Plenty of time I'd like to quickly check distance from my current GPS location to selected point on map.

I'd wish just to move a cursor and see on the top line how far is it to there.

Currently in navigation mode TB shows distance from point on the map to next waypoint and it's a lovely feature. But it would be the best to have both distances on the same line (there is enough space):
1. distance from GPS location to point on the map (requested feature)
2. distance from point on the map to next waypoint (already exists)

In fact I would also allow to quickly check distance to next waypoint even if a road to it isn't a straight line

What do you think about it?

Generalized: Fast creation of temporary waypoint at GPS or cursor position would be useful. Then return to previous navigation.

Agreed ... just moving the cursor and calculating/showing the distance between cursor and actual position would be really cool ... a must have feature which should be easy to implement Smile
