.tek: #Apple Maps #App Vs #Google #Maps for IOS: You Both Still Suck! #tech

the-man-in-the-mazeI downloaded and tested the new Google Maps for IOS against Apple’s own Maps app and, guess what?  (Ironic fanfare etc…), they both still suck.  Mightily.  Of course, presumably unlike my richer and fatter (metaphorically speaking guys- don’t get your orthopedic corsets all twisted up) tech writers based in New York and London (you know who you are), I currently live in Mauritius where the satellite data may be more sparse.  On the other hand, mobile telephone reception is better than at my previous address near Gatwick Airport in the UK.  The point is, if you don’t live in some major urban metropolis or site of “strategic” interest, a combination of GPS satellite, cellphone tower and WiFi hotspot triangulation still might not be enough to get you to your destination.  Hmmm… seems like the basis for another TechieTalk article.
