Always show the scale bar

On your mobile device, you can see the scale bar all the time or only when zooming in and out.

Note: If you're using Google Maps on your computer, you can't change the scale bar visibility. It will always appear at the bottom right of the screen.

To see the scale bar:

  1. On your mobile device, open the Google Maps app Maps.
  2. Tap your profile picture or initial Account Circle.
  3. Tap Settings Settings and then Scales.
  4. Choose While zooming or Always.
