Can anyone help? Want to use the map app for the iphone 5 if I purchase it, but not sure if the bugs have been fixed.
I'm having an issue with the our blue tooth which is paired with our GMC Acadia. It's works fine with the exception of each time it gives directions vocally it repeats "Call Ended" through the stereo system..... It does this every single time the App gives vocal instructions. Apple maps - No problem although I need to be connected via USB which the vehicle has. Apple maps is fine so I'm not sure why all the Hype about Google maps for iOS. I am just courious if anyone has come across this issue with the Google maps for iOS in a vehicle.
In maps or Google maps the voice stopped speaking to me on my IPHONE4 Can anyone help?ThanksAbester10
I updated my iphone 4 to 6.1.3 . since the upgrade I have not been able to use any of my navigation programs. I need these to work. I have tried Waze, TeleNav, Google maps. Is there a fix for this?
My iphone 5 has the latest ios 6.1.3 and the battery life is hit and miss. The phone has been factory wiped in itunes and re set up. It sometimes will drop 50 percent on its own in a couple hours. If i do the home button and power reset on the phone the battery will report better. Maybe its a software glitch. I was also disappointed with the fact that i bought a high end home stereo and the iphone doesnt support the new apt-x codec yet their laptops do? Why is this. Its no wonder apple stocks are falling. I have owned every iphone since the 3gs and really have not seen any real improvements other than processors and screens. Poor customizations, lack of ability to personalize the phone and really nothing to keep me with buying another apple. This is unfortunate as the hardware is great but the feature set just hasn't improved in 5 years. In fact i think it has gotten worse. Being a communications tech i used to use wifi apps for testing signal strength on installed accesspoints and those apps got stripped be ause of apples sdk or whatever it was. The slew of apps on the android market for this is staggering. Now i see that motorola, htc and samsungs are all supporting the apt-x codec but no apple. Gps apps are poor and apple maps for our area are black and whit and half are covered in clouds from the satellite view so you cant see the streets anyways. As a business phone the iphone is looking less imoressive day by day. As a music player its also now being outdone. I hope apple takes some of this to heart and really does something impressive to IOS 7 to restore faith in its fans. And maybe some day we will be able to use one of our songs for a ring tone instead of having to pay. My old cdma phone even had this ability.
maps on İOS 6 is very bad for Turkish users because i couldn't find any of my location which i want to find regularly. But Google maps better than Apple maps. When will we reach the google maps app in Turkish Apple Store?
My only concern about updating my iOS or Carrier Settings is that I don't want to loose Google maps until Apple has worked on their map app and fixed most of the bugs in it. My daughter upgraded her iOS and we have taken trips together. Google is not as "pretty" but is much, much more accurate and easier to use (IMHO).
Hello, I have just bought my new iphone 5, 6.1.3 and my maps does not work and stays in blank evereythink. Is this a problem of nes firmware?
I'm trying to bookmark a pin from a photo that I took that has the location. I don't know how to save the pin in maps. Please help.
Hello, Does anyone know where I can find the complete description of all the individual data presented in Field Test Mode on an iphone (via dialing *3001#12345#*)? Yup, I know what the basic decible strength means, but looking to interpret all of the other details. My goal is to find the ideal configuration for a cellular frequency booster/repeater directional antenna and am getting some odd readings so far. The fact that I am in a mountain rural area and have scarce access to two competing cellular towers miles away complicates the task. The Field Test Mode data would help refine the direction of the consitantly strongest signal. Peace,Dr. Z.
I am not able to get any directions on my maps i am using iphone 4s and updated to ios 6.1.3 and whenever i try to find a route it always says directions could not be found can anyone help in fixing it
I have updated my iphone 5 to IOS 6 latest version (6.1.3) last week. Since then, Apple maps doesn't display maps anymore on screen. GPS position and directions appear but on a blank screen. 3G and LTE aren't teh problem, iut works well with other apps and Google maps. Is there anyone having the same issue ?
Can the iphone 5 maps app voice instructions be routed via Bluetooth to my car - the way the telephone does? Thanks. raywat
I report on many problems at Apple new map app. But it seems Apple doen't take that reports sersioly. How long should I wait to see a report taking care and to see the map update according to the report?How the "Report a problem" system works?
I just started to get a SIM Failure Pop up on my iphone 5on Thursday while traveling and using maps fornavigation. I cannot seem to remove or repair this error.I have gone to yoru support page and followedinstructions on how to reset network.I first tried to send a text and failure came up. Then resetnetwork and text went through, but pop up still came upwith Sim Failure every time I turn my phone on.I also followed instructions to remove Sim Card whenturned off and Reinserted it and that did not work either.What do I do? I have powered off, updated phone andanything on yoru site I couldl handle myself to do.Can you fix this? Or is it a Verizon Wireless issue?
Sometime around the Feb 8, I suddenly lost capability to access the internet thru the Virgin/Sprint 3g network and Safari. Wifi works fine, as well as phone and text. Have contacted Virgin multiple times with no result. Spent 3 hours in Apple store, who gave me a new 4s but it has the same problem. Have tried every solution seen on the net, including soft & hard reboots, toggling Airplane mode, and network reset. I have not yet done a factory reset, holding that as a last resort. Odd thing is that some apps do work on 3g: Phone, Messages, Google maps, Translator, Game Center, Skype, Clock, Xfinity TV, iCloud, and Opera Mini. What doesn't work are: Safari, Weather Channel, Xfinity Mobile, Google, Chrome, Dictionary, Stocks, Apple App & iTunes Store, Movie Night, Gas Buddy, White Pages, Apple maps, Google Earth, and many more. The odd thing is that I can access Google through Opera Mini, and that works fine. I left the Apple Store convinced that the problem lay with Virgin Wireless, but after a lot of online investigation, I am beginning to think that it may be an iphone problem. Is there anybody out there who can make some sense of what works and what doesn't and diagnose this problem so I can get the phone working back to where it is supposed to?
Hello Everyone, I have a question in reference to the iphone 4s GPS. I'm going to use google maps to find directions between 2 locations (point A to point B) while I'm on Wi-Fi on my iphone 4s. Neither of the locations that I'm finding directions between will be my current location. When I get to point A I will not have any cellular or data service whatsoever. My question is if I use google maps (keep it running in the background) when I get to point A will it be able to give me real time movement (the blue dot) when I get to point A so I can use google maps to find my way to point B. Will the GPS be utilized at the point? Also if I hit the button on google maps to display my current location will it do that. All help and knowledge will be greatly appreciated.
Meg St._Clair wrote:Google refused to provide spoken turn-by-turn directions on iPhones at all until Apple kicked their app out of the operating system. Really? So, it's not Apple to initiate the move. If that's the case, Apple should develop its own Apple Indoor Navigator and Apple 3D glassware. b.t.w. Since Apple maps launched, I found that the recent TomTom updates on GPS have navigation mistakes that didn't exist in the last 3 years. Find my iphone and Find my Mac are deteriated on the details.
My iphone 4S is running ios 6.1.2Apple maps doesn't display any information at all. The location pin is visible but that's it, no map background is visible.This also affects other map based apps that use the map. Google maps works fine, and internet access isn't a problem Any ideas?
I will avoid iOS 6 until maps is working.
Is there a way to force all distance mesurements in Google maps into kilometers? I understand changing the region format works, however I still want my date format to remain, and Safari to search with Google UK
After iOS 6.1 updated, it broke maps. Does anyone know how to force reload just maps without wiping the phone and reloading? In standard mode, maps doesn't render any roads at all, but works in hybrid mode. satellite mode works just fine. The bug appears to only affect standard mode on iphone 5 with iOS 6.1.
I am getting around 8mbps speeds on my (T-Mobile) 3G network on my iphone 5 (A1429) Browsing internet on safari is very fast as well. Songs are streaming well on spotify. But the APPLE maps & GOOGLE maps never load directions (cannot reach server ) they work perfectly fine when on Wi-Fi I tried all the tweaks in the discussion "https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1598582?start=30&tstart=0" NO LUCK Anyone has the same issue or know the fix ?
Do you have a question for this user-to-user support forum, that your fellow users can answer? If you're not happy with Apple maps, use an alternative - there are many.
Since I've updated my iphone 4S to iOS 6.1.1, I can't use my phone to play music or follow directions through my car audio system via USB. The phone recognizes that it is plugged in and charges, but will not play music through the speakers and directions from maps are not read through the speakers like in previous iOS versions. The way I know it is the iOS instead of the connector is because I tried my sister's 4S on iOS 6.1 and it worked. Her iPod on iOS 6.1 also worked. Please send a fix for this.
iphone 5 synced up OK with Prius for phone. Phone works well over the sound system. Siri speaks over the sound system when in the car. Oddly enough, Google maps nav assistant speaks over the sound system. The question is: How can I sync the music/multimedia on the iphone with the bluetooth on my Prius. Or can I???
When I play game the phone is warming around 30C, also it happens when I use maps and camera. I dont know how to fix it.
whats wrong with Apple's maps? I cannot understand why apple is unable to solve this problem. Remote areas cannot be traced, there is no meaning of using apple maps.
How can we get the google maps for IOS 6.1 when it is only available at the US iTunes Store? Appreciate your help this matter... thanks
How to download Google maps to iphone4s?
are google maps available in the i phone update?
iphone 5 screen is repeatedly unresponsive at the edges. This has ruined my enjoyment of this device. I cannot play my games properly at all. The first iphone 5 I obtained through contract I went straight to Apple store complained and had it replaced only to discover exactly the same problem manifest in the device. If you try to slide the screen with icons below the level of the last row of icons it doesnt respond. This has contributed to the iphone share price demise. Together with maps its simply unnaceptable that a company with billions of Dollars in cash could not implement proper maps OR mis the production checking for the less respnsibve screen. People have come to reply on these devices it is poor shoddy work to implement this slackness in a product that led the world so wonderfully in previous versions, now look.. Samsung have caught up and are now the biggest phone maker in the world. That is not something Steve Jobs would have acepted.
Hello everybody, I'll visit USA for the first time on March.I'd like to know if the iphone maps can be enough to use as my navigation system or no ?I've iphone 5.I'll rent a car, and want to make sure it works fine. Regards,Abdelaal,
I really hate the new maps App.. how can I downgrade to iOS 5.1 ? I live in Madrid, Spain, and the previous Google maps App embeded with the previous operative system was SO MUCH BETTER than the new iOS,in this map it never shows anything, I used to search for business names, or street address and in this new version you got with tom tom is an absollutely a mess. Have you tryed to search Madrid's main street "Paseo de la Castellana" the app shows "no item found". New Apple Map is just disappointing! it is the WORST APPLICATION EVER. I used that App to orientate myself in the city.I' dont want to jailbreak my devices, but there's got to be an alternative to downgrade to iOS 5 anywhere. You just update to iOS 6 to start some app war with Google affecting Mac users worldwide in your private battle.Please, HOW CAN I DOWNGRADE to iOS 5.1 ?? the best iOS built for mobile devices, and I remember the performance was better than the new one.
...for future use??
Hola,Al intentar descargar el maps de google, sale el mensaje "El articulo que pediste no está disponible en el Store paraguayo en este momento".. sabrían cuando estará disponible?? Muchas gracias. Saludos.
I installed google maps on my iphone 4S, but the icon is not showing. It is showing on my iPad okay, though. What can I do?
Hi, apps are disappearing off my iphone and I can't get them back. Spotify, Shazam, BBC iPlayer and the maps app have just gone. I have tried to redownload them from the App Store but there isn't the option, cant get them back with iTunes either. Help!
I don't have a map icon after upgrading to ios6 on my 4s. There is a tab for maps in settings though. Thank you for any assistance.
Personally,if I or my business is truly dependant on GPS functionality, I would buy either a GPS or a GPS dedicated app on the iphone. maps/Google is good for casual use, but I have found that they are weak for GPS critical tasks. I personally use Co-Pilot live on the iphone. It's expensive but it has never failed.
I recently bought an iphone 4S that came with iOS 6. In an effort to get google maps baked in to iOS and to be able to jailbreak my phone. Can I uninstall iOS 6 and replace it with iOS 5?
Hello. As we all know Apple uses Yelp to add locations on the maps app and 2 months ago Turkey became the 20th country to use Yelp. The maps app hasn't been updated for a long time and there are still many big mistakes for locations in Turkey, nothing has been corrected for a long time. I'm just wondering when Apple will update the maps app and integrate Yelp into Turkey. It's very interesting how Apple hasn't tried improving their map system while all the necessary information is already provided by Yelp. Will the new ios update have these new features?
Sorry if this has been answered before, etc. But I haven't upgraded from iOS 5.x to 6 because it takes away maps and YouTube. I can live with Google's YT replacement but like the integration the orig. native app has. But the deal-breaker for me is maps. The new Google maps is good, but the native maps in 5.x is IMO better in several ways. I don't need the GPS of the Google maps so that's not really a selling point. Any ideas or any news/updates? Thanks in advance!
Hi Everyone, On 13th December, Apple/ Google finally released Google maps app for iphone (iOS6) in iTune's US app store only.When will Google maps be available for Malaysia iTune apps store? After few months Apple maps is still hopeless. Now I am relying on my new Nexus7 for maps and addresses search. I just wonder whether I need to wait long. If too long, I might as well switch to adroid now. ;-) Yes, there is a lot of hard feeling on Apple removing Google maps without a proper replacement, as suddenly my iphone gps and maps functions can no longer work propoerly. Lot's of time wasted and frustration of got stuck on the road. Thanks.
I have an iphone 5 16 GB and its been freezing alot and closes out of safari and my games often and my maps freezes alot, and also i just got the notifaction to update my phone to 6.02 i think it is until yesterday. I'm still under my 90 warranty with apple. would they give me new one thats not glitchy if i brought it to the genius bar?
HI :-) my friend did a software update (6.0.1) with her iphone 4s and her apple maps doesnt talk while giving directions.. :-( does anyone know why? and what can she do now?
When i click the 3D button and swipe up on the map, it will not make things 3D like it's supposed to and you can't zoom in!
I just got an iphone 5 (my third iphone). I have been using the Google maps app but I'd like to know of any reports about how Apple maps has been improving. I have found the Google maps app has foibles of it's own and I like to think Apple should have it's own maps app very much improved over the coming months.
I can't zoom with finger pinch( 2 fingers) in photos, safari and google maps on iphone 4s... Does anyone have any idea what may be the problem?
With new apple maps it doted my home address incorrectly and I cannot change it or delete it, help
