Turn-by-turn box on the right, can it be moved to the left side of the screen

The TBT nav box is located on the left side of the nav screen on the S and X. I find it very difficult to see on the far right side of the screen and is distracting and dangerous. Is there a way to relocate the TBT box to the left?
I have the same wish for the alphabetic index for the USB media player. It would be much easier to read and to reach if it were on the left.

I would greatly prefer it was on the left. I would also like a much lighter background in the area where the time and temperature and such are shown; as it is now the information often gets lost in the map details behind it.
I don't disagree but rarely look at the turn by turn directions. Looking at the map and listening are really all I need.
I know this request has come up many times but would be interested in knowing how often and why do you read the directions?
With the much larger display in the Model 3 then I've ever had in other cars I find looking at the map has pretty much eliminated reading the directions.
