Driving mode errors: assistant volume for messages, dark/bright maps, calibration function missing.

When using driving mode the assistant voice volume will suddenly drop, then return to normal. Repeatedly happens when reading out new text messages. No way to turn off or disable the assistant saying "Auto read is on, if you'd like to turn it off head to settings..." every time the app is started and a message arrives.

Driving mode will display the map in "bright mode" overriding the user settings, but switch to dark mode when navigation begins.

Map location "cone" (when stationary) is wide and cannot be calibrated to face in the correct direction, the only calibration function available is to take photos of street signs etc. There is no option for using the "figure 8" to calibrate, and it has no effect.

Current speed on the map in driving mode is far too small to be seen without looking directly at the screen, creating a driving hazard when the assistant announces a speed camera nearby. Like text size, the size of the numbers should be adjustable.
