Question

Posted

In regards to searching for things, the new iOS 6 maps app sucks. But the turn by turn is average. I wish it had more, like your current speed, traffic overlay (not just traffic times built in), and a few more options. But one thing I really want is the Flyover feature.

If I am driving, I want to see the hybrid or satellite view while i am driving. Why isn't this an option? Because it will take too much bandwith? That is up to the user and the user's data plan. I want to drive in between buildings and valleys and elevation changes. I think it would be cool and unique.

Hopefully a cydia crack will enable this.

What do you guys think?

I don't know if you're aware, but the entire maps application is pretty ****ing useless for anything at the moment.

I would love to see the speed as well. I liked how Navigon showed the current speed as well as the speed limit for the area. I could care less about hybrid view as I would rather just see more road information and gas station/restaurant etc.

No, don't add it. I deal with enough idiots looking at their phone or their GPS while they're driving. I swear some people mount them directly in front of their eyes.

Voice turn-by-turn directions are more than enough.

LOL I know. It was more about the speed limit showing up. Honestly I HATED it showing both my current speed and speed limit, because my wife would tell me you are going to fast all the time.. lol

Are the current speed limits shown on GPS devices accurate? I've never tried it, I'd be amazed if they could get them right 100% of the time around here.

Nice for the highways, I suppose.

[quote]Why no Flyover in Turn-by-Turn[/quote]
Because generally taken cars don't fly.

I'm having difficulties finding it ever since I upgraded my new iPad to iOS 6 with the new Maps app.
