I have been using Here Maps itineraries to drive, and there is an issue with the sleep mode.

When I start navigation, the smartphone continues to automatically go to sleep every 5 minutes. I tried deactivating automatic lock, but to no effect.This means that the driver has to unlock the phone every five minutes to continue to get driving directions. Sound continues to work after the screen went to sleep mode.

Noticed that Android Apps in general can not prevent sleep mode.

Evident in when playing video in android apps.

This is a "feature" of SailFish, if you touch the screen during the fadeout, the delay before the next fade out will double every time, until some max timeout.

The only way to stop the screen from blanking is to check the setting "Keep display on while charging", in the display settings, and have the phone charging.

Ok. I'll use that turnaround in the future, but when navigation is activated on a GPS, the sleep mode should be adjusted automatically like with any other smartphone.

There is a workaround: you can add never sleep to the display setting as described here and select it before using Here...

Didn't think of that. Thanks :-) Still think that Jolla should implement something letting Android apps.deactivating sleep mode in some circumstances because it's a very standard feature of Android / iOS
