Have you tried the suggestion that @AndrewL posted above? Setting a trusted place will keep your phone unlocked, but the screen may still turn off.

 

We can, however, stop this from happening. For this, we need to enable Developer Options. Head to Settings > About Phone > Software Information. Then tap on Build Number about 7 times nice and fast. Head to back to the Settings menu and you'll have Developer Options. (As a rule, we'd say don't mess with much in here, as it can affect your phone negatively).

 

But this once, we can go in there, scroll down the menu until you find option Stay Awake. Tap that, and your phone screen won't turn off. (As another disclaimer, this will drain your battery a bit more, so remember to lock your phone and turn your screen off when you don't need it).

@PaulIrl: Please can you confirm the model number of your A series phone, along with the current Android version, and I will look into this for you. In the meantime, please try going to Settings > Lock Screen > Smart Lock > Trusted Devices > Add Trusted Device > Choose your car stereo (if applicable).

Thanks that works  phone lives on charge cable so no worries over battery. Is it possible to set for only when one particular app is open. Thanks phone now stays on

Glad you managed to get that sorted, @PaulIrl.

Unfortunately, no way to set this for just the one app, but that is something we can certainly pass on as feedback!
