Re: Does the GPS/google maps work as it should?
I was just driving around Newark and Google Maps on a Droid Maxx embarrassed Apple Maps. I'm not even sure where Apple Maps was trying to send me, but half the streets they were telling us to turn on either weren't there anymore, or weren't the same name. It was extremely confusing. Google Maps had no issues. Google Maps on iOS should be just as superior.
Doesn't Nokia have Here Maps on iOS with offline maps, now? Last time I tried it, it was really good (but that was on Android).
Does Google Maps on iOS require a Google Account to use (too lazy to install and find out, I have a backup M8 that I use it on so never had a need to install it on my iPhone)?
I don't care that much, because I don't use navigation often anyways. I just fired it up because the other person was being slow on his phone and managed to get his up and running a few seconds after I set mine, so I decided to see if the routes would have differed. I still think Apple Maps sounds better and gives directions at better times (with fewer redundant directions in between, but some people may actually prefer the way Google "keeps tabs" on things).
