    Hello Copilot team,

    i would like to make several comments / suggestions for the next update:

    selection of Directions view:
    all turn points
    next turn point
    map view
    by just clicking the arrows. Now to get back to the map view is cumbersome (somewhere in the menues)
    I still would like to have the possibility to have all turn points and the map (divided screen) like in v8 on my android smartphone (desire) in landscape mode.
    Why did you take it away?

    possibility to select the desired ETA(s) by clicking on a button or fix it via the menu
    next waypoint
    next destination
    final destination

    important: current position:
    you took away the display possibility of the current position (current road). At highways this is no problem (higway signs in map) but in cities I definitely want to have the current road displayed. Suggestion: bar in the upper part of the screen, or smaller font and integration in the lower part. Maybe optional display (on/off).

    In General I would like to have more setting possibilities of the newly designed info bar, maybe by using the other corners of the screen as well.

    Many thanks
    best regards

    Great Update! Keep up the good work. Would still like to see the option of just having the map view show speed, direction, and street name without having to select a destination. Sometimes you just want the GPS to be in a “Follow Me” mode.

    Also still don’t ever see speed limit’s on any roads even though in the settings it’s turned on. Idea’s?

      Hi Dan,

      Thank you very much for the great feedback! Certain speed-limit information may not be coming up on certain routes because we don’t have the information yet, however we are always looking to update them. I will make sure to relay your suggestions to the rest of my team.

      Thank you.
