location/distance with message
If someone messages you, be able to see distance even if they have location setting off, but perhaps system will not allow over-ride of settings. I think some people are not even aware that location setting us off.
Also, as one person suggested, show direction of distance, whether short or long.

I get a steady stream of the exact same script wanting my phone number. One thing in common: NO DISTANCE LISTED
