Uh daknife, you realize Apple is using TomTom maps, not their own 'new' maps?

Having access to the latest builds, I can assure you you will be disappointed if you expect it to be more than a very, very basic navigation system (really not much more than what's available currently in iOS5).

Though 3D mode is something totally awesome, but eye-candy doesn't really help navigation.

That is my understanding about how it works.

Does this happen then I leave Waze, have to go back to TomTom or go to Google maps.


See the last posts in this thread: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=36048 It's all rumor


I was the OP of that thread... I left Waze (after being very active for years) when iOS 6 came out. Apple Maps suck. period. I'm back for a week and these rumors start... Luckily they seem to be untrue. For now.

I'm back. Apple Maps suck, and the new Google Maps just isn't as good as waze. I'm sorry I ever left. Never again.

When routing now, I compare waze to Google Maps on my current iPhone 4. Google Maps almost always routes correctly, yet doesn't consider traffic conditions, as waze does. Problem is, even when I update maps to fix routing problems, there is almost always still routing problems. I'm not moving due to the looks, but solid routing that adjusts for traffic consistently. Waze is not nearly consistent enough for me. Sure, Apple won't allow me to edit roads. However, if they correct in the first place, then they won't need to be edited. I don't have iOS 6 beta right now, so I'll have to check it out on the new phone.
