    I posted this on another thread but feel it is appropriate here in "tips and tricks...".

    The SYNC toggle on the power bar is same as ACCOUNTS/ADVANCED SETUP/ACCOUNTS AND SYNC. There is a slider switch beside the words "ACCOUNTS AND SYNC", Slider says "OFF/ON". This is the switch within the ACCOUNTS App that does the same thing as the power bar SYNC. Change it in either place and the other switch follows the change you made.

    Tried this and it didn't work- any other ideas??? Trying to use the navigation is very annoying when the screen keeps going off.

    You could try Tasker. It's a paid app, but it's well worth the money for its versatility. You could have it set the screen to no timeout when the Navigation app is open. I have it do that when the camera app is open.

    For those of you with battery problems, it could also be used to help with that. I made a battery saver profile that gets activated between certain hours if the screen is off and the orientaion is face down.

    I have so many Tasker profiles it isn't even funny.


    Edited to add:

    I just tested it & it appears to still be working on ICS. My screen timeout is set to 30 sec, but I just let it idle in camera mode for more than 1 minute and it didn't cut off.

    Found this solution in another thread...worked perfectly!!! Once I disabled VZ Navigaor, the dock worked just like it did before ICS.

    "One of the cool things about ICS is you can disable unwanted pre installed apps like VZW Navigator. From Manage Apps select VZ Navigator. If it gives you the option on Uninstall Updates, do it. Then you will have the option to Disable. Disable it. When you hit NAV on the dock menu it will default to Google Navigation."

    Once I disabled VZ Navigaor, hte dock worked just like it did before ICS.

    Excellent tips... many thanks to all of you!

    I received ICS on my RAZR yesterday morning and went out of my mind for the first hour or so. My A/C was out and I couldn't even figure out how to get to my (non-favorite) contacts from the Phone app. Called Verizon tech support with a list of issues and I think I'm about getting mostly settled in now, thanks to a few things they helped with and the tips that you all have posted here. They seemed a bit overwhelmed there as well, and apparently the "mock up" they got of ICS didn't always match what actually came out, so they were searching online forums for some of the answers. I can tell by one item they read me that they probably got the answer here on droidforums. I really like some aspects of ICS, especially finally being able to disable some built-in apps like VZNavigator. Also like some of the new widgets. Other stuff is kind of a bother to me and seems like change for the sake of change... especially when I have to go "deeper" to get to common items.

    My remaining question right now: I removed a couple of apps from my home page by dragging them up to the top of the page and dropping them onto "X Remove." My understanding is all that should do is remove it from the home page, not from the App area. I've had a couple of them disappear from the Apps area as well, though. I can see them listed when I go to "Manage Apps," but they're not in the Apps area for plain old launching. One example is "Voice Search." I thought I was just getting it out of the way while I figured out how I wanted to lay out my home pages, but now I can't find it to launch it. Yes, I'm looking at "All Apps." Any idea how to bring it back from the twilight zone?

    Try a replacement car home app. I like Car Home Ultra. It has an option to keep screen on. Disabling vz nav didn't change the screen timeout for me.

    This is what I do - I don't have the official car dock, just one of those generic claw types that can hold any phone, GPS, etc. I have a SmartAction set up that when I plug in both the headphones (car stereo) and the power it will turn WiFi off/GPS on, keep the display on, and launch my car app. I use Car Dashboard Pro. This set up works like a charm for me, before and after ICS. Good luck!

There is no music player anymore, so no big buttons to use to skip and pause while driving. Also, if you aren't on the main screen, the screen will time out! So I'm listening to music and the screen shuts off! What are they thinking? The only thing i could think to do was use smart Actions to change the screen timeout, but the longest is 10 minutes, so now i assume the main screen will timeout after 10 minutes if I'm say, listening to the radio in my car and not touching the screen to skip through songs. Not only that, but pressing the home button doesn't take me to the car dock home, it takes me to the regular home screen. How is this supposedto be driver friendly?
    I'm having the smae problem & thought the exact same thing. In fact, I did hit the shoulder a couple times trying to get the screen back to car dock home. I hope someone can find an answer for this. It's a serious flaw.

    BBC, for "bring backs"....Go into System Settings-Apps- Scroll Top Blue Bar to "ALL Apps" and at the very bottom of the list will be apps removed/disabled unless they were down loaded and then you just go into the PlayGround and re-install those.


    ( I think)
