  6. 6
    Tap on an option under the "Layers" section to enable or disable it. The first section of the menu is "Layers", and this is what we're editing today. In this example, all of the layers are enabled which means all of the options that have check marks will appear on the map. In this example, we will tap on "Roads" to disable it. The check mark will disappear to indicate that the option is disabled. If we want to enable it we will tap on it again, and it will bring back the check mark which means it has been enabled again and when we're on "Google Earth" and zoom in, the enabled features will appear.
