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.
