I tried out the new iOS6 maps this morning for the first time and compared it to my experience with Waze. As usual, Apple isn't necessarily the first, but they take a simple, elegant approach that makes the experience better. For example, the street names are on raised signs instead of labeled on the ground. The graphics are really smooth. And as usual, other folks' solutions have more features. I used Waze's speed indicator, but I can live without that. It's nice in Waze for different conditions to be shared (cops, hazards, accidents, etc.). So far, I'm not really sure Apple's directions take into consideration traffic conditions. And, if they do, if they continuously update based on changing conditions. Overall, I like the presentation.
