    I was hoping someone could help me as I'm using Google Maps to keep an eye on live traffic and have the screen timing out. Annoying when I have security on the phone and have to keep putting my pattern in while driving. Any options besides removing security or extending the time? :D

    Also, can someone give a definite answer whether or not WIFI drains the batter faster? Should I be using WIFI at home as opposed to 3G for optimal battery life?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know that navigation on the phone wont shut the screen off. And you can add a live traffic layer to that. Not sure if this will do what you want but you can try.

    I think it depends on how much data you plan on using at home. But i don't know if there is a definite answer yet.

    I actually just found a solution - an app called SCREEBL.

    It prevents the screen from timing out depending on the angle you are holding it. Very cool and just what I needed.
