At least outside of big cities, perhaps what he means is that the map should show as much detail as possible. He can look at map and decide where he wants to navagate to. You really don't need some computer dishing out real time instructions just to follow a map to a desired location. With CN in my Nuvi, all the towns go away as soon as I zoom out at all but all the highway numbers stay like I really care what the number of the road I am on is. I have to use R&R on my small screen 76 to see actual towns where I want to go.
