    So Google Maps has more features, but Apple Maps has the quickest route.

    I have used both. Google maps is definitely more accurate and very
    detailed. Google maps has spent more time and has much more vast info than
    Apple maps. Everything is updated a whole lot more than Apple maps.

    The word route is pronounced the same way as ‘root.’ Just saying… ;-)

    It’s obvious that you are biased on iOS. Google maps is much more accurate
    and shows more detail for the side roads. Google maps also shows the
    picture of your destination. Why did you not call this out?

    I have a Samsung s4, and my navigation doesn’t turn with me like in this
    video. I see the road from above and not in a view like his.
    Cane somebody explain me how to fix this.

    Navfree and Waze are equally good, and they are free!

    Although I prefer IOS over android, google maps is defiantly better.

    Navigation will be different if it’s different side of the road

    Leaving the parking lot the Apple said turn right and showed turning left.
    When he left the planned route the Apple showed turning right several
    times before it made up its mind to turn left. Apple looks better but
    Google is faster and more accurate.

    It’s easy to see you’re a bit biased towards the iPhone.

    the android version tends to prepare u more for the turn which is useful so
    u can get into ur lane early instead of last minute

    Does Apple Maps have the option to avoid tolls/highways like G Maps does?
    Without these options (which I couldn’t find), the app is pretty much
    unusable for me.

    no… apple for some reason HAD to make their own maps to be superior to
    google but failed miserably. google owns android therefore android has
    google maps…
