Navigation when "walking" on the highway at 130 km/h

When visiting a city, the walk-option is really useful. It's bad that you have to dive into the menu to set this. Most of the time I forgot I set this. Next day I use the app in the car, and suddenly I see that the ETA goes up to 20 hours for a normal 1 hour trip. Driving on the highway at 130 km/h I get the advice to turn (!!!) and take the on-ramp (another !!!).

When I'm moving with speeds higher than 20 km/u the app should suggest changing to driving instead of walking. A (optional) button on the navigation screen should fix this: a car-icon when driving, a person-icon when walking etc.

Furthermore the current solution is dangerous. We all know the stories of people turning right when it's impossible because the navigation said so. On the highway this could be really dangerous.
