Here's the problem Rich. Apple and its followers have created the illusion of perfection. Apple has gone so far out of the way to remain proprietary, that it is willing to sacrifice its user's wants or needs. While I understand Apple's reasoning to control every aspect, their tight integration worked at low marketshare. However, integral key aspects will suffer more under larger scale usage.

Seriously. What harm would it do for Apple to use Google Maps as the default until they polish their own version? Allowing YouTube? I believe that Apple's vengeance is beginning to show its ugly head. In your defense and in reality, your experience with the mapping system is not that uncommon to others. Yet, a good percentage are experiencing out of normal mishaps. I input my address and it placed me four streets over and three houses down. It is nowhere near the accuracy many seek and it's unacceptable. If I relied on this for directions, I would be facing the possibility of going to the wrong client.This is far below Apple standards.

No offense, but this is a pretty large issue and I don't get your acceptance of it and brushing it under the carpet as work in progress. It mimicks Apple's excuse.
