    I'm gonna reboot my device but just to be clear as soon as you hit the start button instant voice navigation?

    Yes it should. That's when it started the voice speaking for me.

    Street view, traffic, and all of the POS are definitely a plus on Google maps but I prefer the Apple maps graphics and lock screen navigation. Hell, the few times Ive used Apple maps it has worked perfectly. I will definitely use Google maps as a backup if needed.

    I like that Siri tries to pronounce street names. She's pretty good with it although there are definitely street names with non standard pronunciation that she gets wrong. But then again if you weren't a local you'd get it wrong too.

    Using the Aussie Karen voice on my Garmin Nuvi, I've encountered several humorous errors in pronunciations and interpretations in text to speech - one for a road called "George M. Mills Civic Parkway" came out "Goerge the 1000th Mills"...

    Yes I did exactly the same thing including going home tonight from work and it gave me spoken navigation right to my front door and it matched perfectly with my built in Nav. system I have in my Honda Accord.

    Default Google Maps for IOS releasing tonight?

    I overall like it a lot, not bad at all for their first release, a few points :

    There is no way to save locations or bookmarks unless you sign in with your google account.
    No way to edit saved locations or change their names, this could be a problem if you have a lot of places saved since all you see is addresses ( unless you save a place google recognizes, like a restaurant or mall, etc ).
    There should be a way to lock the map in the " north up " position, it's really sensitive when zooming in and i keep rotating it.
    No access to " recents" places or routes, if you looked for something an hour ago it will be gone when you move on, unless you save it.
