To be honest, I've also not had any real issues with Apple Maps system - its directions have got me where I wanted to go every time I've used it. The only "issue" I have with it is it's a bit sparse on detail of your surroundings e.g. looking for nearby restaurants / coffee shops / pubs when in a new town. Or the other day, driving past a big country house / large gates etc and wondering where it was. Google Maps nearly always has stuff like this but I've found Apple's version severely lacking at the moment.
Initially, Google Maps wasn't exactly the epitome of accuracy or functionality. Will Apple persevere with Maps or will it be quietly removed come the next iOS update?
Now that is a really good question.
I suspect they might well stick with it, as they want to do the whole location-based services thing. Otherwise, it could be quietly lost in the mists of time.
