for an exchange. The battery, or the unit could be defective.
Oh....and I don't know about moving the apps and other stuff. You need an expert for that.
