    Change language to U.S. English. Should do the trick.

    the google uk website has walking in miles so i would have thought the uk iphone version would have localised it..

    1 miles = 1.60 kilometers
    1 kilometer = 0.62 miles

    The public transport feature is AMAZING. Maybe now I won't get lost as much (I'm living in a new city).

    Walking and running distances are almost always done in metres/kilometres.

    I wish it was a system-wide option to switch the whole Maps app to metric. Hell, I wish it was an option to switch all the road signs to metric, but I think that's slightly beyond the scope of the iPhone ;)

    Looks like a new bug for 2.2

    Anyone know if there is any issue with selecting 'USA' as my international setting and UK keyboard?

    Really? I just tried my usual journey in to work, and it came up with the most crazy route I've ever seen. (walk 2 miles, get a train in the opposite direction to my destination, get anther train into town, get a bus, walk, another bus...). Usual route is one train!
