    That's what Apple did before Apple Maps. Apple would rather have it's own mapping solution than pay another company. Apple Maps have come a long way since starting up and will continue to get better. Google maps went through the same stages when it first started as well so it isn't fair to compare a mature Google maps to a still developing Apple Maps.

    Plus I am more comfortable with Apple having access to personal data than Google. I removed Google Maps, Google Earth, Waze etc. and now have YouTube as my only Alphabet app.

    Apple is using a Subaru XV to Create Apple Maps in Brisbane, Australia

    I was driving into Brisbane City (Australia) today when a White Subaru with a tall post on the roof came in from the left-hand side on the western freeway. This is Apple's new Mapping vehicles for updating Apple Maps I have posted a short video taken from my Dod Dash Cam. On the top of the post, there is a high-speed spinning camera below that are several cameras pointing a full 360
    I realize the white car is in front of the black vehicle but at the start, you can clearly see the camera pod. The article below explains more.
