    Good morning. As expected, I was able to quickly download the new Google Maps app upon waking up this morning unlike prior to going to bed. I'm impressed with the speed in which it downloaded.....less than 5 seconds.
    Got it first thing this morning when I got to work OTA. No problems and looks good so far. Great statement 'D about having choices. I agree.

    it looks like i'll be sticking with the native maps app, never really had an issue with it anyways. Google maps will be a nice backup after a few updates i'm sure

    Try it on an iPad too... Navigon on an iPad is lightyears ahead of Google Maps... the iPhone app with a 2X button to fill the screen... really Google? The iPhone app will be a back-up if something craps out on Navigon or the native Apple Maps for me... at least all the AppleMap haters that were clamoring for this app from Google can all quit complaining about Apple's Maps...

    I like it but the turn-by-turn is too chatty. She told me where to turn waaaayyy to many times.

    I haven't had the opportunity to test it out yet, but I will. Heck, I already have Apple Maps, Waze and my trusty old Garmin Unit in my vehicle so I'm good to go in any case...

    Got the download. I'll probably test it out this evening when the wife and I are heading out of town. We're going to a familiar place so I don't have to worry about getting lost. Of course, this is the Google Maps app and not the Apple Maps app.

    3 out of 10 people used Google maps on their iPhones pre iOS6, but 8 out of 10 people complained about Apple maps post iOS6

    Seriously people, its a mapping app. If you don't like it, use something else.

    OK, Rant done.... Nothing to see here

    I genrally will always switch between either NOW the new Google Maps and either TeleNav or Navigon and Yes of course my cars built in GPS which in a new Honda Accord is rated very high in accuracy so I will compare that to the new Google Maps.

    When i chekced out the app this morning on the "test directions" i put in, once the navigation screen came up i tapped on "start" in the lower right hand corner and the woman started to speak the direction i need to go in. Now, just seeing your post, i just put in another addy and again, after tapping "start" it started to speak my direction to go in.

    I dwld'd the app and didn't change any settings.

    the issue is there is no SPEAKING of street names... just "turn left, turn right"

    you have used the native app (turn by turn) right?

    I just downloaded it and will give it a try this weekend. Doubt this could ever replace my Navigon app, though.

    Question, when you want to add a location to navigate to or from, is there a way to add from your contacts? I haven't seen that option.
