Like most i've been very critical on ios6 maps, rightly so, it's riddled with issues. Traffic monitoring it seems isn't one of them. Today on the way home, mayhem, gridlock everywhere. The motorway or highway for our American friends was closed due to an accident. Unfortunately i wasn't using turn by turn as it would have been interesting to see where it routed me. Traffic problems were much more accurately reported than google traffic live. The queuing start and finish points were displayed roughly in the right places on Apple traffic where as google was out by around nearly a mile. Even checking 15 mins later Google hadn't adjust their traffic overlay on the road i was on. I was quite impressed and providing you have the full address turn by turn is pretty decent too. I know it has it's issues as well as the inexcusable use of bad data or lack of data on the maps side but i think it's a decent product for turn by turn and traffic. Lets hope they fix their mapping data, survey and business data and they there is no doubting it will be a great mapping product. Google will probably never give us turn by turn, so at least this gives us hope in the product.
