How to keep screen on while using Sprint Navigation?

I have the problem where the BB screen goes black after several seconds without use. How do I stop this from happening when I am using Sprint Navigation? I've looked in Options/Adv. Options to no avail. Please advise.

Hi, you're not looking at the right place. It's here:
Options >> Screen/Keyboard >> Backlight timeout

That copy is old (1.82), go to BlackBerryForums for the latest version (1.85) of BBLight. One of the BBF members updated BBlight earlier this year.

Re: How to keep screen on while using Sprint Navigation?

On my 8330, in Sprint Navigation, if I go to 'Tools/Extras', 'Preferences', 'Backlight' -- I have options for 'Backlight On', 'Backlight Off', or 'On at Turns' -- I keep it on 'Backlight On', and it stays lit the whole time.
