Sprint Navigation with Device Lock on HTC Touch Pro

One of my customers has a new HTC Touch Pro and uses the Sprint Navigation feature heavily. The organization he belongs to requires a device password and a 5 minute timeout to protect sensitive data on the phone. The problem is that Sprint Navigation stops working when the device has been idle long enough to lock.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a solution to this problem, such as a setting in the application that will keep the device awake so it does not lock. We've searched the documentation and couldn't find anything. Alternately, is there other GPS software that does have this feature (e.g. will either keep the device awake, or operate at least audibly when the device is locked)?

Microsoft Voice Command seems to have the ability to bypass the lock and still operate, so I can't see why it wouldn't be possible for GPS applications.
