Previously when calculating directions within the United States, the user was forced to use miles. E.g. "Turn right at Sutterville Rd 1.0 mi" is now "Turn right at Sutterville Rd 1.6 km". Well I just noticed one can now toggle "km | miles", located between the final destination and "add destination". This is a big win for metric buffs like myself.
