Re: [Poll]How important an issue Apple Maps to you?

Maybe I'll download the Navigon app as backup. Never hurts to have backup.

You also thought that Heathrow Fl is more relevant for US citizens than Heathrow Airport.

in which case Apple usually does right by their customers.

"Your holding it wrong!" - yes, they do right by the customers

And that "little gem" has already been patched, it would have taken Apple what, months to fix it?

I like the new GPS turn by turn, but a feature I crave for is the ability to save future route data in case I lose cell coverage. This happened to me last weekend when I went on a rural trip with areas having spotty cell coverage. Thankfully it wasn't too big of a trip and I was able to find my way around.

I do miss Google's transit directions though... but I've since replaced it with a third party Transit app. Kind of stupid to have it pop open a brand new app after the input though...

Street view... I never really used it before, but I wish the feature was still there, for those few occasions when I did and do want to use it.

think about those Sprint and Verizon users that will stop navigating when the phone rings!!!!

I've never had a problem... seems like it downloads enough data to begin with to eliminate the problem, and the android phones hae offline maps, soooo... n data connection is even required for me...

I have an iPhone 4 and this maps issue is enough to keep me from upgrading to iOS6 and, for now, has kept me from upgrading to the iPhone 5 (although other factors like lack of availability and delayed ship times did play a role). While I don't use maps very often, when I do use it, accuracy is very, very important.

I think it is unreliable and perhaps dangerous. I used Google Maps until I was directed onto a busy one-way street -- in the wrong direction. I've seen several other maps that are wrong too. Google doesn't know the difference between NE and North. And neither do the people who write the directions.

I only used the maps to look up an address or to find where I am. Apple Maps has worked just fine for me for those purposes.

that happens, so I keep going straight until the map recalculates. No biggie.
