Does it charge when you are not using NAV? Do you think it could be the cable? Try a different one and see what happens. I would also maybe suggest pulling the battery out for a few secs and putting it back in and see if it makes any difference.

That's a possibility.. if the charger is generic/off-brand it may not be supplying enough voltage. I've used my nav in the car with a Verizon-bought rapid charger and it works just fine.

That would be my first thought...it might charge without anything running but using the GPS can drain a battery quickly!

Try a new cable, some of these cheap cables dont have the same voltage as the ones that come with the phone/through Verizon. I still always buy the no name brands and have always had good luck...I beleive the one in my car is going to 4 years old now and I got it for $6 from amazon
