Hoping someone here could help answer a few questions I have while setting up my new Ledger.

When I say "send BTC to the device", yes I know the coins are on the blockchain and not in the physical device, what I mean is send to the wallet that is on the device.

I got a Ledger Nano X the other day. I just finished setting it up recently. I installed the Bitcoin app and made an account. I then got an address for that account that I can send BTC to. I sent a small amount of sats to the device and everything went perfectly. I then reset the device to recover it from the seed phrase to make sure everything was working. The recovery went well and I can see the correct amount of funds in the ledger live app.

I now want to send the rest of my sats to the device but when I went through the same process as the first time it gave me a different address to send the BTC to. Is this normal? I didn't think Ledger would create a new address for every transaction but is this what is happening?

Also, no matter where I navigate to I can not see the actual BTC balance I sent to the device on the device's screen. Is the only way to see the BTC balance by using the ledger live app? Is there anyway I can display the balance on the screen on the nano X?

TLDR: Is it possible to see BTC balance on the nano x device's screen? Is it normal for ledger to generate a new address for every time I want to send BTC to the device?
