    I used it today for the first time. The UI seems smoother. What do you think?

    Tried it yesterday, and was as unimpressed as I was when it was first released. I intended to write a scathing review on the app.

    However, I found later that I had the options set to avoid tolls and highways so, having fixed that, I'll give it another try before I write anything about it.

    I'm going to take a lot of convincing to dump Google Maps which I use just about every day.

    I would prefer to use the Apple app, so I'm hoping that it works at least as well as Google. I'm a trucker, so I'm in a position to be able to give it a serious workout.

    Google Maps copes quite well with off-road locations. Next time I hit one, I'll set up the route on Apple Maps and see how it compares.

    I used to use my iPad and MotionX GPS HD when I was driving exclusively off-road.

    I did a direct comparison between google maps on iPhone VS. Garmin gps all over Massachusetts. Google maps clear winner. Sorry a bit off topic.

    I don't like the new maps updates on my iPhone or iPad but I mostly use Maps in AppleCarplay where it work fine.
