When the iPhone 5 was released in September, it was like Christmas had come early to those lined up around the block to get their hands on Apple’s latest. There was an unexpected lump of coal, however, in the form of Apple’s Maps app, which had bumped the popular Google Maps off of the platform. Christmas has come early again, as Google released its mapping software for iOS 6 last night, and there was much rejoicing.

Not everyone is thrilled with the news.

Just how bad was Apple’s in-house Maps app? Just this week, police in Australia warned citizens against using the app after several motorists were left stranded and had to be rescued.

To be fair, the police issued a similar warning just days later cautioning against relying on Google Maps as well, but it seems most people are fully confident in their old friend.

Well, if your phone battery dies, you might get lost. Or, you could leave the phone at home and get lost on purpose, just for fun.

    If you’re trusting any app to replace common sense, you’ll be in the news soon.

    Glad to have Google Maps back, but don’t like the new interface. Also, can’t wait to see if the new Google Maps shows me driving cross-country thru the woods while on GA316 like the old one did.

    I think most of these dipshits were lost long before the iPhone was invented.
