So this is not specific to the Leaf, but really about a change in Google Maps display/function that effects all EV drivers that use it. I drive a 2017 Leaf w/o a navigation system and I travel for work and often to new locations. So I use Google Maps on my phone. I find Waze too busy and cumbersome but maybe I need to use it more.
On a separate issue, I have always thought that it would be a boon to EV drivers if there was an option for "shortest route."
But several weeks ago I saw that Google Maps no longer continuously displays the mileage to the destination. It shows mileage to the next turn and shows mileage to destination every time you travel 1 more mile, but it only displays for a few seconds. That sucks as I am always gauging where my next charge will have to be. Also, if I come to an intersection with an alternate route, it doesn't display the mileage.
Is there a way to contact them and ask them to go back to the old display?
