    Wondering if only my Maps application under iOS 10 is not working or if it's because of my location as all the directions are not available. What we heard is that it has been enhanced but it looks to worsened!!!i believe it is better for Apple if the remove and replace it with other third party application.

    You can do that yourself; Maps is removable.

    It's not useless, it's just not as accurate or detailed as Google Maps. Google has had a lot more time to get it right. Apple does allow you to use Google Maps as an alternate navigation app.

    You don’t have to use it if it’s not complete or not fit for duty in your neck of the woods. Simply delete (actually, it only hides it) the Apple Maps app and try Google’s. Like Europa said, they’ve been around longer and have had more time to perfect it.

    I’m perfectly satisfied with Apple’s Maps app for my needs here in Miami, FL.

    Yeah, you'll be much better off deleting it and using the Google Maps app.

    I've been using Apple Maps without any problems in my local area (Chicagoland) and while on driving trips to Albuquerque, Nashville and central Texas. I do however supplement the Maps info with info about upcoming rest stop locations (RestArea) and services available at upcoming exits (Road Ahead). As far as directions via Apple Maps I've had no problems using it.
