I'm sure the directions ability of Maps is often under scrutiny from those that use it a lot in as much as it's not as good as this that and the other when compared to something like Google Maps or a dedicated Sat Nav, but I'm not about to make comparisons. All I want to know is why Apple made the damn thing with a superiority complex. To explain a few things that I'm constantly having a problem with it; first of all, it seems to ignore my choice of route. Say I put in point A to B and ask for directions, it shows me two possible routes (even though there's actually a third route I can take which is just as good as it's alternate choice if not better). The first route wants me to go on a motorway. I don't like driving on motorways so I change to the alternate route, and start navigation. While driving I realise it's directing me towards the motorway. On inspection I realise it's randomly changed the route back to the first suggestion that I brushed aside. I'm 100% not ********ting. It's done this to me at least three times in the last few months. I'm not sure if it's my fault and I didn't do something I was supposed to (I made the alternate route highlight by tapping on it and pressed the blue car icon next to the time then pressed start so I don't see how it could have mistaken my input or if I missed anything). Secondly, as stated above, it shows me usually one or two routes, sometimes three, but not always a third or fourth. In fact I've never seen it offer me a fourth route, it usually only offers me two. There's a regular route I started taking over the last few months that I don't know so I used the sat nav to learn the route. Maps only ever shows me two routes from A to B but I've since found there's a third route that's just as good if not better than route B, but Maps doesn't seem to think I need to know about it. Thirdly, and here's the clintcher and kind of ties in with the above two points. There's supposedly a little known trick to get it to display alternate routes that avoid roads like highways and suck. You set it to walking mode instead of driving. Yea, that's all fine and dandy. I did this once and sure enough got a route through the countryside that looked like a nice scenic alternative to the motorway, however while driving along it's directions I became suspicious when it directed me to the opposite direction I assumed I was to go in, I stopped and looked and found it had switched from walking to driving and again had picked the first choice. I set it to walking again, picked the scenic route, again, set off, and within seconds, the ****er was telling me to do a U-turn. Stopped again, and yet again it had changed back to driving mode and set the first route option again. Please tell me I'm not the only one that has this sort of issue with Maps? I'm sorely tempted to stop using it an djust download Google Maps again. That wasn't perfect but at least it gave you a bit of choice on your journey.
