Post by gracmon » January 10th, 2010, 3:25 am

Go to Settings -> General -> Auto Lock and turn it to off before you go on trips where you need your GPS. Or if you prefer you can leave it this way always.

This essentially gives your iPhone the same behavior as a laptop computer. It waits for you to tell it to switch off the display and "lock" the touch screen.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

Just remember to turn that off if you don't need it and you don't think you can be mindful of it If it stays on it'll just drain your battery in like an hour.
