In short, I don't like split screen all the time. I prefer the larger map. However, I do like having the "arrow mode" flash up before I'm about to make a turn. With split screen off it seems like the only indication to turn is audible.

So, my question is, is there way to have split screen come on ONLY when the next turn is approaching?

As as aside, in the Mercedes I had, the 'next turn information' sits quite nicely in the instrument cluster which would be fantastic

You can set "Exit ramp View" mode. When that is enabled, you can be in full screen mode and then when an exit ramp is coming up, it will display the ramp picture in the split view and then disappear automatically when you are through it.

It will not do this for normal turns though.

Also, if you turn off nav instructions in the HUD, you will get turn information in the instrument cluster.
