    Im sorry... but apple maps is garbage compared to google maps

    Don't mean to over exaggerate, apple maps is kinda decent, at the same time... it has alot!!! Of catching up to do

    I hope google releases google maps in the apps store along with youtube... I'd be willing to pay for it


    And care to agree.. or disagree

    Can't agree or disagree since as of right now iOS 6 hasn't been released
    So I haven't seen Apple's maps

    Apple should release Apple Maps as an app - so we can try before we commit.

    I suspect iPhone 5 and iOS6 will be the first time I've held off on any upgrades.

    What a piece of garbage!

    I had faith in Apple, I didn't think they would do something so silly, but I see that they did. Google "just worked", it dealt well with anything you threw at it. The new map app does not. Many of the POIs are inaccurate, some of the roads are labeled with names that were changed years ago, it can't find directions for many of the routes I tried... It looks more like a 10 year old Chinese GPS device than an Apple app.

    It's a pathetic piece of garbage. I would pay for a Google Maps app.

    I'm good with it so far.
    I haven't had to go anywhere I don't know yet.

    dear oh dear

    Simple,Google Maps worked...........This sucks...........Unfortunately this is way outdated in my local area,still shows businesses that closed over a decade ago,sadly there isnt a decent equivalent in the app store to compensate....Backwards step Apple big time. :(

    it put the location on a map. it routed directions, gave me 3 options.

    if you want to use google maps, c&p the address. you're not getting old maps back. it's done. do what you have to, whatever that is. sorry for the extra 10 seconds it takes you.

    Did anyone else LOL when they clicked on the transit icon for directions only to be redirected to install transit apps? :p

    That's going to piss some users off. Just get rid of the transit icon if it doesn't work.
