Move driving direction off the screen

I have this issue too. That big green box with the turn by turn directions seems like it could be made smaller to see more of the map. It takes up way too much real estate.

Yes, the map in Google Maps and Waze are greatly obscured by the turn by turn display area. I wish to customize this like others. People keep asking for it for a reason!

Well, the entire android auto screen has been redesigned so we will see when that comes out. It looks promising.

This picture on top is a snapshot of the display on my '20 Rav4 with an 8 inch touch-screen.  This rather large direction box along with additional information at the bottom covers left half of the display.  As you can see, the green box is already partially covering the exit number on the map.  It gets worse if, unlike in the map displayed, the road is bending toward the left.

What is really odd is that if I do the exact same thing on my phone without projecting to the car's display, the box becomes shorter vertically (horizontal width of the green box remains the same).  Thus, if I just use my phone's display using AA, I have more view of the map.  This is the 2nd picture on the bottom.

Could someone look into this problem and possibly make the box smaller?  I am not quite sure why it behaves differently when the display is projected to the car's screen.  I would prefer what is displayed on the phone itself.

I am using the latest Android Auto and Google Maps (as of Mar. 1, 2020) on Samsung Galaxy S8 with Android Pie 9.  Everything works great except for this large green direction box covering almost half the screen.  When driving, I prefer glancing at the map and listening to the direction - as opposed to reading the direction as it could pose a safety hazard.
