Include Time in Navigation Pane Instructions
It would be nice if the user could have the option of having the time of a navigational instruction appear in the Navigation pane and included in the audible driving direction (if enabled).

Obviously, this would render the tip (http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/3378-create-audible-time-checks-reminders-microsoft-streets-trips) redundant which is alright with me.

In detail, I would like to be able to right-click on a particular instruction in the Driving Directions pane to toggle "on" the inclusion of the respective time of the direction. It would be nice if this action would be marked by a small icon such as a clock face on the driving direction line.

Then, when navigating in Navigation pane mode (full-screen or not), the time of the instruction would be incorporated into the instruction (along with the mileage to that point which is already included) of those opted-in instructions. Since Microsoft Anna (or Sam) will read whatever is in the instruction, the user will also get the audible if enabled.
