Someone get this guy a tiny violin for all the whining... Your big complaint over iOS 6 is transit maps? Really? I'm sorry if this a something you use all the time but to sit here and DEMAND that Apple not release their version of maps till it has ever single feature of the 7 year old Google maps is retarded.
I you want transit maps, then stay on 5.1.1 or get one of the HUNDREDS of transit apps in the store. But b-i-t-c-h-ing about a beta 1 build that is 3-4 months from releases is pointless. Do really think some dumb online petition will make Apple just cancel their mapping plans and keep that s-h-i-t-t-y version of Goofle Maps in? And I totally see Apple going with your idea of keeping BOTH mapping apps...not only would that be super confusing for non-nerds but it is redundant for 99% of the tasks.
I agree with the others, if Google Transit maps are so important to you. Go get some POS Android phone and use it to your hearts content. Which hopefully is less that 4 hours cause that about the extend of Android battery life.

And in reality. I drive so i actually don't need them. i never used maps to begin with. And when i lived in a city where i rode public transportation i knew what trains and buses to take cause i had them memorized so i still didn't need them.
Navigation on the other hand i do use. So you're complaints? Ok. For me they are about things i don't care about.
"What's stopping me from updating to iOS6?" Nothing will.

I've been using Maps pretty extensively since the beta for iOS 6 dropped for routes (both walking and driving) that I know backwards and forwards and I have to say the directions are pretty damn good... and it's only going to get better. Why don't we wait a few months for the official release and not 4 days after the release of the first beta before we throw a hissy fit about Maps?

What is this new trend where people complain about things before they are even released?! I have seen a ludicrous number of b***hing and moaning posts about iOS 6, Apple Maps and the new iPhone. How on earth can you complain about something that hasn't even been formally released yet?!
iOS 6 and Apple Maps are only (suppose) to be available to developers. I can almost guarantee that with the next 2 - 3 betas of iOS 6, Maps will undergo some changes.

Sheesh why have an iphone when yelling does the job perfectly well? Seriously, you can't possibly believe such an absurd notion.
Or maybe it's you've never lived in a city of more than a million people where you don't know every street by heart?

whats stopping me from updating... nothing. You say you wont update because of no transit,satellite,walking.... wow thats petty.
People need to stop ranting and complaining about os6 which has not been fully revealed yet and also stop being cheap. I know that ios is lacking alot of key features and for the ones i really need i walk to walmart BUY an iTunes gift card and spend the money on the right app....

They've handed off directions when lots of us don't actually HAVE the option for 3rd party in our language.
They've decentralized what was working fine before in multiple languages.
They've made it harder for us to do what was easily done before for the SOLE purpose of making sure their rival made less cash.
That's not user-friendly.

It's petty when you are forced to change to something you don't want... you can hold off upgrading as long as possible, but a glitch or a broken iphone means eventually, they'll force you into it. Say hello to Android the second that happens. Apple is screwing over the consumers this time for totally their own benefit. Guess what? Not everyone drives.
And who the HECK needs a claymation building mode?

But Google has promised nothing, they promised an update to Google Earth -- remember, not Maps. If you don't believe me look back to the video.
And Apple has shown no willingness to ease up on its App Store rules in many categories... especially when the express purpose of their own map was to jettison Google. There's NO guarantee they'll allow anything. that's a huge investment to be subject to the whims of a dictatorial company.
ie: the only web browser out there not forced into webkit is not a browser at all... it's a proxy.

You guys complaining this much about beta software that isn't finished or meant for end-users yet is ridiculous. Take a deep breath and relax. Please.

Also, Apple is NOT promoting iOS 6 on their website except to developers. You have to go to this developer page to see the iOS 6 stuff:
Everywhere else on Apple's website, iOS 5 is promoted. I do agree that, for those who know about iOS 6, it's natural to want to check it out early, but doing so comes with the responsibility of NOT complaining when there are bugs or perceived missing features.

Most obvious: Just don't upgrade
Don't really want to miss out on iOS6, just because we want to have all of the other features, the new app store, the way it looks is good. Siri isn't worth the update though. But it's a necessary step to take.
Least likely: Wait for Apple
You could be waiting for years, like how you had to wait FaceTime on cellular. Not an option really.
Wildcard: Jaibreakers Assemble!!
If there's a way to do it, it will be done. Keep the existing Maps app on a Jailbroken iOS6. I'm actually excited about that because then we can happily upgrade to iOS6. For the record, this is a classic example of why we Jailbreak.
Frequently Made Posts
Wow, you can't get to your destination? I can. Work harder!
Excuses. Excuses. We're not having that.
iOS6 is in beta, how can you complain about something that isn't out yet?
We aren't complaining about Apple Maps, per se, we already know that Apple Maps is not as good. It's new, and there will be... sigh YET ANOTHER waiting game.
The notion of replacing the existing app system is already here, and that's what we are not having. Couldn't they just leave Google Maps in there and have the option to switch to Apple Maps? They aren't giving the user what's best for them. This is the kind of action performed by a company in haste.
If you don't like it, get an Android.
No. We aren't going to blindly like whatever Apple does, they are not always right. We love the iPhone, and iOS5 Maps, iOS4 Maps and iOS3 Maps. We're using it now. It will not benefit us to upgrade next Fall, but later when the Maps app has something better to offer.
With Google Maps, you can find ANY business on the globe, it's ever expanding and you can call anywhere, anytime. You can see satellite imagery of actual places. Google Maps is the definition of a good map. Apple has not capitalized on it. They can't.
No other platform can control to the point where it says, you can not have this, take this. And the thing their offering doesn't do the job.

And without releasing Beta software it will never be tested proper. Plus considering this is developer software at the moment, when its officially released to public in the fall (I presume fall atleast) so you never know what will be included by then.
