    It’s great that you’ve now got clear route on the first menu screen when in navigation mode. However, the confirmation to, “Clear Your Destination?” [Yes/No] still bugs me.

    99% of the time it’s what I wanted to do so an extra button press isn’t worth it. I’d rather just reset a route for the 1% of times I hit yes accidentally (in fact I don’t think this has even ever happened for me).

    Could you maybe include an *option* in a settings menu to turn off this confirmation please? Then those who like it can leave it on as default but those like me who find it irritating would at least have the option to disable it.

    Also, when no route is set, I am very often very likely to shut down the app (not minimise but shut down) as I am nearing home for example. Instead of having to press 2 buttons to get to a (tiny!) shut down button, why not just have a large (semi) transparent shut down button on the main map view when no destination is set? This way we can quickly and easily get out of the app (and therefore turn off gps to save battery) well before home for example. Just exiting the app is hassle at the moment… (I know I can just press the ‘home’ button anytime but it then runs in background and keeps the set route, neither of which I want).

    /suggestions rant over/ :)

    Good stuff overall though – really like that you keep refining the software!
