Auto dimming on iPhone 5

Time:November 30
How to turn off auto dimming? It is impairing driving with the GPS software while power is connected to iPhone.
Any ways around the dimming?
I have exactly the same issue, not good for driving using GPS driving! For the avoidance of doubt, the phone is not plugged in when driving but dims by itself; brightnesses gone down to 0 itself whether auto-brightness is on or off; even after driving when not on Google GPS I found the phone to be dimming...
This problem seems to only occur only when using Google GPS. This problem goes away when using GPS function via Contacts i.e when the address fields are populated selecting that takes you to maps, with the option to navigate or drive to...
Hope this helps - if anyone knows how to use the Apple Navigation without using Contacts already saved in the phone ie enter the postcode only without having to create the contact and address first please let me know!
