    Apple has apologised for the poor maps in iOS 6 and said what their solution to the problem is; download an alternative map app. That shows that they're not bringing back Google Maps.

     

    I'm as annoyed as you, because the new maps are abysmal in my area, but we just have to suck it up. complaining isn't going to get us anywhere. Apple has never added flash after all these years of customers complaining. They do things their own way.

     

    Either wait for Apple Maps to improve, find an alternative (you can add maps.google.com as a web clip to the home screen) or vote with your wallet and get another device.

    Ifindview... Sorry but that does not exist in the App Store. I'm talking about the appstore available in Belgium...

    Maybe somewhere else ?

    Agree with you Luc le Belge.

    The google maps 'app' is merely a pointer to the mobile web app. This and other 3rd party applications do not have street view , public transit information and nor importantly is it integrated with Calendar, Contacts or iCloud.

     

    We are a small business that relied heavily on the Maps App and it's integration to contacts and calendar especially using iCloud

    That reliance changed overnight on the 'iOS upgrade' is to iOS 6.

    Our business has effectively come to a halt since because the Map accuracy and data are so dire.

    We're having to work on emergency solutions using an Android platform to try and salvage what we can from the mess.

    This change threatens to put us out of business, and is costing us money every day.

    I just noticed my apple maps show construction in my area, so I can avoid it. Thank you apple, google never done that.

    I see how fans are some users...

    Apple get a big step backward, appologize and...

    That's all ? ? ?

    Some users are so fan that they agree to be f---ed. Sorry, not me !

    I'm sure sir Jobs wouldn't accepted that!

    When I bought my device, such a behavior was not in the deal!

    I paid for something and now all change and... Just appologizes ?

     

    I don't car about appologize.

    And i don't agree with those which say... Change your device.

    I want a real solution. Not a workaround

     

    And long life to the friendly flock of sheep...

    you're wrong when you say that it's not possible to roll back!

    you seem to forget the lasy US election :-). YES WE CAN

     

    Just to search on the web. Of course not on Apple site...

    I was so stupid to try to find here a real solution opposite with the way Apple want us to follow...

     

    if you have same problem just try...  Yes you can!

    Everything is possible, but

    1. Can't be discussed on that site according to TOS

    2. You just lost your ability to cry "Wolf"

  • luc_le_belge Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Keep your secret secret!

    Better to keep people in the ignorance and even if they are really disappointed and you to stay satisfied with appologizes.

    No wolf !

    Solution driven.

    You're welcome when you have one! A real one!

    Keeping the original deal : I bought my IPad with an app in the Os which correspond to my needs, expectation!

     

    Here apple changed the original deal!

     

    And I hope they won't be satisfied with appologises.

     

    Long live to sheeps

    The only way that is possible wouldn't help you now that you already updated. That other method would require certain files to be saved and custom firmware created prior to updating so he is just protecting the sheep from harming their phones.

     

    For more information, try researching at places like idownloadblog.com, imore.com and other apple user sites that don't have the same limitations

    This is my 4th Iphone and I was a big fan of maps. With the new upgrade the quality of the new map app is very disappointing. Steve Jobs would have never released it.....but I think that now at Apple money counts more than quality and customer satisfaction!!! I hope they will fix it soon otherwise the solution will be getting a different OS....there are so many out with same features and at this point something more!!! Iphone 5 is not the "best" phone out there any more!!!!

    Yes please give us back Google map. I'm in Vietnam and the map on my new iPad 4 doesn't work around, it doesn't show locations or directions even to big cities and provinces! So funny, I cannot use my iPad ti find the way.
