A nice idea but poorly executed. Navigation is difficult. There are controls at the top & bottom of the screen but it is not clear how to bring up the bottom controls. You can not zoom into the map to the same degree you can with apple maps and you can not select between the three suggested routes when displaying directions (it seems to pick the worst route). In theory you can send directions to your iDevice using this app but why would you want to?
W. T. F. ? ? ?
navigation on the TV is so difficult it seems impossible to use. The use of the TV app is so unintuitive there must be a steep learning curve because I can’t even use it. the iPad app just sits there with a blank white screen. disappointingly useless.
Very Difficult to Use
This is the poorest map app available. Very hard to control on Apple TV, in fact impossible. Use Apple Maps on iPhone iPad or Apple computer. You will spend a long time just getting to where you want to go. You can not search for address. You must guide cursor to spot. Do not waste your time. This app needs capability to search for address to work. And that is not possible with Apple TV.
