    Is there a way to get total distance to destination on the Google GPS? It displays total time to destination and distance to next turn, but not total distance to destination.

    As far as I know there is no way to toggle that on the main screen

    You can see whats left by clicking
    Menu - Route Info or press the Green Dot then "change route"

  3. That is not a Google GPS question. There is no such thing as 'Google GPS'. You probably mean this as a question about the Google Navigation app. It is a navigation app question.

    There are Nice GPS available .some are Android based. I guess you mean that? You might find some GPS which give you all the data numbers you want on earth.

    All for $469.99, Google Nav is free

    Blizzard: don't know what provider you have but Sprint NAV toggles what yor looking for. That said I like Google NAV better. Keep in mind Google NAV is still in Beta so if I were you I'd suggest that option it's a good one

    Google NAV (Beta)

    I played with Google Nav yesterday. I was surprised it was working as well as it did, however, it doesn't track, I had to manually move the screen, that wasn't convenient when traveling 70 mph.

    I wish Garmin would just port to Android. I'd pay good money for it.

    The distinction is important whether you get it or not. The GPS receiver and your GPS app are entirely separate entities. You'll have better luck with discussions if you don't blow off others trying to inform you. Google has nothing to do with your GPS receiver. They have everything to do with Google Maps/Nav.

    We can infer from context that "Google GPS" means Google Maps/Nav but even Google makes far more than just one GPS-enabled app. Being clear on what you mean benefits you.

    Google Nav does automatically. You're referring to Google Maps. If you want Maps to pan with your movements you need to hit the button at the top right (to the right of the Layers button):
