I have been holding off on accepting the upgrade to ios6 because of what I hear about the probs with Maps

what is the community consensus on this?

    It's highly unlikly that you'll get anything resembling an consensus here since it depends on the part of the world one wishes maps for and what one's specific needs are. Maps works fine for me, but your mileage may vary. Google's maps aren't always accurate either, but they've been working on them longer so there are fewer inaccuracies.

     

    I'd suggest you find someone who has iOS 6 and try Maps out for yourself and see if it appears to meet your requirements. If not, there are a number of alternatives available for iOS 6, including just using Google's Maps web site.

     

    Regards.

    Plenty here for you to judge the consensus....

    If you beleve any sort of consensus will come out of all the gab, then you're either highly optimistic or don't really understand what the word means.

     

    In any case, it's now moot, since Google's own Maps app is now available in the iTunes Store. People can now have both apps and use whichever suits them best.
