I cant figure out how to change the setting in google maps to keep it awake all the time when it is plugged in. Makes it very annoying to use in the vehicle when the screen keeps going to sleep ? Is there a setting just for google maps ? Funny thing is in settings I don't even see google maps

Should be a bit more specific. I am wondering if there is a way other then disabling auto lock. Thought that maps would have a bypass feature

^^^ I like the Mapquest app too. I've tended to use it in addition to rather than instead of Maps, but definitely have found it useful. It also makes my daughter laugh like crazy when 'The Lady in the iPad' tells us where to turn.

On the original question, there is not a way to set individual apps to prevent sleep mode.
