    Keeping screen on in "Car Home" mode

    Hey all!
    Maybe I didn't look hard enough, but I can't imagine someone else hasn't had this question pop into their heads already here on the forum:

    Is there a way to automatically have the screen "always on" when it's docked in the dash-mount? I like how the phone automatically goes into "Car Home" mode when you place it in the dock, but it'd be nice it the screen wouldn't time out. I guess the easiest work-around is to plug the car charger into the phone since I've got the setting checked to where the screen stays on while charging, but I don't always want to have to fumble around with the cord. Only reason I ask is because sometimes if I'm navigating through an unfamiliar area, I like to be able to just leave the Maps app open and glance over at the screen to see what streets are around. Any advice would help.

    Thanks!

    Get KeepScreen from the market. It's free and will keep the screen on for any app you tell it to. That's what I use and it works fairly well. Make sure you exclude it from your task killer .

    Just set the phone to Settings>Applications>Development>Stay Awake then check to on. Then plug in your car charger. Whenever the phone charges the display will stay on until you hit the power button/screen off.
