I never pay attention to the route indication text while navigating, the map shows it all. It would be a nice space saver to optionally get rid of the text. This could maybe be done by tapping the navigation bar to toggle the text on/off.
When navigating a route with multiple waypoints the navigation panel only shows the distance to the upcoming waypoint. I’m sometimes really (really!) missing the distance to the final destination! It would be nice if the distance to both the upcoming and the final destination is displayed.
