I have two phones I play Ingress with. On one, when no portals are displayed in the main view, the closest two or three portals are indicated by little “‹distance› to this portal” tags. On the other phone (almost the same display size+resolution), these don't show up under any circumstances. enter image description here

Thus, what controls these tags? How do I turn them on?

  • What phones/OS do you use? By the way, as far as i know it's not allowed to play 2 accounts. If I was you, I wouldn't risk to get banned on a level 13 account. Or are you using just 2 phones with the same account? Thats not a big deal, but can also cause trouble if you switch phones too often. Some friends had this problem.

    No I do NOT play with two accounts, and I'm careful to terminate the client on phone A before I start it on phone B (actually it terminates itself because the battery runs out). Commented Apr 19, 2016 at 7:05
  • The phones both run CyanogenMod 12 (LG Optimus G, Samsung S5). Commented Apr 19, 2016 at 7:07
  • For me that often happens when the network is very slow. Mostly in public transport.

It may depend on your zoom level, phone hardware, internet connection, etc. Just make sure you have the configuration option enabled and play with your zoom level.
