Stop Timeout On Maps (turn by turn) Z10

Hello

 

I ride a motorbike and really need a sat nav to help me get to places on a rare occasion. Meant to be riding into central london tomorrow and any route planners are way too confusing and I have zero map skills.

I used the turn by turn with earphones in on my Z10 which worked great.... for the first 5 minutes. Then the screen auto-locks - I then have to stop and press the screen in order to still get the turn by turns which is not ideal.

Any way of stopping this at all? - either by using a different sat nav app or setting something on the Maps?

Tried some never lock app but didnt work!

Please help!!!!

Please use plain text.

Re: Stop Timeout On Maps (turn by turn) Z10

I'm not sure. I am about to drive somewhere in the hour, and will test the screen timeout on mine.

 

I've used the Maps many times already, but i just don't recall about the screen timeout.

OK thanks.

 

Its just if I am out and around riding its not ideal for me that the screen locks every 5 minutes so stops the drections from being said!

 

Thanks again

Re: Stop Timeout On Maps (turn by turn) Z10

Yep, confirmed, with the others, it does not allow the screen to timeout.

 

Are you by any chance putting the device in a holster or any case withe the sleeper magnet in it?

 

How do you use this exactly while on your motorbike? Mounted somehow, in your hand or what?
