Summary: A numeric field that shows the distance to the next POI while riding a route.
Details: I typically ride old familiar routes where, in the past before I tried routes and turn-by-turn prompts, I would try to remember to hit the lap button when starting a long segment. Because I know the length of each segment, it gave me a sense of exactly how far along I was on each bit. It's not critical information, but it helped to satisfy my inner data nerd.
The turn-by-turn distance to next turn is handy but it doesn't always match up to what I consider a segment of my route. For example, a major intersection where I'm not making a turn. And some routes turn several times during a segment.
Nav to POI is also handy, but the route it picks doesn't always match the route I am riding. Plus it's not practical to use if my route has several POI's.
Just to be clear, this is a simple data field and not a new map display or turn by turn feature.
We already have "distance to end of route". This would be like that, only better.
