Cell phone automatic screen lockout pro and con

I'm posting this with hope this feature will be given serious thought by cell phone manufacturers who participate in this forum. The automatic screen lockout timer is a blessing and curse. It gives us peace of mind about security in case our phone is lost or stolen but it's a pain (and even adds to the danger of cell phone use while driving) when you need to use you need to look at your cell phone often such as using a map and/or GPS features on the phone. What is needed is the ability to temporarily suspend the cell phone screen lockout timer for a set period of time that is selectable. Maybe a few selections such as 10, 30 and 60 minutes would be good. This has been bugging me for a while in cell phones and I thought maybe by now some cell phone manufacturers would have this implemented. Maybe some have and I'd like to know who they are if so. It's not implemented in my LG Optimus smart phone I purchased last fall at least. Thanks.
