Measure the distance between two or more points on the map It is very simple. We just have to do a long press to add a red marker. This marker will be the starting point of the measurement. Once the marker is created we have to swipe up the card the name of the site to see all the options. There we will find the option to measure distance.

To measure the distance, we just have to move the map so that the black circle is at the point we want to measure. At the bottom of the map we will see the total distance. If we want to add several points we just have to touch the blue + sign to add points.

If we have made a mistake when adding the last point, we can eliminate it with the undo option. If we want to delete all the points at once we can go to Menu> Delete.
