Distance to upcoming road

The Nav V shows the next cross road coming up, but doesn't show its distance. I don't see a way to have this information displayed. Is there a way to show this information?

Re: Distance to upcoming road

Unless you are following a route you will not see this. So, are you saying that you are following a programmed route, or following the Nav V directions and it does not show this? Again, it will only show the distance to your next programmed turn, it will not show distance to any other intersections.

Re: Distance to upcoming road

Thanks Mike. I am not following a route, just looking at the map as I ride and see the name of an upcoming road, but not the distance. It seems that I had a Garmin years ago that would show the distance, but it's long gone.

Appreciate your help.

I believe the only time you will see a distance or time displayed is during a route. The distance or time is displayed differently for each theme and is customizable. Some themes display three or four parameters for the next turn and some only display one, but that one parameter is customizable.
