The new Apple maps app is surprisingly much more accurate for the area in Croatia where I live than the Google app was/is. I am happy with the new app, and I can always use Google maps in my browser if I ever feel the need, so I am happy with the upgrade overall.
I refuse to move to Croatia merely to be sure where I am! Most of the time, I can figure it out from my surroundings.

But now, of course, with iMaps, I can be somewhere else without actually going there. So I don't have to move to Croatia to be there. Which leads me to the important question - where's my Slivovitz?

Developers: Apple ignored our warnings about iOS 6 Maps

Apparently apple knew the maps situation well in advance but didn't address the problems.

Quote:
The public backlash over iOS 6 Maps continues: developers are coming out of the woodwork claiming they warned Apple about quality issues before launch. A new report at CNET highlights stories from six third-party developers who say they tried to tell Apple about bugs in Maps, only to find themselves ignored. The statements echo the grumblings from other developers about Maps, in addition to what several Apple engineers told Ars last week as part of our feature on Apple's internal culture.

The developers speaking to CNET asked not to be named because they have apps in the App Store, some of which rely on Apple's MapKit framework for their own products. They tell stories of woe about filing bug reports in Apple's Radar system, making posts in the company's private developer forums, and even e-mailing Apple engineers directly about their concerns. One source claims an Apple employee told him the issue was "well understood."

Apparently, Apples maps of Taiwan are too accurate; the maps shows top secret military installations in high resolution. Google maps obfuscated these parts of the maps, but Apple reveals these details in all its glory

I'm sure China already knew about it and where it was located.

Certainly, but access to those satellite images is highly restricted, whereas apple's maps, not so much.

iMaps gives you your own handheld Navigator who can FOLD SPACE. Travel without moving.

I just used the new map app yesterday for the first time. I don't see much change compared with the previous one. It didn't lose me and the map seemed accurate enough (suburb of Paris, France). The app itself is useful but not great, which was also my assessment of the previous one. For the use I make of it, not much has changed.
