Unhappy No street names at ANY elevation in v27?

I've read that people lose street names below a certain elevation (or maybe it's above - but whatever). However, I don't get street names at all. Is this normal?

Also, I can't get out of Perspective mode. I can turn it off in the diagnostic menu, but it doesn't turn off.

None in perspective...

..on my X3...but they return if I leave perspective and pick either direction of travel or pointing north modes at both 400 & 800 feet sizes.

Try using the direction menu setting and choosing "Direction of Travel." On mine the display pans as goes in and out of perspective...looks cool (but otherwise useless).

Thanks

Changing from Perspective to Direction of Travel gets street names back at some elevations. I just can't believe that street names are completely missing from Perspective.

I agree...

I agree...it's too bad there isn't a setting for detail like there is on a Garmin.
Or that the split display doesn't show the upcoming street name (again, like Garmin does). Maybe in the next version!
