Creating a custom map as per MaryC's answer is good if you want something you save permanently or embed and don't mind going through a multi-step process with a different UI to get there. I also found a quick and easy alternative that uses only the regular Google Maps 'directions' UI. Basically you just drag part of the path then drop it where it was: ...

This is a real pain point for me too. I get around the issue by searching for directions between my desired location and a second location that is a suitable distance away. For example, instead of "Ocala, FL" try searching for "Ocala to Orlando" or even "Ocala to Miami". This does require some rudimentary geographical knowledge about the wider area you're ...

I think the answer is bound to be no if only because otherwise the unscrupulous would be assigning their own telephone number to their competitors' listings etc, but the most specific denial I can find is: Only business owners or authorized representatives may verify and manage their business information on Google My Business. from here.

Down in the lower-right corner there should be a scale indicator (in km). Just click it. Then your units will switch to miles. Click again to switch back. If you're zoomed in, it'll change the units (feet vs. meters) but it works the same.
