Q: I don't drive my truck much in the summertime. My battery died. Any ideas? on 2009 Dodge Ram 1500

My GPS was plugged into the power plug which turns off when you turn off the car. When I unpluged it, it seems to be holding up. Any Ideas??

The GPS unit must be drawing some power even when it is off. Most modern vehicles will always have a very slight draw on the battery even when everything is "off". The same is probably true of you GPS unit. when you add that on top of the normal draw it could be causing your problem.
