I haven't used iOS 6, but haven't seen this discussed.

I think it would be EXTREMELY useful to be able to put several pins for different locations on a map at once.

For example, if I wanted to see where 3 different locations are in relation to distance from each other, I could put 3 different pins on the map (1 for a bar, another for a restaurant and another for a friend's house.)

I know if you type in "McDonalds" multiple pins show up for different McDonalds restaurants, but I would want different locations.

I'm guessing it can't be done though.

It would be a nice feature to have, unfortunately you can only have two at one time. A searched location and a dropped pin.

There is an app in the App Store called "Distance Measure" (by RBetjes) that might do exactly what you're looking for.

You need this,

And Apple needs to implement that into the Maps.app.

You can search for locations "on route" but you can't plot multiple POI's.
