    Even better would be if it displayed prices at each station.

    Let me guess. As-the-crow-flies distance with no regard to what road you're on. I bet it shows stations that are "2 miles away", but in reality would take you 20 minutes to get there because there isn't a street the goes straight east 2 miles. I'm sure it doesn't account for traffic either. It's only helpful if it'll take into account those critical variables and finds you the station that takes the LEAST TIME to get there.

    That font is awful. It does look a lot like Comic Sans. I hope it's customizable.

    My 2014 Jetta Sportwagen TDI has both gas stations & diesel stations on the GPS but I learned to NOT trust it. Having the diesel engine, I selected "diesel" and on 4 separate occasions it routed me to stations that do NOT carry diesel. Apparently never did. In 2 other cases it routed me to stations that were closed and both looked closed for many many years. I could see if the VW installed GPS was 5-6 years old but I was only at the 3-6 month mark! Poor info. for sure!

    At least it has direction arrows. It really annoys me that on some systems I pull up a list of POI near me, tap the closest one and find out it is 1 mile behind me. Useless!

    My Highlander gives prices as well as two other low fuel warnings just to make sure.

    Please tell me you can turn this crap off? Can we not even be bothered to monitor a fuel gauge anymore?

    I have a similar feature on a newer GM and almost never use it. I don't mind when the low fuel level light comes on, a chime also sounds and it pops up with a warning on the screen but it would be better if you could turn these off or at the very least the warnings timed out after 15 or 20 seconds. If I wanted to use it I could touch the button to show stations but I've had it come up in the middle of navigation or when looking at media info and you have to reach over and dismiss it since it never goes away on its own.
