Google was able to deliver good turn-by-turn navigation on the iPhone 3GS and 4!

So why wasn't Apple able to?

People are definitely going to be asking this question as they fire up Google Maps and find that turn-by-turn navigation is there and works great.

I wonder if Apple will release it in an update to at least match Google Maps on features for all iOS 6-capable devices? Seeing how easily Google did it (in a 7MB app no less!) is EXTREMELY embarrassing for Apple.
