    That's pretty useless - I just want to be able to see the clock and other information without having to put a route in.

    The 2D map provides an overview of traffic conditions, which you can use to determine if there are any issues.

    As for the route bar not showing if there's not a route put in - why would it? It doesn't know the route you're taking as you've not put it in.

    It's like expecting a shop assistant to tell you much your bill is, without telling them what you want to buy.

    I don’t get why you have an issue putting a route in when you know where you’re going. I do it all the time, so that I can see the live traffic info and take a detour if necessary.
