Well...certainly not a "disaster" anymore, although it never really was for me. Decided to finally jump on the train after beta 5 was released and have to say I'm even more impressed with the maps UI than I was with iOS6. I have to admit, I did like the clarity of the green signs and the skeuomorphism associated with those. I've noticed a distinct increase in poi accuracy and have always had MUCH better luck with physical addresses and routing with Apple over Google. Google clearly has the poi info down, but driving directions, signage graphics and "best" route info was horrible for me on a regular basis. Anyway, post away thoughts, complaints, errors, pics....here are some from me. LOVE that all the pertinent info is on the main screen now...very clear and easy for me to read at a glance. Single tap on the screen brings up the "options" for maps....goes away on its own once selections or made or after a few seconds...no need to "re-tap." Same shot without the options menu showing.
