tRCMB - Where MSU fans eat their own.
I could have sworn Google earth had this years ago. Am I crazy?
You clearly don't know what you're talking about. You don't even have 3D buildings on.
Google Maps on the iPhone isn't good - they can do better.
Google Maps sucks for navigation on the iPhone. Even MapQuest is much better.
I believe that Google Maps is better on the Android (not surprising) - Google just doesn't seem to be putting in the effort to the iPhone app, so I don't blame Apple for creating/acquiring their own.

There isn't even a 3D buildings option on the mobile version of Google Earth for iOS.
Personal electronics brand choices: serious business.
3D maps exists on the Android version. So why can't iOS make it happen?
Hope it is more accurate than Google. I have had it be off twice today, once considerably off.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
That is up to Google to make that happen on the iOS since they make Google Maps. As I stated though, Google isn't in a hurry to make the iOS version any better because ... well ... they also make the Android. You see ... that is why Apple wants to do away with Google Maps.
You all caught up now?
The accuracy of Google Maps on the iOS is horrible ... and it seem like it is getting worse.
Looks like sim city 2000.
Take a left at... GODZILLA!!!
It's not enough to bash in heads, you have to bash in minds.
Do I care what the map looks like? No. Just give me correct directions. Lol.
so basically, it's google maps without the overlays of showing the street names or things you might want to see like gas stations, atm's, restaurants, lodging, or even traffic conditions.
Actually it should have all that. One of the three mapping companies that Apple purchased over the last few years is Placebase, which has a more extensive points of interest database, and more data layers, than Google does.
Will it have turn-by-turn? Honestly, the only thing I miss from Android is the built-in turn by turn that came with the Google Maps app on the phone.
The new iPhone is gonna be so awesome. It's going to have really cool maps with navigation, a big screen, 4G and voice activation.
Just like Android phones from 2 years ago!
I know, you condescending jackass.
Ok...I see. So basically that image was like the image of the football field in SS that we see every Late July/August that has no lines on it and whatnot.
That photo was a mockup of the 3D view. They'll still have a standard map view obviously, etc.
That looks pretty and if I wanted wallpaper it would be awesome, but since I need a map I actually prefer the flat ones where the roads aren't obstructed by buildings.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
This video is of C3's maps running on the iPad back before Apple purchased them, so it gives you a good idea of what the 3D view of the maps app will look like...good stuff starts about :45 seconds in...

Isn't it all based on the same data? Satellite and some aerial? Isn't Microsoft Bing in the game? So it's a question of who can massage the data the best, right?
