Yes, you read that right. I know, I must be some crazy Apple-centric fanboy who refuses to believe my believed Jobs and/or Cook would ever do anything wrong and no matter what flaws come out of Cupertino, they're all lies. That's not true. Well, not entirely, I am a dedicated Apple user but I try not to let that get to my head. So I'll be ready for whatever kind of ***** people throw at me reading this. Now that I got that cleared up, let's face it. Half a month in and I still haven't noticed a single problem first-hand with Apple's maps. In fact, I've actually - *gasp* heaven forbid! - noticed some improvements over Google's: A week ago I was looking up driving distances to a drive-in theater (yup, they still exist) from my city to a small rural town called Perth (in Canada) about an hour away. Or at least that's what Apple said. I double checked on Google and it said 17 hours. Now I've been to this town before and I know it does NOT take anywhere near 17 hours. If anything, it's less than an hour. So when some fandroids tried to argue with me about Apple's maps, I brought up the issue and they said Google was trying to direct me to Perth, Australia even though I clearly remembered specifying the Canadian Perth and seeing the same route as Apple's. But giving them the benefit if the doubt, 17 HOURS TO DRIVE TO AUSTRALIA FROM CANADA? Something's up. Later, my friends offered the example of how some of the roads in our city were distorted in Flyover. Well, so far only three cities in Canada actually HAVE flyover, the one we live in just has 3D. And if I'm not mistaken, 3D maps is basically just the satellite, top view image of the city placed atop a contour of the area's ground elevations, so of course it's nothing close to Flyover (I still don't quite understand the purpose of 3D non Flyover maps to be honest). But even with the "3D" icon in the corner, they were CONVINCED they were looking at Flyover and that it was Flyover that was distorting everything. And no matter how many times I clarified, they still ignored me. TL; DR, I've become more frustrated by people bashing maps who have never even tried them then the maps service itself. I think it really just comes down to that some people just love bashing Apple and finding errors in their services and products, and completely ignoring other companies who make the same mistakes. But to anyone who HAS read what I've written, have I really gone insane? Does no one else out there not mind/ prefer Apple's maps? Or just haven't really noticed anything awful? And has anyone else noticed any similar gaping errors in Google's maps?
