Maps: Google or Apple?

I prefer Apple because of their great 3D support for the United States. Google maps is better if you need streetview

I used to use Google Maps exclusively because of the stock Maps debacle but have since moved back to primarily using Apple Maps. It has been improved a lot since the release of iOS 7. I will sometimes use Waze bc it's fun ... or when I want real time traffic info. But overall, Apple Maps is the way I go now. It's nicely integrated into the other stock apps so more convenient.

Google Maps and this is ONLY because Google has an avoiding tolls option. That's a deal breaker for me.....sadly.

I've never had an issue with Apple Maps. I used to use Google Maps and may still use it from time to time, but Apple Maps is just dandy for me also!!!!

I try to use Apple Maps, but it still gets me lost at least one out of every three times I use it... and even when it does get me where I am going, it is often not the most efficient route.

One example: I was in a nearby town and wanted to stop at a market for some groceries before heading home. Apple Maps got me to the store, but as I approached, Maps said to go straight, past the shopping complex, wait at the light, make a U-turn, then head back to the complex and enter on my right. Instead, I made a left about half a block before the U-turn, and entered the same shopping complex immediately. It's not a big deal, but that sort of thing happens often. It's just those sort of little inefficiencies that irk me and really show that Apple Maps still needs a decent amount of polishing.

I've had a few issues with Apple maps lately so I have been using google more and more. I have a second job delivering Pizza's Friday and Saturday nights and google maps seems to work better for the most part. Although it is usually wrong on how long it'll take to arrive at the destination.
