    I've been using Navigon for turn by turn on all my iphones with great success. What's all the hub-bub about Apple maps?

    Same here. Apple Maps needs to be enticing enough to switch me from Navignon.

    I use to have android phone and it was great for me.

    ----------

    Why paid for something that I use for free when I had android phone.

    I use TomTom, but it's the same principle. I like TomTom better than Google Navigation. I like it better than Apple maps (iOS 6 beta). And I'll continue using it. It just has so many extra features. I was really hoping Apple wouldn't just mimic the simplistic Google Maps. But they did. :(

    There's just something about Navignon that I like. It didn't fail me on my 8 hour drive to Boston. Dead accurate and really helpful when trying to find other destinations along my route.

    Not everyone cares to pay between $30-120 for mapping software.

    Typical android users mentality.

    Because whatever Apple uses, is what automatically comes up wherever there's an address reference.

    Therefore the default app needs to be as nice as possible.

    I prefer Google Maps over Apple's new maps app and I'm a heavy iOS user.

    I dont like either personally.
    Navigon has so much stuff and is so easy to use I sold my standalone GPS unit.
    Why carry it around any more when I can have voice turn by turn with traffic on the phone. It was an easy choice.

    I usually don't use maps for turn by turn Navigation.

    I sort of use a little bit of everything. I own a Navigon stand-alone GPS, I use Google Maps on my computer, but I use Bing/Nokia maps on my phone. Each has their uses.

    I do not use GPS a lot, but as long as it gets me from point A to B with turn by turn voice I do not need any other bells and whistles.

    The current one would be great if it had turn by turn, so hopefully that is what the apple one is.

    This. All I need is turn-by-turn navigation with spoken directions and I'm good. I don't need street view or flyover or anything else.

    LOL. Literally made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that. ;) *Pictures someone actually in a city trying to navigate using the stars* :D

    Sorry, I'm not going to pay $30-$120 for navigation when I get it free with the OS.

    And I use maps every day. Google maps are great, and I think apple maps will be great as well
