Well, because I don't know the entire city, and I'm not trying to learn the entire city. I go to one place, which might be a place that I frequently go or don't frequently go.
For example, if I wanted to go from the Aquarium to the Museum, and stop at a place to eat in between. Am I really going to spend time searching up the routes and asking for directions and where the nearest pick up is?
Or am I just going to ask Siri and go straight there?
And plus, you might know your part of the city, but realistically how much would that be, 0.1% ?
I don't stay in the same city for long either, I have other states to travel to. But I don't have the time nor the inclination to explain myself to you.

In other words, #FAIL.

Uh huh, regions have been discontinued before. Austrailia, Germany and others, it had been continued in some as well. But no one is going to listen to them when they start complaining about not having these technologies in those countries. It's really beyond the scope of this discussion, which, you're right, isn't that big of an issue yet. Some countries don't allow you to have Google, or technology at all.
Could it change in the final product? That should be interesting.

It's a simple thing for me. you can call me a lazy stupid moron who relies on my phone like a suck titty baby needing directions even to my own bathroom, if you want.
but I'm a paying customer. My phone WILL meet my needs, or I'll switch to another phone that will.
Its as simple as that. I used to get lost all the time and thanks to my iphone and google maps, I can get anywhere, no longer needing other peoples help.
If my iPhone stops delivering this useful feature to me, its gonna get kicked to the curb in a new york minute. if everything turns out fine, google for instance gets their own map in the app store and it works seamlessly with apples new map APIs, then all will be well, and I'll be happy.
because other than this one issue, I got no real problems with apples new update.

then when I'm on the bus I can watch the blue location dot to tell me where I am so I can see when I'm nearing my stop. (remember I'm visually impaired, so I can't see street signs, I'm also hearing impaired and can't understand the bus drivers, between all the noise, the crappy PA system, and their thick foreign accents)
So the app in the above review, fails to meet my needs.

There's no telling how good the next iPhone will be, obviously I will just HAVE to get over it.
But I always have in my mind, as an advocate, that we need more unified tracking of transport, a one stop shop. And I mean tracking of public transport like ships, subways, planes, trains, and buses.
Apple made it, now perfect it.
