    Constant backlight when using GPS

    Advertisement



    I just ordered a mounting bracket from www.proclipusa.com, and a car power adapter from another site, so that I can use the pearl as a GPS in my car.

    My question is: How do you set the Pearl to maintain a constant backlight when plugged in. I currently charge my phone with the AC adapter in my house, and the backlight doesn't stay on. The settings only allow for you to maintain the backlight for 2 minutes. I really dont see how you can use the pearl as a GPS when the screen turns off after a certain period of time.

    Thanks!

    Thank you both! I haven't set anything up yet, I'm about to order a GPS receiver, I just wanted to make sure it's possible before I waste my money. Thanks again.

    With Telenav I have a setting to keep the backlight on for 100% of the time, guess that is something for the pearl users to look forward to.
