The scale will show with whatever profile setting you are using if the route option (settings/route options) is set to Hike (off road). It also shows when touching the screen for the four corners or to pan the map.

With my 710 the map scale only shows when I am in Hiking, Geocaching or Marine Profile.
When I am in Vehicle, Pedestrian or Bike Profile no map scale shows.
I suspect it's because while in those profiles I would be on a route and the route directions are giving me distances to the next turn.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

? I'm seeing a map scale on my 710 in the lower right on the map screen. Of course it does not show in 3D mode.

It would be very helpful to have a map scale when on the map page--competition units have scale shown and it is very helpful to judge distance-- 😉
