Review: Google Maps for iPhone drives competition with Apple

Score so far in actual use.
Apple's Maps: about 8 out of 8 attempts correct.
GOogle Maps: zero out of 1 attempt correct.

My initial impression is that right now that the Google app has the edge, but it's no bad thing to have more than one maps app with you and I'm sure there's an Apple update just around the corner. Game on!
Except that Apple made that App, not Google. Google never made or maintained the Google Maps App on iOS 5 and earlier.

In my part of the world I'm preferring to use Apple Maps but I'll keep Google Maps on my iPhone 5 as a backup.

You must have something screwed up on your iPhone. I get Apple Maps voice directions over Bluetooth just fine.

The main problem I have with Google Maps is that it isjust plain wrong about half the time I use it. Not just a few Metres out but Kilometres, the wrong village even! I have had it unable to find addresses and it constantly miss-labels roads.
I still have it on my iPhone but frankly there hasn't been one occasion where Google maps has found what I wanted.
