Lost Settings

Same thing happened here. Used the other key and didn't know about this "Feature". They should prompt you when you get in the car. Is there a way to pull up the settings? I saw some postings...

Use Waze instead

I use my car Navi for macro view only now. Waze gives live traffic much more accurately in populous areas as well as police and accident sightings. THey should just make it so the screen displays...
