Very useful for destinations where there are multiple ways to go, as often the human knows the more common-sense route than the computer does. Living in the NYC area, I rely on this screen a lot because the traffic system will re-route me and I can tap one button to see if it's sending me through the Bronx or up the coast of Manhattan to get to the George Washington Bridge.

I find that most navs (dedicated and apps) send me to the Cross Bronx when I am coming from CT heading south. Almost always a bad idea, and I've often wished I could see both the map and a turn by turn list.
