Maps now lack scale of miles, a helpful bit of information.

For the most part, I like Google maps over the old ones. However, it is missing a scale of miles which the old maps had just implemented not that long ago, maybe a year or so.

It's a simple enough conversion. 1 km is 5/8 of a mile, so 2 km amounts to a mile and a quarter. But yes, it would be better if it would appear in both units on the map.

Good news, bad news.

We've had a scale of miles on Gas Buddy / Google maps for a while now and I do appreciate it.

However, it is in metric only, forcing many to make the conversion to miles. Seems like an oversight.

Thank you for your time.
