iOS6 Maps isn’t Google Maps

8 years of work at Google has resulted in a very polished product – this article provides some great insight into what went into the Google Maps product – http://techcrunch.com/2012/09/23/heres-what-goes-into-making-google-maps-will-apple-be-able-to-recalculate

iOS Maps on the other hand is a disaster.

It is a wasteland when it comes to points of interest and knowing about places – it is effectively worthless for finding locations unless you know the address.  I tried the iOS Maps turn-by-turn feature today for a trip to Quebec… it was terrible – it looks like I will continue to stick with my Garmin for driving directions.
