    Is there a way to have the screen automatically switch to full-brightness when the Evo is plugged in?

    A reason for this would be for car navigation.

    Yes. I use Locale which is $10, but Im sure there is a free way to do it too.

    I would like this as well. When I use the navigator app it does stay at full brightness while plugged in to the charger in the car. However, even with "screen never sleeps while charging" selected in the options, all other apps like music and BeyondPod allow the screen to dim dramatically to the point that it is not veiwable in daylight. It would be nice to force the screen to stay on bright at all times while charging.

    That allows the screen to dim but not go out. It doesn't stay at full brightness.

    When the Nav app runs the screen will stay on regardless.

    I found something that seems to work. I have not had a chance to try it on the charger yet. Search for "Toggle screen timeout" in the Marketplace. All it does is toggle screen timeout on and off with one button. One that did this automatically when plugged in would be nice but this works for now.

    Another one I found is KeepScreen. It let's you set timeout rules per application but it seems to have no options regarding charging which makes it useless for me.

    I know this might be a 'grave dig' but Tasker does the job nicely. It's a bit fiddly to start but it works!

    It's $6 but there's a trial that appears to be free in the description of the app in the market.
