One of the main ways that you can navigate when close to the ground without dealing with the laggy interface panel is by peering down. What I would suggest if it wasn't too much effort code wise, is allowing a second argument on peer. To essentially peer in the down east down west down ETC direction. And the same for up. This could be shorthanded into a letter symbol with DE DW DS DN DNE DSE and so on, if adding a second modifier onto the verb would be unfeasible.
