How long should an XXL 540S last on a full charge?

Just bought a brand new battery. Fully charged (in the house - not moving) the thing only last 90 minutes.

This seems rather short. Any ideas?

    Probably within the ballpark. That said, the device is meant to operate with the accompanying car charger when in the auto.

    Thx for the prompt reply DHN...I understand the design of always charging in the car. Having said that I'm a little shocked to see it last for such a short time. It wasn't moving, so the only
    discharge was keeping itself on the satellite track.

    I would like to use it on my bicycle, however being limited to a 90 minute ride wouldn't be fun.
    (It probably wouldn't last that long since the screen would be constantly moving)...

    There are USB battery packs that you can use with the device. Check on Amazon or similar. Just make sure the storage capacity is sufficient.
