Google maps or apple maps?

Postby Drassen » 14 Dec 2012, 11:40

The possibility has come to use google maps in iphone via their new API.

There are downsides and the are upsides with changing the maps in turf. So we need to hear your experiences and standpoints in this issue.

Apple maps will get better, but today there seems to be some issues.(?)

Can you list the pros and cons?
I'm on iOS 5.1.1 an I have Google maps. Is Apple's maps used in v6 or is it controlled by Turf?

Apple changed when they launched iOS 6
And even apple tell the users to use Google maps since they have to much problem with their own maps.
So i say stick to Google ;)

They will get better, but i don´t think they will be as good as Google.

I think you should use Google maps since Apple's maps is very bad actually. I'm turfing in black and white and some of the zones seems to be a bit off the map.
