Switching from % to miles and back

Anybody else find it annoying that this takes so many actions?
1) why can't the charging screen show both? There is tons of white space above the car with battery.
2) why can't I tap the mile or % to switch between each? Maybe one tap to toggle miles/% and double tap to go directly into charging.

How many taps does it take to switch?

My only guess is Tesla expects most people to "set it and forget it" and rarely toggle back and forth.
You have to tap to bring up the menu, then tap display, then tap the gear icon for the sub menu. Then select to change it, then close out. If it was just shown on the charging page that is quick to access. I know there is no real need to switch but I like to see both.
