In Mario Kart 8 the Wii U gamepad can display a map that will show a general overview of the current course, as well as your current position, and those of your opponents on the map. It will also list all players and give some information about them.
However, I don't use the gamepad to play, and I thus I can't see any kind of map. I personally always like to have a general idea of where I am to measure how far ahead or behind I am, and without the gamepad it seems I can't.
Is there any way at all to get a map to display on the TV, so I'm not tied down the the Wii U gamepad?
NOTE: I'm not particularly looking to have the player list onscreen, but if that is also possible, it's worth mentioning.
