    Hi when I do a search for a business on my iPhone and I hit the get directions, Google maps opens instead of Apple maps. How do I get Apple maps to open instead of Google maps?

    You're probably using Google as your default search engine. I think using Google defaults to this behavior.

    I'm searching on mobile Safari with Google.

    Sounds like that's likely because it's through Google, which ends up pointing to its own service (Google Maps).

    I typed in an address in the bar and instead of Google maps it pointed to Apple Maps. When I type a name of a business it directs me to Google maps for directions.

    When you typed the address in, did it perform a Google search and gave you Google results for that address at which point you had to tap on one to select it?

    As a test you can do a search for something from Google and then another one from Yahoo!, all in Safari, and see what differences you get.
