    Not sure is this is a bug or deliberate in maps

    In 2.1 I am sure distances where based upon country
    Eg
    France km,us miles,australia km

    In 2.2 they are all based on your home country

    If someone is still on 2.1 could you try doing a route for the above countries to see if the distances are in miles/km

    Thanks

    I'm in the US on 2.1 and just checked some directions in France and the distance was km.

    I'm still on 2.1. I'm in California, US.
    I created a route in France with drop pins and got km
    Same thing for Aussie.

    Yup

    I'm still on 2.1 and in Canada, but in the U.S. gives me miles.

    Thanks for checking

    This seems to be how its should work, imo, so if you travel to another country you get the distances measured correct for that country

    With 2.2 it shows everywhere as your home country

    So if you are in the US every country you look at will also be in miles

    2.1 seems to work the same as google maps on he computer, 2.2 seems to be different

    Maybe Apple is just trying to test our math skills. :D
