How do I measure the distance between points on the map?

Distances can be measured on the Maps page by holding down two fingers on the map until the ruler appears. The ruler can be moved across the map to take measurements between any two points. The measurements shown are in relation to the dashed line the text sits on and not the centerline of the ruler, so be sure to line up the top or bottom of the ruler with your route.  Differences in values between the top and bottom lines are due to the difference between routes in relation to great circle routes between points.  Please see our Maps Ruler video below.

When using the ruler in flight, the current groundspeed will be used to show the travel time between the points being measured. When not in flight, the TAS from your current route or default aircraft will be used instead.

Fuel burn estimates are also shown using the fuel burn provided for the current route or from the default aircraft.

All time and fuel estimates are based on no-wind conditions.
