Predictably the Pc fanboys are offended.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Looks a game changer to me. I bet Apple builds off that and does really cool stuff.
So you used to care about accuracy... now it doesn't matter

I hope Trevor doesn't ban you.
FWIW, I was referring to the positioning of yourself on the map. Too often with google maps (and this could be a hardware GPS thing, but it doesn't seem to happen with mapquest), the phone will sit there with a wide bubble of like .25 mile and not narrow down on where you are. Then when it does you are passed your turn.
Different kind of accuracy Sherlock.

LOL - finally Gomer at a loss for words.
You were pretty proud of yourself for bumping this thread, weren't you? Too bad it was all for naught.
Looks like bulldogg has been consistent to me. His position in the other thread (and this one it seems) is that Google offers a watered down solution on iOS. Apple didn't have much choice other than set out on their own.
Because when you're a quarter mile off in Portland on crApple maps, it doesn't matter at all. The whole east side of the city has been turned into a park.

Haha ... I get it ... Putting that "cr" in front of Apple. You are one funny guy.
Again, no need to justify to me anymore why you aren't getting an iPhone 5. I get it and I'm ok with your decision.
Just turn right, onto the railroad tracks!
I just tried this out for my home town. Map worked faster and was a little more seamless than with google for scrolling around.
No issues here.
But but but but Android has.......................................
what it has is a geek friendly system.
Nothing wrong with that but if you don't lke your Android phone you don't update.
I can't figure out why some are so offended that OS6 doesn't have Google maps since they don't have iPhones anyway.
Google maps standalone iOS app now available.
Thanks- my first impression after limited use is that it is better and faster than old Google maps on iPhone.
yup. Looks great too. How do I make it the default maps app on my phone?
I used Windows / MS when we got our first IBMs. Didn't move to Mac until 18 months ago when the most recent Office for Mac came out because I live in an Office dependent world.
Blindly loyal has nothing to do with it. Comes a time where I don't have to be a geek. I enjoy not having to learn 27 steps to make my computer/phone work better. Comes down to being willing to be lazy. iPhone synchs with MacBookPro all the time. iPhoto is easy. iTunes is easy.
Google wants to have their own closed system. They have the cash but when they bought Motorola Mobility the Chinese stepped in and made them agree to keep Android open for 5 years. Got to believe Apple thinks Google will be having closed Chrome/Android and Apple Maps will be needed. Not just now.

Samsung would never miss a chance to take advantage of an Apple slip, and two beat up vehicles in Australian cities it made an exhibition of prove it. Remember the Australian police warning not to use Apple Maps to get around arid national park territories in the middle of nowhere, as you might end up, well, in the middle of nowhere?...
Yea, I'm not sure that will happen anytime soon (ex: Safari).
Yep, that's the annoying part. This is no different than what Microsoft did with IE as the default browser (later subject of antitrust claims).
