Truly disappointed in Apple Maps. Was navigating along Highway 290 West in the Texas Hill Country yesterday heading to a vineyard when the app instructed me to bear left and go southbound when the actual direction was to head northbound. It was the third time yesterday that the app had given incorrect instructions. The first time it happened I assumed perhaps I hadn't heard the directions correctly. The volume is difficult to hear when compared to Google Maps, which is not only loud and clear, but audibly lets you know your ETA. If that is not a new feature, realize that I don't use Google Maps frequently and have been trying to use the Apple Maps as I prefer using integrated apps in iOS. Apple Map's voice overs were barely audible over my Pandora stream (not hard rock but smooth Bossa Nova) and I have selected "loud" under settings. The differences between Apple Maps and Google Maps were like night and day. It is truly discouraging that Apple Maps is, sadly, still a third-rate application. I would much prefer to use Apple Maps than Google's app, but if I want to reach my destination correctly, it seems I'm left with little choice. Google Maps is more accurate, provides an audible ETA which is fantastic when you're hands-free and focusing on driving. My hope is that Apple will mend the many flaws extant in Apple Maps and hopefully make it a Google Maps killer. But it has lagged behind for some time now....beginning to doubt if it can ever pull ahead let alone catch up.
