    Hi Guys!!
    Is there a way to make Google Maps my default for GPS? Normally when I want directions, Apple's maps appear. I just prefer Googles. Thanks in advance. Cheers!!

    There isn't a way to change the default apps in iOS. That could change with iOS 9, though I doubt it. If you use Siri, you can ask for directions to a location via Transit. That will bring up third party options, including Google Maps.

    Here's a related guide on how to get Siri to use Google Maps for directions.

    I too, prefer Google Maps. I still have a strong level of distrust for Apple's Maps app.
