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 Google Maps.
  2. Tap the Menu Menu.
  3. Tap Settings and then Show scale on map.
  4. Choose When zooming in and out or Always.
