When I use Google Maps for my Samsung Galaxy S, after a while the display goes dark and the GPS disconnects. Is there a way to disable the display countdown during the usage of Google Maps?


I use the Tasker application to change the screen timeout and brightness (as well as the GPS) when I use Maps or Navigation. I turn on GPS and disable timeout when starting Maps/Navigation and turn them off on exiting. Tasker allows you to specify certain tasks that are activated when opening/closing and application. It has several other features and uses, but I find it works well for the problem you are having.
