    I'm by FAR not what you'd call a techie, and I'm totally new to the 'smart phone".

    I just bought a Motorola Droid. I'm still trying to figure this thing out.

    The one thing I'm kind of not liking is...
    With my old LG Dare, I used VZ Navigator for my GPS. That phone was a touch screen, but when I would use the GPS to find where I was going, I could lock the screen, and it would stay lit, and the program would continue to run. But if I bumped the screen with my finger, I wouldn't be thrown out of the program, or into another one.

    I'm finding that with my new Droid (which uses Google maps) that when I'm using the GPS on that, I will occasionally bump the screen, and then I have to try to navigate my way back to the GPS.

    So if anyone knows of an app that allows me to keep my screen fully lit and the program working, BUT still locks the screen, could you please let me know?

    Thanks!
