How can I get the compass back for navigation?
3
I noticed that the compass is completely gone when I'm using Google Maps navigation! Now there's no way to tell what direction I'm driving in. The only related option in Navigation Settings that I could see was to have the map North up at all times but I hate driving like that. There used to be a compass icon that would show you what direction you were driving in at all times. How do I get that back??

Duh. Google. Maps have had a NSEW indicator for centuries. Most of the population is still savvy enough for them to matter. I'm sorry your hipster engineers don't understand them. That just makes me really concerned about the future of b humanity when we lose basic human knowledge. In words maybe your hipster engineers can understand: Google, today you made me sad.
