We say goodbye to the familiar Google Maps and welcome Apple’s own maps application. Although the app at first feel very stiff and slow happens lies the skill and improvement in the details.

Everything looks a bit slicker and sleeker than its predecessor. The satellite images are not equally sharp, the standard map is it against good and clear. The biggest shortcoming is the Street View option that we are used to from Google. This option is not available in the Apple app cards. It is against the possible cities in 3D view, however, the number of towns.

The route guidance is very ‘clean’ only the necessary is displayed on screen. For additional route information you need to tap on the screen, for example, remaining mileage and arrival to see. There are two different display modes: 2D and 3D. The 3D display is automatically adjusted to 2D at the intersections, turns and such. This for a better overview. With a simple pinch or spread motion you can zoom in and out on the map during the route.

The entire route is immediately loaded and stored locally, so you have no data connection during the ride. During navigation it is possible to use other applications (for example, the music app) via a message strip you will be kept informed of the traffic instructions. In addition, it is also possible to use the application in sleep mode. Screen you can access via the route is always ready reference when you take action, the screen will automatically light up.

One of the biggest advantages is that you always get the latest maps available to you and of course anywhere in the world can be found easily in the application. When you are abroad you may switch to the playback Miles.

Unfortunately, the maps application some downsides, so you cannot see actual speed indication and there is no possible chance to be warned (more…)
