    Hi,
    Love my new Wildfire - BUT when I'm using Google Maps Navigation it would be handy to keep the screen turned on without having to go through Settings > Sound and Display > Screen Timeout each time.
    Have been looking for an app that would toggle the screen timeout - and they do exist - but they all seem to be unavailable for the Wildfire (the dreaded 'not found' screen!):mad:
    Anyway, just wondering if any of you had solved this problem. I thought I had found the perfect app - Screen On - which keeps screen on for apps specified by you - but Google Navigation isn't listed as an option!
    Any help would be much appreciated....;)
    Thanks

    My screen stays on whilst using navigation, it does not turn off, the only problem I have is when I rotate the phone during navigation it goes into a text menu.

    I should add mine is as new, no apps etc added to the Wildfire

    Thanks Andrew - i have added quite a few apps - but don't know why this would affect the screen timeout in navigation. Very strange :eek: I wonder if anyone else can throw any light on this? :thinking:

    Hi again,
    Managed to find KeepScreen yesterday - which is just what I was after - working brilliantly!
    Thanks
