Apple Maps GPS is way better than Google Maps GPS


* It gives you the information you need (turn arrow and distance to the turn) in a high-contrast, large font. With Google Maps, I glance down and I can hardly read the information – it's dangerous.

* The street lines are thicker and contrast strongly against the background (unlike Google Maps, which is white on cream).

* The view is tilted, like a regular GPS, unlike Google Maps, which is straight down.
