    Hi all,

    So I mount my note 2 in a dashboard holder while in my car. I have been trying to find a way to keep the screen "always" on or at least always on while it is plugged in. I want to use the navigation and other useful things that it can do. Does anyone know or have a way to remedy this. Thank you

    -Mike

    For some strange reason it will not allow me to check this box, no matter what I do. Any suggestions?

    I'll suggest a paid app, but I find it great for driving. Check out CarHome Ultra in the play store. It has settings to stay awake while the app is on. IMO the best car app out there.
