Drop Multiple Pins in Maps

This isn't so much for me, but more for my mother. She is constantly wanting to look at the distances between multiple places/have multiple places open on a map on her 4th gen iPad. Neither her, I, or a Google search can find an answer on how to do this. It can't have more than two places open at once (one with a dropped pin and one open via a search) in either Apple Maps or Google Maps in iOS 6. Is there any way to do this in iOS 6 or will iOS 7 bring this functionality?
