    Does anybody know anything about why apple hasn't added any cities recently with the flyover feature in maps. I woulda thought by now they would of added more cities or even nationwide before ios 7. Dare I assume its doa ?

    Maps is updated in the cloud. They update and add fixes to Maps everyday..just going to take some time...i would imagine iOS 7 is where Maps will be drastically improved

    Well new cities for flyover have only come in new builds (or releases), haven't they? As far as I can remember there haven't been any added that were available immediately without updating.

    Still no satellite view of my region, just big pixels and iOS 6 io out from September now.

    I can't understand one thing: if Apple is using TomTom maps, how can they be so bad? Does TomTom provide also satellite images?

    What I do know: Apple uses more than a single vendor (TomTom) for their maps. These include Acxiom, AND, CoreLogic, DigitalGlobe, DMTI ... if you click on the bottom right hand corner of the Map App it will tell you a complete list (there are MANY)

    What I do NOT know: If TomTom provides their satellite imagery. Seeing as TomTom specializes in directions and map data, I would guess not.
