    I just got Sony Ericcson HBH-DS970 stereo bluetooth headset, and the beta demo version of Softick Audio Gateway 1.08. I set them up sucessfully with my Verizon 700p, then tried using it to listen to podcasts on my morning commute. Here's the situation:
    • Starting Treo battery level 80-90%
    • Phone was OFF throughout
    • Using Pocket Tunes 4 Pro half the time, then Audible Player
    • After about 1 hour of listening my Treo battery was down to about 20%


    I haven't used the Bluetooth with the Treo prior to this. Is this level of battery consumption normal? Is it related to SAG? (I'm using the stock Palm battery, BTW) I have traditionally been doing the commute listening the same way, only with wired headphones, and have never experienced battery consumption anywhere near this.

    Thanks

    I dont know if that degree of drain is normal, but A2DP uses a massive amount of processor power to re-encode your mp3's to the lossy codec used by the headphones, and of course streaming a massive amount of data via bluetooth also uses a lot of battery power (vs just being idle).

    Hey Dave,

    Can you post some performance feedback in the bluetooth section using your HBH-DS970, the 700p, and SAG.1.08 ? Thanks.
