Dear Joseph,

if you choose to edit the flight plan in the GCS and you click on a waypoint, you'll get a window filled with the specification of the waypoint. You can change the reference to the position from WGS84 to any other waypoints. In this case you'll get the relative position in polar coordinates, namely distance and direction.

What would it take to add a measurement tool to the GCS? I often
struggle to estimate how far my waypoints are from each other or the
distance to some objects.

Or is it better to use mavlink and an existing GCS with preexisting
measurement tools?
