Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's a tough one. I'm not sure what how many inches equal miles on the first one, but the left hand side describing the stats for the map has the RF scale of the map set as this: 1:1,100,000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol, that's true! Actually, the RF scale just means that for every, say, inch on the map, it equals 1,100,000 inches in real life. Not sure how that can translate back to the kind of scale you are looking for, though, sorry...
