I can see the next Samsung Ad
The man stops at the edge of a cliff as his turn by turn navigation Siri tells him to proceed in 50m to turn left. In the car it is him, his wife and a teenage girl. Then the passing buy car stops to inspect. Then realise that the onwer of the other car looks lost.
Man1 : Hi sir, are you okay?
man2 : Not really, I think I'm lost
man 1: lost? "looking perplexed", okay, where were you going?
man2 : ahmmm, to...
man1 ; "interrupting man 2", cool, I'll type in your address on my galaxy S3 on google maps and i'll direct you to your destination"
man1 : "takes off his phone" so what is your destination?
man2 : "telling man1 the destination"
man2 : "whispering" where did you buy that phone"
man1 : "not sure what man2 said" what?
man2 : " looks at his wife who is busy typing something on her iPhone 5, then looks at his daughter flicking on an iPad" I want to buy that phone "whispering so the wife will not hear him asking about the galaxy s3"

Talk about old-fashioned techniques an marauder's map could come in handy.

I think the circle stand for Tube (they call their subway tube for some reason) + underground, so makes sense for them.

also so you know apple maps shows 280 because its close to cupertino if you look with the closest structure next to cupertino you will find a bridge you cant turn left from the bridge

Apple should give a scanned copies of these paper maps on their iDevices ... better than their rotten cr@p which they are calling Apple Maps.

LOL, i'm a fan of Apple(Also a proud owner of Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 which I'm lovin it, looking forward to getting me some Note II), but would love to see Samsung making fun of Apple Maps. with something like ifan being lost in the city and the other one by the edge of a cliff with a car, looking all perplexed, then a Samsung Galaxy S3 user comes along and show them directions. That will be epic.

Haha, Classic Brits. One the few sensible countries which don't fall for false advertising and patent hypocrisy. Remember, they even threw out Apple's case against Galaxy Tab, asking Apple to apologize and now this. USA can learn a thing or two.

Hahahahahahaha....... It was really very funny............. :)
But I think new Maps from Apple will be very useful for all the Husband, and workers; Because now they can blame the maps on ios 6, for being late to home or work........... :)

actually they can still use nokia maps with turn-by-turn navigation via m.maps.nokia.com nokia knows that they are really superior in mapping solution..
but hope that apple will solve this stupid problem soon and i mean now!!!
