As I'll be driving soon and am aiming to be as safe as possible (no recklessness here ), I'm debating whether to use Apple's Map app at this point for turn-by-turn. The interface is great although I do find directions can still be lacking. I've had numerous experiences in iOS 6 with it misplacing movie theaters and restaurants, and I notice the path on the overview is sometimes on the wrong side of the road. If I wasn't going to use Apple Maps, I'd likely use a standalone GPS rather than paying for an app. Google Maps is of course a great alternative but interface and speech isn't up to par with Apple's Map app. Is Apple Maps okay to use for someone new to driving that needs the guidance or is it still confusing locations? As a test, I tried getting directions to a nearby outlet and based on the direction of the car in the image it seems to be making me turn into oncoming traffic? What's going on here...? The right-most lane (from image perspective) seems to be the correct way to go but apple hasn't nailed the exact path yet.
