Screen Auto-Dims in Landscape while driving
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:59:03 AM »
I have a new Nexus 5. This morning I noticed that when I'm driving and playing music from the Nexus to my car, anytime I turn the phone to landscape, the screen auto-dims to where I can't see it. Since I also use this for GPS at times and use a phone cradle that holds the phone in landscape orientation so it doesn't block my view, this is a bit of a problem. Is there a way to fix it? I did verify that it doesn't happen when at my desk, so it appears to be a car-only issue

I first noticed the problem when listening to an audio book from Audible, so I changed to listening to music and the issue was still there.

Any thoughts or suggestions? If I can resolve this without rooting or additional apps, that would be preferable.

Thanks.

Have you tried switching auto brightness off?

Here is a shot in the dark. Since it only happens in your car are you wearing sunglasses when it happens? Polarized lenses can do that to screens. If you are wearing sunglasses turn your head 90 degrees and see if the screen comes back on.

Funny I noticed this with my sunglasses, be nice if it was as simple as this.
