Google Maps for iOS 5, Google Maps 6.9.2 on Android 4.11 and iOS6 Maps compared ·

Apple Maps shows much less detail and has much less contrast, what makes it very hard to use in bright daylight. For the street where I am located, only Google Maps on iOS shows the name of the street and the one way sign.

Apple Maps is a reason not to buy an iPhone 5.
