Prevent your Screen from Timing Out While Using TomTom
Posted June 29, 2010 at 12:00 pm by egzthunder1
Have you ever used TomTom ono a Windows Mobile device? If so, then you are probably familiar with its inability on certain devices to keep the screen on (device’s power settings turning the screen off). To fix this dilemma, XDA member zapras has released a small script, which forces the device’s screen to stay on while TomTom is running. The app is very small and has been tested on the HTC Maple. It may be possible to make it work for other devices, so please post your feedback in the dev’s thread.
It’s a basic program which makes sure the display doesn’t timeout while TomTom is running.
I have only tested it on my HTC Maple and it works fine. The default path to TomTom is \Storage Card\Program Files\Navigator\TomTom Navigator.exe
It comes with two programs, one is for launching TomTom and the other one is to change the default path. I suggest copying the files into your TomTom folder, but it doesn’t matter. Remember to create a shortcut to the launcher and add it to your startmenu for easy access.
It could work on the HTC Excalibur but I haven’t tested yet, so If someone could test and reply to this thread, that would be great.
