    I actually just did a search and it said you can. It started with IOS 6. I also tried it offline while driving around DC and it worked.
    I just shut data and wifi off and it didn't work for either.

    Which is your Map of choice:  Google or Apple?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1414031800.703306.jpg

    I am going to have to concede this one because I am working from what the apple store guy told me. He said it is preloaded or something, but I dont know for sure. I am assuming it will need to be connected for search options.

    Haven't tested apple's maps too much, because of the initial disappointment. So Google maps is my preferred choice for sure. Undoubtedly Apple will improve with time.

    It would be cool if someone did an in-depth test on which mapping service actually used more data. Would probably be very handy information for those on limited data plans.

    I use Apple, if it can't find what I want then I fall back on Google.

    Apple's maps still has my apartment complex in the wrong location. For that reason I use Google Maps.

    I use Google. Honestly I wouldn't even try Apple maps because Google Maps does what I need them to do and I am comfortable using it. Apples vector base is smart and really cool (I work in a vector based program every day) vector files are very very small. You are still using data with Apple Maps, but it is minuscule compared to how Google rasterizes their maps. more data, but slightly more accurate is my understanding.

    Apple Maps=Adobe Illustrator
    Google Maps=Adobe Photoshop

    I've been using Apple Maps on my iPhones. However, now that I've got my Note 4 I will try Google Maps on it.

    Apple usually. Google, if Apple Maps doesn't turn up a good search. And then usually navigon if it's a long road trip.

    I didn't know about the Apple Maps uses no data part. I assumed it did along with google maps.

    Apple maps still sucks for searches. Type in like "chicken" or "Toyota" and it'll pull up Toyota, Japan. I rarely searches locally. I use Google maps for searches.

    I've noticed Apple Maps does not give me the best directions to some locations and at times fails to properly find some addresses. One day it told me my dentists office was in the middle of I-287, when it was 2 blocks up. Google Maps is more accurate and gives better directions for me. Heading to my girlfriends, Apple Maps wants me to go through town whereas Google Maps sends me through the highway and saves me lots more time. So while I do give Apple Maps a chance here and there, Google Maps is my go-to for directions.

    I do however enjoy how Apple Maps shows me my directions on the lock screen. Very useful...

    Buy an app that loads map data to the device so the only data needed is for online searches via the app... Navigon is one of those.

    I've been trying to use Apple Maps more and ween myself off Google, but AM doesn't show biking/walking routes like GM does, so we'll see how long I can tolerate that.

    Google Maps and this is ONLY because Google has an avoiding tolls option. That's a deal breaker for me.....sadly.
    This is the only reason I still use Google Maps as well. I was driving from Cleveland to somewhere I forgotoh yeah it was Elyria. Apple Maps wanted me to take a toll route. Google Maps got me there without even riding past a toll and almost seven minutes quicker.

    I use Google maps and have for years. Best feature is that it re-routes me if traffic is bad.

    Google has been perfecting its maps for years. Apple not so much. Does Apple even have street view cars traveling around the world? I saw lately that Google put a street view camera on the back of a camel and set it out walking the Sahara Desert. Does Apple do that? Not knocking Apple, love their products ...but really, Google maps are far and away better than Apples

    Before when Apple maps led me around the block, I used Google but Apple maps have been really great lately. I just say where I want to go and Apple maps takes me.
