    Screebl's cool, but it won't keep Maps on if your phone is flat, for instance.

    This might the easier, more foolproof solution for you: KeepScreen (now free) - Android app on AppBrain

    From the description: KeepScreen block screen timeout when predefined applications are active.

    Save your battery with short timeout but have great user experience with preselected "no timeout" apps. Usefull for reading mail, browsing, or guide with Google maps.


    So yeah, pretty much exactly what you want.

    If you're connected to a charger, Settings->Applications->Stay Awake will do the trick. There are apps as well.
