I've been trying turning on multitasking so that I can run tomtom and say play music, but tomtom loses gps fix while the music is playing. The beta didn't do this, the other downside is battery life is severly reduced.

What multitasking?

All you can do is start the iPOD up playing music then start the navigation application - this does work but its far from ideal, a double (rapid) press of the round button on the phone will bring up the iPOD controls to change track etc - thats about as far as you can currently push multitasking on the iPhone.

As for running the battery down, you should use a car charger cable at all times otherwise when you get to the destination you will find your phone flat and unable to perform its primary function - acting as a phone! - Mike

I mean using a app like backgrounder

I still waiting for a cradle that lets me use it landscape, and optionally my juice pack case.
