When navigating, offer a map display mode that shows the current location and the destination. As you move closer to the destination the map would automatically zoom in to show more detail yet keep both current location and destination on the map.
I do this manually. It’s useful for reviewing the live traffic situation and having an intuitive feel for avoiding congestion. Navigation is a good tool but no algorithm beats the human brain for looking at the big picture.
Implemented in 6.2 and further refined in 8.0.
