    For some reason, this is all I get. No matter which city I'm zoomed in on, or if I'm in satelite, hybrid or standard. Reinstalled iOS6 twice now, wtf is wrong? :confused:

    Never seen that on mine, it's just a beta bug. If you restored chances are it would work again.

    Can somebody post a satalite view of my street. As close as you can get.

    England
    Barrow-in-Furness
    Lincoln Street

    You could just search the street and town name in google maps so i'm assuming its the same here?

    Just want to know what my town looks like. If it's in 3D I will come to your house and kiss your face. :)

    I am very disappointed with the UK coverage. Where I work in Birmingham, the satellite view looks like its from the 1950s.

    So far there are only about 10 places with 3D maps. San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, Stockholm - can't remember the others

    I know its pre-beta, but Apple need to get their act together if they expect us to use it as a replacement to the old Maps. They also need to do something about caching the maps. It has to reload SO MUCH data.

    Also - anyone noticed the new share panel?

    Thanks for that.

    50's? No thats just what Barrow looks like!

    I see what you mean though, is all the UK black and white?

    Very poor... I hope Google gives us a google maps app because this is pretty bad.

    Siri isn't finished and they released it, and these maps aren't. Seems like Apple is lacking a man at the top to say "This isn't good enough."

    Majority is in colour, black and white appears occasionally at different zoom levels. UK does have 3D terrain but no 3D buildings yet it seems.

    Are there any 3D Maps of places in Canada? I don't have an iPad or iPhone 4S to test it on.

    So i must have missed this but are those computer generated images in 3d instead of actual 3d images like on google? If it is then even more of a failure of this new apple map.

    I got the same thing tonight when I installed on my 4S.
    I thought it was because the phone wasn't a registered developer device but after restoring to 5.1.1 and trying again I got the maps the 2nd time around.

    As was stated at WWDC, Apple has literally flown aircraft around these cities to take photos from all angles. Those photos are then composited using 3d modeling software. If everything was just computer-generated, then there would e no reason to have such a limited number of cities available with the 3d feature.

    Apparently the data exists for a 100 cities. Apple is probably just starting with a small sample while they tweak the system. I'm hoping that's the case. ;)
