[iPhone] Show compass on screen at all times
Very handy to see the compass direction on the screen to get a sense of direction when the map is oriented to the direction you're heading in. Currently you can only see this by touching the screen to bring up the compass button. If it was a small permanent icon over the top right corner of the map it would be a huge help.
Configurable at Settings – Map display – Quick access.

Not working on carplay
a navigation app without a compass? seems kinda stupid.

Yes - a small compass would be helpful. Showing the map controls is not a solution, because showing the zoom controls all the time is not helpful.

For a quick fix you can go to Settings > Advanced > (turn off) Display map controls on tap.
This will put an arrow icon on the screen that always points to North on the map.
this would be great for android phones that have compass too!
I don't think the "display map controls" setting really does the trick. I would like what Philip suggests, an onscreen compass in the corner at all times.

In your Settings, under Map, turn "Display map controls on tap" off; problem solved!
