Perhaps ACTUALLY knowing where you are going would be a good start. People are so dumb. When electricity runs out one day, prepare for the Zombie apocalypse!

Folks, once you stop drinking the Apple Kool Aid you will see that Droid and Google Maps is a much better option. I don't work in the telecom industry or either player. Just sayin' that what iPhone has Droid has that and more.

Maybe no one remember the good old days of Google Maps when they first started, or MapQuest or the others? NONE OF THEM HAD IT RIGHT ON DAY ONE. It will take time to get all the data in place. One major issue is local cities/counties and states updating public records in a timely fashion. If the data in the public records was correct these errors wouldn't happen. Its not as if any map team for any company knows where everything is located.

TomTom? Seriously? Good luck. Google is so far ahead that they have lapped them about 10X. They just upgraded Google Maps and Nav again. you can't stop that success.

This is Apple we're talking about. Move those landmarks to where Apple tells you they are supposed to be. Failure to do this will simply leave apple customers, which apple thinks should be everyone, confused as to why things aren't the way that they are supposed to be. It's too much for them. Reality, get fixed!

Back in 2004 MapQuest told me to take the Nicollet Avenue exit off westbound Crosstown. Except there isn't such an exit. Nothing's perfect.
