    Anyone else suddenly have crazy inaccuracies with Apple maps? I had two just today. I live in a large city and these were obvious well known locations.

    Same here, it's even worse in Carplay. Read a few threads online that even replacement phones didn't fix it. I'm hoping that iOS 12 will fix it.

    I only use Apples maps for seeing where my car is. The rest id Waze or google maps.

    Apple maps is a joke. I’ve given it so many chances as my go-to choice but cannot stand it. Unreliable and lousy map detail.

    Google Maps or Waze here.

    I like it for its integration with my watch...but these were such ridiculous mistakes that I sort of don’t trust it is taking me to the right places now. Nothing like being late bc your phone map can’t figure out where you are going. I don’t usually use it for my cars as they are generally where I have left them;).

    I wish I could use Google Maps or Waze on my CarPlay. Stuck with Apple Maps.

    In regards to restaurants, I notice that Apple Maps relies on Yelp for many of its searches. If you type in a basic address such as "<restaurant name> <street name>", the search won't usually return correctly. For this reason, I stopped using it and have found much more success with Google Maps.

    My most recent Apple Maps/Siri/CarPlay fail was when I repeatedly asked Siri to take me to Kmart in a suburb 15km away, & it came back with a place called K & T Mart & message "directions not available between these locations".....I'm in Australia, & Apple Maps had Africa on screen....

    GIVE US GOOGLE MAPS ON CARPLAY ALREADY.

    Three destination fails this weekend! I wanted to go to three different businesses and Apple Maps took me to three different houses.

    Give us Waze on CarPlay!
