  • joewillgo
    I prefer Google Maps. Which is why I hate Apple Maps so very much and why I even hate Apple Car play with all of my guts. Because Google Maps doesn't work!!!! WTF APPLE?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!

  • 7ICHA7D
    It heavily depends on your location. For my city, Yandex Maps work the best.
  • AKzebraMiner
    What about now? Lots have changed since then, I want a new comparison, not outdated stuff!
  • tallll70
    One thing Google Maps should freaking learn...I can't see hardly anything with light beige background and white roads. I don't get it...ADD background color options, i remember old Microsoft maps had this feature decades ago.

    Yelp is such a waste of time. Zagat is where its at. I don't need reviews from retards who ate at olive garden.
    Just replaced apple maps with google maps on my iPhone
  • alcaponed16
    Apple Maps got my mom lost while trying to rescue me from a breakdown, so fuck it.
  • Stathis Flangofas

  • Sayeddin M
    Waze is da best...

  • Usman Ayub
    Trust me guyz Apple Maps are useless I have had experience from both,Google Maps are far much better
  • Ryan Bliss
    Yeah, I like Apple maps more because of the buttery smooth animations and Siri integration and all that... I live in Missouri so I don't really need to worry about transit or anything like that.
  • Joey Zuraski
    Apple is slacking off on higher integration with Apple maps. Doesn't use waze data on their terms of service. So that's a lie. Half the roads where I am are closed for construction at any given time but doesn't reroute to avoid them. It tells me to drive through barriers. It's missing "be in the second lane" google maps has which is vital to avoid collisions. Areas like fork splits ain't mentioned in Apple maps. And they lack going outside of their metropolitan cities for improvements.

    I have an iPhone 6S, and I still prefer Google Maps.
  • Nicolas
    Sorry guys but Apple no hate please guys
    Google does it better.... always.
  • William Goldstein

  • Crash & Burn
    I don't understand why anyone would want to invest in apple
  • Eu Gen
    Yeah Google Maps is ways better... Aplle maps is only there because it has to be that the android devices dont have a monopol .... so it is with Siri ..... the Shitty S-Voice is only there because Apple has one too... but its not competitive to Siri
  • Omar Morales Luna
    Google is way too nice. They should make all google apps and products available only on Android. Let iOS users realize their high horse is really a Donkey.
  • Balázs Nagymihály
    "Apple Maps directs me to use Google Maps" - it tells us everything :D
  • Matt Dargis
    Apple maps is funny.
  • Michael Marsh

  • Shad Kerr
    Google maps
  • venetsanos9
    HERE maps.offline access!
  • Hunter Rodrigez
    i use Here maps... made by nokia... i think 

    its like the only really useful and reliable navigation and map app i could find,that doesn't need an internet connection to work, works for walking, transit, biking and driving 

    i mean yeah you can also save maps in google but its fucking fiddly and the map seize is restricted... in "here" you just download entire countries
  • Ayush Pandey
    HERE Maps is what I use and used! I loved it on my Lumia and still love it on my Lumia ;)
  • AwesoMarron
    Apple Maps directing you to Google Maps... that was priceless XD
  • Ken Cheng
    earlier this year, I spent over 2 weeks in the city of Taichung, Taiwan, and the Google maps' transit information worked flawlessly.  Everything worked great, down to the bus number and even alternative routes.  Street view is super handy because it lets you see beforehand what the building is suppose to look like.   Locally here in Vancouver, I use street view when I need to plan a trip somewhere where I know free parking is super limited... so I'll look ahead of time and search for the free spots
  • Ichigo Uzumaki
    Nice comparison....lmao...when Apple Maps directs you to Google Maps to get to the place he wants to go...
  • You Tube
    Yandex Maps-Nav is best now...
  • bloozism

  • David Munoz
    Google Maps is better. In other news, Water is Wet.
  • Carl Daniel
    Apple is such a joke to think it can go against Google Maps. Apple Maps is garbage, will never compare to Google Maps. Ever.
  • schoolboy
