I'm using Google Maps in the Maps app on my iPad but I cannot find a scale bar.
Where is the scale bar for Google Maps in the native Maps app on an iPad?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.


There is no scale bar in Maps for iPad. I think it is not official (yet) because even on Android it can only be enabled from the "Labs" settings. So, it is not part of the official Google Maps images.


There is no scale bar in the Maps app, but you can use the app Mapscale, which gives you exactly what you desire.
