It's been like that as long as I can remember. Not talking about the menu button here, which is what you call the 'three bars'. When you're navigating, using the Nuvi Dashboard, touch the top of the screen and see for yourself. Just got out my Montana to remind myself how the Nuvi Dashboard works and there's a feature there I hadn't noticed before: at the top right of the screen, while navigating, is the name of the next road, and the left is the distance and an arrow telling you which way the turn is. Each of those elements, the left and right side, are clickable. The right side is a text list of distances and road names; the left is a countdown, time and distance, to the next step, with a large arrow indicating the direction of the turn. These screens are only on for about 5 seconds, then the gps goes back to the Nuvi dashboard.
