    I was using Google Navigation this morning to direct me to somewhere and the screen kept timing out and locking. This was happening every 10 minutes or so.

    Surley this is not meant to happen on a NAVIGATION application where you would expect the screen to stay active all the time! how can i prevent this from happening?

    Use an app to prevent the screen timeout. Screebl seems to be popular. Tasker could also handle this and I'm sure there are many other options out there.

    Alternately, try Settings->Applications->Development->Stay Awake.

    Not all nav apps keep the screen on all the time.

    Seems daft they dont have the screen on all of the time.

    Can you suggest an app for stopping the screen from locking when a certain app is running?
