Idea: HOLD Button/Switch (Key Lock and Touch Screen Off)
View all ideas for this Category

Having this button/control/switch has made my experience with my A696 GPS/PDA very much improved because it means I can use the device in my pocket without wasting battery life or worrying about accidental button/touch screen hits. It also means that I can make the screen turn off to save power whenever I want to at the touch of one control. If I'm watching a movie but I only want to hear the sound, just hit the key - have the GPS software make a track log of my trip while walking/biking with the device in my pocket - just hit the button/toggle the switch. And when I am ready to use the device as normal again, just toggle the switch again and go .

As well I can use Bluetooth devices to control it without risk of accidentally hitting a button or the touch screen.  

I never realized how useful this would be before getting the device - but having it now I'd hate to go back to going without - it's just too darned useful . An excellent idea for any Touch Screen device.
