Rural and suburban areas still left out

I see the amazing progress made for California and New York megacites—very impressive, I won’t lie—meanwhile, the same problems we’ve always had with Apple Maps in the Sourh and Midwest, continue to persist. Directions to the wrong places. Requesting illegal u-turns and other maneuvers that would get us ticketed. House numbers and precise locations in rural/suburban areas can be up to miles off, depending.

I’m not sure I understand. Apple Maps has had years, years, and years to develop an intelligent maps app, while giving customers reliability in place locations and road maneuvers. Google maps and Waze can make the “flyover country” work, why can’t Apple? Are they stretched thin on the design team or something? If so, get them some more developers and give those of us out here where your food comes from the same amount of accuracy you’d find in Downtown San Francisco! I was so excited for the redesign. Unfortunately, unless you live in a major urban area, it’s a slap of paint on an old heather. It’s sad.

Actually difficult to use for Apple and glitchy

It seems like someone at apple thought they were smarter than the users and being helpful when it turns out the app can be a huge pain to use for anything but basic navigation. They made the address too sticky so that it is a real challenge to have the app forget that address so I can enter a new address. Forget about adding any stop you want along the way too. I cannot figure out how to enter what I want instead of the standard list of generic places apple allows. How do I go from A to B but stop at my friends house along the way? Lately, the app has too many occasions when it thinks I am off the road, literally off in the woods along the side of the highway, or going east when I am heading north and it gets confused telling me to go places that are completely wrong. All this happens in the middle of a trip not during some adjustments to it - pretty bad for such a smart system. I do like the newer features that track traffic but I hate that it tries to detour me around it automatically - I know that might be helpful BUT don’t do it unless I give permission!! There might be another reason I took that route and I can handle the traffic. Please do not think too much for me as a user and restrict what I can do or make choices without asking. Instead, give me the options and tools I need to solve problems, then be helpful with suggestions along the way.

Dangerous App. Extends beyond incompetence

Every time I use apple maps, I almost get in a car accident. Today seriously shook me up, as apple maps re-routed 4/5 different times while i was on a 70 MPH highway. It told me to merge where I shouldn’t, it took me the opposite direction of my destination, and took me down tons of one way streets. The inconsistency of this app, is dangerous and careless of apple. Not to mention, it has no sense of direction even for the walking feature. The app does not know which direction you are pointing, and will likely take you the wrong way 8/10 times. Not only that, but when u start the trip, it doesn’t even start you in the right spot, and again shows you a different route to where your destination is. If you are not paying attention, this app will cause you to crash your car. Sometimes it doesn’t even say what exit to get off of, it just gives you an arrow? Apple maps makes sure that wherever you are going you are taking the longest way possible. It does nothing to avoid traffic and actually helps to build up traffic by steering all drivers to a route that has the most lights. It is clear that the creators of this app have no dedication to efficiency or correctness. It is lazy and honestly an embarrassment to apple, as most of their products and apps are very helpful. Use google maps, it will save you a lot of time. Get it together apple maps, it’s honestly gross.
