Fucken Google Maps

Am I correct that the distance scale bar that used to be in the Google Maps mobile app is now gone in the new Android version update and there is no setting to make it appear? Why the motherlovin son of a fucke would they get rid of that?????????

    They do it just to fuckke with you and increase your blood pressure, also because most users ignore it as they have no idea what it is.

    Most users of a map application have no idea that a little measuring rule that says “1 mile” next to it indicates that the length of that rule on the map represents one mile in the real world?

    you can easily measure the distance between two points by using “directions”. I guess they removed it because the “crow flying distance” between two places is sort of useless (at least on mobile devices). What is useful is the length of the paths that you will need to take and that depends on the medium that you will use (drive, walk, bike, transit?). All of these can be easily computed using the directions feature.

    Since zooming in the app is free-form, it is nice to be able to just eyeball distances using a scale bar. Fucke these fuckers for taking it out.

    Settings->Display->Scale Bar = yes

    Aw, Jim, come on, it’s always fun to watch the proffe stew and fume. You shoulda let him go on longer.

    Oh, well, he’ll find some other dumbass thing to complain about soon enough.

    There is no scale bar in the latest update. Just “uninstall” if it’s a permanent app in your phone. It’ll get rid of the update.
