Is this do-able?  If so, how?

    Google it and remember you are on your own when you do so, it is not supported by Apple.

    The Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico, Spanish is my native tongue. I do not speak English very well, however, I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture perhaps very very different from your own. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.


    No, there are no Apple supported regressions.

    There is no support for downgrading.

    Ok, let me see if I understand. You are all mincing words.


    The answer is NO to my question unless I do something Apple doesn't like or approve to my device?

  • Dah•veed Level 7 (33,655 points)

    Something horrible, stupid and nasty, that we can't speak of here!

    I honestly don't care if apple do not support this, I like to have a phone that works.

  • deggie Level 9 (52,667 points)

    Then use Google and go for it.

    What I really liked about the old map app, was that it worked together with my addressbook.

    Do you understand ?

    Now I have to copy and paste the addresses into the google app.

    Why make an update when it's not working. Then take it off again. Suck it up and realize that Google is just better at doing maps then Apple. Simple as that.

  • deggie Level 9 (52,667 points)

    Why are you trying to justify your decision with me? I don't care why you want to do it.


    You do realize that in order to have an agreement it takes two sides to agree, right? Why should Google renew their contract with Apple for Google maps within the OS? MacWorld is reporting that Google is finishing an app that will l be available in the App Store sometime in the future. It will have ads which is how Google makes their money, along with selling the information about the searches you do, and will increase their ad base by about 400 million. A sure win for them.

    As long as it works, I dont care. Perhaps Apple should had made sure that googlemaps would work. and not send out something that is not even half way done.

    Is this a microsoft update ??

  • deggie Level 9 (52,667 points)

    They could not have done that without signing a new contract with Google, and I just pointed out to you that two sides are needed. If you wait you will have Google Maps but as a download from the App Store.


    I don't have a problem with the new app at all. The geobase that it uses needs work but I am sure that is coming. I've spent at least 4 years reporting various problems with the Google Maps database.

    I has been reading a bit around here and this is very interesting read.



    It shows just what has gone wrong for our Apple people.


    Google Maps announces a 400 year advantage over Apple Maps.


    I do think they are more then right



    Is there anyway I can setup Addressbook and Google maps to work together as it did before. ?

  • Dah•veed Level 7 (33,655 points)

    So you don't actually read anything, you just ignorantly throw mierda against the wall to see what sticks!

    Google Maps announces a 400 year advantage over Apple Maps.

    First off, Google didn't announce anything, the author made that up.



    I had a great laugh yesterday on this same topic. I was being interviewed for a national radio program in Australia on the topic of Apple Maps and the host asked me what did I really mean by the use of “400 years” and then added that there had been a lot of discussion there about what I had really meant. I was embarrassed, as I had to tell him that “400 years” had no real significance, while admitting that I was being “cheeky” and only meant to infer that this would not be a quick fix.

  • justjesper Level 1 (30 points)

    Well it looks like Google has 400 years of advantage
