    Sorry if this has already been answered - but how can I keep the screen from timing out if I have the Droid plugged into a power source? I have it mounted to my motorcycle and am using the cig lighter to power the Droid and want to use it as a GPS for driving instructions, etc. and it times out and goes to sleep after 30 Min. I have it mounted in a waterproof case and I can not easily wake it up. Surely there is a way to keep it from powering down if I have it attached to a power source?

    Thanks for you help!!

    There's probably an easier way, but you can always get screebl pro and set it up to where it'll keep your screen on while mounted to your bike.

    I could have sworn that if you are using the Navigation that it will not go to sleep. Are you just using Map with GPS turned on? If so then I would also recommend Screebl app. Would work like a charm for you.
