    Evidence in iOS 5 that Apple is Building Its Own Mapping Solution - Mac Rumors

    Click. Read. Return & opine.

    While this sounds good - I'm more interested in what Garmin's buy-out of Navigon is going to do. If Garmin puts optimized routing and custom POI capabilities into the Navigon app I will be pleased.

    If they release something that is truly great, then it'll be a very nice addition because it is something that is distinctively being used a lot more with todays smart phones and apps...but if it's just development for the sake of saying "We have our own", to me, there are things they need to put focus on outside of this...

    But honestly, i'll never be unhappy with new features...

    I don't think it will be in the initial release of iOS 5. While it's still beta 1, to integrate that at this stage would take some more time than what they have (assuming it comes out in September). Maybe 5.2, but not the initial release.

    It would be funnier if they switch to Bing maps and ditch Google completely.

    If they would only bring Google Navigation to iOS I would be completely satisfied with the default map application.

    It was already announced some time ago that Apple is sticking with Google maps for now, so I wouldn't expect an Apple mapping solution until iOS 6 or at least some time next year. Too bad they don't at least update the current Google maps app though! There's no way Google's going to let them use Google Navigation because that's one of Android's killer-app features. I'll stick with Motion-X for now.
