Sooooo if Google Maps is King then why does the headline give the impression that Apple Maps is?

The combined efforts by Amazon, Meta and Microsoft would be bring competition to Google Maps unless the author is conceding that Google Maps is unbeatable.

I don’t see any need for yet another map app. What I would like is a simple one ! which I can guarantee the consortium map won’t be.
The option to turn everything off apart from navigation instructions, would be great.

“The trio will join forces with former sat nav heavyweight TomTom to give others the tools needed to build their own map and navigation apps.”

Interesting. When I open Apple Maps, I see this:

So the big winner here is TomTom?

Only if consumers start using the app.

Uber also uses Tom tom for their Uber driving app.
