    They don't have all the images, etc. needed for 3D flyover everywhere. I doubt they'll ever do it in my locale of rural Iowa...

    Okay another question about maps. What's with the turn by turn directions? I wanted to test it out so I click the nav button in the top and put in my address.

    It gave me better turn by turn than my google maps, but it is nothing like a standalone turn by turn app. For one, it didn't speak the directions to me, for two it looked just like plain google maps (a dot on the road) Is the new look/full features for turn by turn just for the new iPhone?! I'm on the 4. If so, I will just stick with Waze.

    It (flyover) looks cool downtown, but not on my street. I'm really gonna miss Street View. This 3D stuff is not that useful.

    Also, what's up with traffic? All I see are a few little dotted red lines scattered around the Bay Area. I know there's more traffic than that! Where's the green, orange and red freeways? I'll check back in a couple hours, during rush hour. Silicon Valley's usually red all over.

    Asking for transit directions just shows apps available in the App Store. It does not show you where to walk to catch the bus, which one goes to the train station, where to transfer, etc. Nor does it tell you how long it's all gonna take.

    At least Google Maps works as a web app, but I can't get Street View for some reason.

    Waze is great. I think you need Siri for speaking.

    If Waze/TomTom/Garmin etc. can have a voice tell me to "turn right" etc. why couldn't Apple include that in their maps app?! Granted, I know reading the reviews that they are biting off way more than they can chew with this... but seriously?

    As for the transit, yeah apple doesn't do the transit directions yet so that is why they are referring to the 3rd party apps

    Apple included voice turn by turn navigation with the 4S and 5. Nothing below those devices.

    It does speak during navigation. Have you tried it? It works on my 4S

    Thanks J, that's what I was afraid of. I'm going to upgrade to the 5 once I get the cash to do so. Guess I will just stick with Waze in the meanwhile.

    Maps looks great and even though a bit slower than old google , it still rocks.
    I do miss StreetView and hope Google releases a standalone map application

    Anyone found a way to have the new maps app follow your location? I was hoping it would have the turn-by-turn look/feel without having a final destination entered to see what streets, landmarks, traffic, etc. were ahead of you on the road.

    You just hit the location arrow button in the bottom left corner Until it changed to tracking mode

    I thought that might be it, but is it possible to change to orientation of the map (north always up vs. looking straight ahead)? Also, I can't seem to keep it from timing out. Should the screen stay lit as long as the map is moving?

    False...


    From the footnote on the Apple iOS6 Maps page...

    "Turn-by-turn navigation is available only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPad 2 or later with cellular data capability. Flyover is available only on iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2 or later, and iPod touch (5th generation). Cellular data charges may apply."

    Last time i checked, iPad 2 did not have Siri. Also, I have an iPad 3 Wifi model (with Siri now), and I do NOT have Turn by Turn (because it is NOT a cellular model)

    yeah me too. It's not finding me as accurately as google maps was. Which is strange as i'd expect it to use the same gps info. Wouldn't it? Regardless google maps founds the exact spot in my complex and the address is correct. apple's maps thinks i'm one block over (different street, lol) and in the wrong building. So it has the blue dot on the correct street but the wrong building. And it lists my current location as the wrong street and wrong address obviously. weird.

    i'm anxious to try the navigation tomorrow but looking at all the images it doesn't look zoomed in and at street level like my stand alone garmin or waz apps or other gps. So right now i'm gonna test it but i'm thinking unless it gets up to the standard or waz i'm gonna keep using my 6 year old garmin in my car. And i really hope google releases google nav and a google maps app
