Recently, I upgraded my firmware using the Nav software update and Starlink has been mysterious appearing every time I connect my iPhone XS Max. Whether this is due to the firmware update, or to an update to the Starlink app on the phone I'm not sure.

I normally tap around to go immediately into CarPlay, but I've been noticing heavier battery use on my phone than normal.

I went into the Battery settings on my phone, and noticed that the Starlink app was using 45% of my battery (over 21 hours at last check).

I've since turned off background app refresh on the Starlink app, but was wondering if anyone has seen similar high battery usage on their smartphones.

Confirmed, and I don’t have the frills that would warrant that level of battery usage. Ios settings on initial app install wanted location settings to be ‘always on’. Changed them to ‘only when using’ and there has been a significant reduction in battery usage.
