iPhone only returns 10 results, while maps.google.com interestingly returns the SAME 10 results on their FIRST PAGE of results. On maps.google.com if you click through the pages you get more results. This kind of sucks. Theres no way to get more results on the iPhone is there?

I have noticed the same thing. I searched for Chinese Food in my town, only to be cheated out of the three most popular dives. The pinpoints all hit the ones that nobody would be caught dead (or dying) in. Makes me wonder how good the Maps application is and whether the Google folks created some filter to pare down the results for iPhone requests.

Oh... I forgot to add that regular Google Maps has those three Chinese food places on the web when you go through a PC.

Yeah it worries me to think that the new feature of being able to customize your route won't get upgraded on the iPhone eventually.

I was REALLY looking forward to that feature being on my iPhone. I love the turn by turn directions, but Google maps quite often doesn't map the route correctly, especially on the phone.

I wonder how well an online mashup would work on the iPhone safari browser. Hmm...

When i try to get driving directions from my gf's house it puts her address in youngstown,oh instead of where it should be in brunswick, oh. It definitely has bugs i guess.
