    Pretty sure I remember seeing a tweak for these two a little while ago. Does anyone know what this is? For Maps, well, everything gets redirected to Google Maps instead of default maps. For Chrome, whenever a page is clicked that would normally be opened in safari would get opened in Chrome instead. Many thanks.

    Default browser: Browser Changer or BrowserChooser

    Default Maps: MapsOpener

    Tip: I'm pretty sure Browser Changer does both of these in one tweak so you don't have to install two separate packages. But I think MapsOpener works better universally but I could be wrong. Browser Changer supports a ton of 3rd party browsers. Been a while since I used any of these so I might be a little off on my details. I rarely use links to google maps so the default behavior is fine for me and I am loving safari on iOS6.

    I hope this helps!

    Most of us don't have any doubt, both those hacks have been available on Cydia for some time and are tried and tested.

    In fact, had the thread starter tried a Google search, he would have had the answer almost instantly.

    If you don't have, well and good. But some can have. And some can have an issue which the above link might solve. It was just for helping purpose.
