Apple Maps is better than Google Maps - user POV

Used both maps in small screen and large screen mobiles. I feel Apple maps UI is much better and displays the relevant piece of info predominantly and meets its purpose of navigation. Which one do you like? TC 210K

    I wonder anyone would notice if Apple removed its maps app in the next iOS update!!!

      I’d like to see waze gone. Drivers who rely on them take the shit route because waze takes shit route.

    Google Maps. By a wide margin. Isn’t Apple rebuilding Maps from scratch? Anyway, here’s a good read:

      Agreed. The functionality is what keeps me out of speeding tickets.

    UI and UX wise, I prefer Apple Maps, directions are easier to read. However, data wise, seems Google maps is more detailed. If I’m going to a place that doesn’t need absolute last-mile accuracy, then I’ll use Apple Maps.

    I’m a huge Apple fan, but must admit that google maps is far better.

    The stupid smoothing on the position in Apple maps drives me crazy, it catches up after you are already at the intersection. Makes for a slick UI but bad utility. Also Google Maps is much better with traffic by a wide margin.

  • Depends what do you use it for. If for watching, Apple Maps are ok. If you are trying to find a place, get to a place, orient yourself then there is no comparison.

    I agree Apple maps is prettier. Occasionally it out performs Google in certain markets. But Google has better searching BY FAR. Just easier to do what I want to do.
