    Default Maps Redirecting?

    I am excited about the new Maps in iOS6 however, I am wondering If I get turned around and go a wrong direction or miss a turn, will the new maps app redirect itself/me?

    Basically I am wondering because with the current Maps app, if I miss a turn or head the wrong direction I have to quickly re-route myself - which can be a huge pain if I am in an area that I am unfamiliar with.

    I'm not a beta tester of iOS6, so I can't say for sure, but to leave a route recalculation feature out of their new app would be horrendously stupid when existing apps do it quite well... Navigon, Garmin StreetPilot to name two that reroute on the fly.

    I couldn't agree more!
    However, I would have thought though that would have been fixed long before that too!
    It's really inconvienent and the biggest downfall I think to the maps app now.

    Wonderful!
    Thank you very much!
    Also, do you know if you have to use Siri? Like can I just use it like I would now if I felt like it and if so will the "steps" move themselves? Because (i'm sure you know) as it is now, if I want Maps to give me step by step directions I have to hit "next" at each turn/merge

    No you don't need to use Siri. As this will be available for the Ip4 which does not have Siri.. You just put in your destination and it will take you there. You don't have to intervene!! Make soure to use with a car charger,as it uses a lot of power.

    P.S It Works pretty much like any stand alone GPS.
