    Hi: I am looking for a simple GPS App for my iPadAir 2 that will just give me the distance from my current location to several other places that I specify (no coordinates, routes, etc)...I had such an app for my old Android tablet which has now gone to it's rest, and it was really handy and fun...I know you can get the same info from other GPS programs, but I am looking for one that will do only what I have described...Any ideas are welcome, and Thank You!

    Probably not exactly what you were looking for, and a bit overkill for the job, but MotionX's GPS HD app has a measure tool that will give you the distance between two points. The basic version is free, so it won't hurt to check it out.

    Think of GPS HD as a kind of Map/GPS multitool, with both the benifits and limitations that implies.

    Though it's been a long time since I've used it, the Google Earth app also had a measure tool. No idea if it still does, or has even been updated recently.

    May I suggest you try Pocket Earth, which also has a free version.
