Default Possible to turn off "safety" feature on Nav system?

I'm new to this forum but have really be enjoying it so far and have learned a lot!

I apologize if this is in the manual and I just couldn't find it, but I'm wondering if there is a way to turn off the safety option that disables many of the navigation features while driving the car. The Pilot that I owned before did not have this restriction, and it has been very frustrating to not be able to set a location while driving. I understand the reason behind it, but this restriction even prevents my wife who is sitting in the passenger seat from making use of many of the features.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Steve

There's no software code or option that anyone has been able to find.

A guy on the Nissan Enthusiasts forum installed a switch in his dash wired into the nav system. It tells the nav computer that the vehicle has stopped moving. It also causes a few issues with tracking your current position.
