I am considering picking up the vehicle dock, but I had a few questions I was hoping someone could answer before I did. I checked around online and wasn't able to get anything useful.
1. I know that when the vehicle mount has the built-in magnet that activated the "Car Home" mode. Does this lock the phone into that mode, or does it still retain full functionality and you just have to hit the "Home" button or something...?
2. When I use the phone in the car right now for Nav, I notice that the screen will remain on until I exit Navigation. It seems as if the Navigation app has a way of over riding the power settings that tell the screen to power off after a minute. However, when using Google Maps, not Navigation, to just follow my progress on the map, rather than initiating a navigation, the screen still powers off after a minute, which is very inconvenient when driving. Does the vehicle mount, by any chance, disable the power settings and force the screen to remain on at all time while in the mount (while plugged in obviously)? If not, does anyone know of a way around this so that the screen stays on and I don't have to wake the phone up every 60 seconds?
Any help with either of these would be greatly appreciated. Thank in advance.
