Google to the rescue of shameless Apple again :)
Unlike Apple google actually cares about its customers no matter what OS they use!

not entirely true they want to have more customer information, you they are a search company and love to have information on location that way they can provide ads for businesses around you and keep the clients happy knowing that they are getting hits, dont get me wrong I have an android device and I love google navigation but there is always more behind a companies intention, and $$$ is always the case :).

I think it's pretty safe to say, "All Corporations & Governments agencies collect data on you".
So the only true question is this:
Who's going to give us more free stuff for the data they are going to collect on you any ways?.

sniper 1087 i hear ya mate...and its cool. you have an opinion.
But you gotta wonder Big Data is an upcoming industry and all major corporations want data so I dont mind giving it Google than to anyone else. Google is ethical, innovative and unless they have a sinister plan to convert us into mindless zombies using our personal data I dont mind sharing it. They are taking it for customizing our experience on their sites, platforms adn services.
Its like when I enter a fine dine restaurant and everything is laid out the way I want...I am not going to get creeped out rather I would be pleasantly surprised.
Its just a phenomenon called Customer Delight :)

I have Harmon and Tom Tom on IOS and have used google maps on all the droids and galaxy I have had. I like iOS maps and have found it to be a little more accurate than the others. There may be errors but not in my area. The others have been wrong for me many times. Apple is more accurate to the spot.

Just stating my experience. I don't care what you or Tim cook or anyone else thinks. I have used you haven't. I don't think any of them work perfect but it is good that we all have a choice and I do hope you are satisfied with yours. I personally think Aple will start going down hill because they don't have the solid leadership they had. So for your survey I'm booting 2.

Yes, unless you are in Ontario, or really just about anywhere, since Google Maps are just as unreliable.

on the Phonearena main website page, it shows "Google Maps has turned out to be a pretty big disappointment for iOS 6 users," in the snippet.
Pls edit. :)

Really good Google. I hope Google can do a favor to create a Google Maps for iOS too.
