Default Front screen?

Is there any way to keep the screen on all the time? Like for using the GPS??

I believe there are some 3rd parties to do this.

Out of curiosity, why do you want to murder your battery like that?

Certain GPS Software for BlackBerry is coded to keep the screen on while in use. I know VZ Navigator does. I haven't played around with many of the other free ones.

That might be your best bet. Find a program that suits your needs, including leaving the screen on.

I would echo the previous post, if you don't have the Berry plugged in a do this, you'll probably only get a couple hours of use.

It would be plugged into a car charger of course

You can download BBLight from here: BlackBerryTools OTA
There's a bunch of stuff there, and you should delete BBWeather that you get in that package. It's an old version and won't work. There's a newer version of BBWeather available here, in OTA form: http://www.tateu.net/software/dl.php?f=BBWeather

If you want the .zip file for just BBLight: Browse BlackBerryTools Files on SourceForge.net

If you go to that link he sent you from your phone you can do it right from there. Or download the zip and use the Destop Manager.
