I read that they've hired some new people to work specifically for the Maps app, I'm guessing they'll be releasing it for iOS 6. I hope they are serious about maps and will bring big improvements and make the Maps app a real navigation application. This is what I'd like it to have... -Route priority - Shortest, Fastest, Optimized. -When routing display all kinds of routes to the point all with distances and arrival time pop ups when you tap on them. This is good cause it'll give you an overview of all possible routes and from there you can select the one you want. If you take no action, it should select the route it thinks is the best or your prioritized route from options(Shortest, Fastest, Optimized, etc...) -Option for 3D orientation of the map -"Align map to route" Maps does not have that, you can turn on compass but it bad because it asks for a recalibration every time, and if you have an iPhone already in the cradle, it's a pain to remove-recalibrate-place back. -Routing priority -Day/Night mode, with auto switch option -Route recalculation, for when you divert off-route. Should also have an option of when recalculating showing you again, all possible routes, and if you take no action it should take the route it thinks is the best or the type of route you have selected in options(fastest, shortest, optimized, etc...). -You should be able to drop multiple pins and route between them, also be able to add/drop transit pins -Avoidance - Toll roads, Ferry, Unpaved roads, etc... Avoid, Allow, Ask. -Map caching, first when you set a route it should start caching it, so if you set it up at home, you'll have all the data loaded when you leave. Also there should be an ability to download maps for a specific country or a city, it's very handy when you travel abroad. Are you going to Spain? Download the Spanish map before you leave and you're set. -Search by coordinates, photo(GPS coordinates from a Photo in your Camera Roll or Library) -"Home" location -Display speed limits -Points of Interest display - Route tracking/trail feature would be nice, with recorded log of speed, distance, time. -Location sharing/Car Linking - For driving in convoy, two or more cars with constant link on the map with track/trail option... for following if the car in front drives much faster... ...Imagine you're traveling in two cars, both your location(dot) and your friend's dot would show in your(and your friend's) maps, with your friend's dot having a small tracking trail. Would make driving with two cars and following each other so much easier, instead of the usual... "Oh no, he went through the light, and I'm stuck, hopefully he looks back, sees I'm not there and stops to wait for me".
