    At the top of this page it says, "Save this map?
    Pan and zoom to adjust". We can zoom in and out, which is very useful if we're using a map to walk around a city. We're going to need to zoom in quite a lot because we need to see the details of the locations and streets. If we're just driving from one city to another, we don't need much detail, we just need to see the big roads. To zoom in, we just pinch out to zoom in and pinch in to zoom out.
