Apple Maps

I would like to know if anyone can tell me where I can look to read about the latest progress Apple is making in getting their mapping and navigation issues resolved. I have not heard anything much recently in the media since the initial release of the iPhone 5 and the chatter generated by the bugs in that app.

Thanks!

B33,

Thanks for your reply and helpful links. I had missed the article on cnet when I perused their site. I did not get the impression that accessing Google Maps via Siri gives turn by turn voice navigation...did you?

I don't think so. Mapquest the app is good. Don't know if it can be used on iOS 6. It has turn by turn .

Wildman what do you think about Tom Tom when it gets here i heard some like some Don't) i'v  been looking on the P.S. to see if Carrier Billing has been added yet but as of 12:00 noon yesterday it wasn't on there Yet.. I'll have to look at the Video you posted, but i have to shift over to Y.T. it says Embedding disabled by Request...

Tom Tom has always been a nice reliable GPS but never used it on Apple so cant say....   Now as for video error for you is because it would require flash and if I remember your device doesn't support flash.

Correction, I just went to play video on desktop and got same error, wonder if Verizon restricted this feature?

I have flash on my S3 and desktop and video still has bugs but I posted other videos recently and they work fine so this might just be a bug..
