I want to use Maps when driving to a known destination without entering a destination. But I would still like to see the streets, all the other benefits and the traffic reports like every other GPS.
How Can I Do That?

@Parayil Make a long story short.
1. Long press on the map app.
2 Press the 4 grey square in the top (Maps Widgets).
3 Press and hold "Drive mode", move it to the board.

Both you and mine solution will require a destination, so this is not the answer to the question.

We need a 3D map that will follow our direction with live traffic information and "add a report".  NO destination setup.
