You basically have to arrange the different "apps" on the menu in the drivers display. Put the Navigation one on top and leave it there. I have the Trip Computer arranged as the second one.
When I start the car, it will show the Trip Computer setting UNTIL the car receives the GPS signal from a satellite. It will then switch over to Navigation and I have to press the Enter button on the steering wheel. It will then show the compass and the street name of where I am at. It usually only take 30 seconds or so for it to pick up the satellite.
It will NOT automatically show the compass or street name, you have to press the Enter button every time when the Navigation is showing in the menu such as after a restart of the car.
