Thanks for perspective. Am a a big fan. This is the biggest failure in all my history, in terms of my needs. First time I have have been disappointed and p*****ed off. Doesn't detract from my overall support. But I do need to express my disappointment. This is political and economical and not in keeping with best user experience. I may even activate my week old iP5 tomorrow as an act of appeasement. (What the heck, I still have Google Maps on my iP4s!)Not trying to offend you Lon, I am making a general statement when I come across various threads about people getting OCD about every little issue, I haven't needed maps yet so for me it isn't an issue yet. I am a fan of conviction and follow through to make a stand when someone isn't happy about a product whether it be a product or service. I am also not a fan of bs advertising like the link that I posted where other companies are trying to capitalize on a company's flaws by putting out bs. The article clearly states iOS maps isn't perfect and has it's flaws so you don't have to purposely put out bs to show their product is better.
