A collegue of mine had an Nokia N8 with an outdoor navigation software which turned on the display whenever a new waypoint came near.

Very nice feature!!!

Definitely. And I think Android has all the possibilities to enable this feature. For instance, I use GTasks as ToDo-App. It's notifications are placed infront of the lock screen and switch on the display. That's the behaviour I would like Locus to do.

hmm you won't believe me, but I already spend on searching for a way how to programmatically turn on a screen, more then few hours and without success. So in case of Locus, it's not a problem of lazyness etc. but for me a problem if inability to do it... for now :)

Hi Menion,
sorry when it sounded like I wouldn't believe you this. I know how many features you developed. Maybe you can ask the guys from GTasks for a hint how they managed it?

nono, it do not sound like this, it was just a "phrase" :)

if GTask turn on screen only if dialog with some notification appear, in this way I was also able to do it in Locus. But problem was dialog that remain on screen and all this looks quite weird in the end. I'll give it time, and I'm sure, any solution will occur

That sounds OK. If you need anyone for testing, just ask.
