Well I understand ur logic of profitability for the company.but this is the logic of the consumer . I paid the same amount of money and just because of my ethnicity is different I shouldnt get the essential features. Hey I'm not complaining about not getting the 3d view or even voice guided navigation. Just the basic direction queries! If u think that is too much of a demand well...
And another thing...if google can do it why can't apple?same principle applies to both companies in developing the maps right?the cars and per capita and all.
I was using the turn by turn voice guided feature of google maps in Samsung galaxy ace today when I had to go to an unknown place.thats a midrange stuff.
And i own an iPad and to know if I upgrade to ios6 I'll lose even the basic direction queries which will make the gps useless...and people here are justifying the company in taking such a decision when it's rival if offering same features plus more even in lowend devices!!!

Australia will not have turn by turn on release of io6. It Is not discrimination at all the reason is the mapping system is not complete and that could be for many reasons. Apple will imliment it in a later release so I suggest be patient.
Canada should get it early. Drive 700 kilometers. Turn left. Drive another 300 kilometers. You've arrived at your destination.

Ethnicity doesn't matter here. If ethnicity were key to business, with all the Indian IT people in India and throughout the world, India would be among the first mapped.
It does suck that we're losing functionality because Apple is trying to establish its beachhead, but that has nothing to do with discrimination. That's Apple putting its interest ahead of customers so it can stake a claim. All customers who like Google maps, no matter their ethnicity, will get hurt in that process. Personally, I like Google maps, and I'm in the U.S.
Apple will have to come up with something pretty spectacular to compete with this. Take it from me, as a professional driver, this thing is accurate. Here's the run I'm going to do tomorrow.
I can legally drive 13 hours a day, so looking at what Google Maps has provided, I know I can't hang around. One way or another, I have to shave 10 minutes off the trip. And if anyone thought I was joking in my earlier post, here are the turn by turn directions.
I have the greatest confidence in Apple to eventually come up with something as good as this. I just hope we don't have to wait too long.
That was my assumption, as well.Not a chance I'm afraid.
I agree with the others...this has nothing to do with ethnicity.I paid the same amount of money and just because of my ethnicity is different I shouldnt get the essential features.
you will still have other mapping apps you can load. You will NOT loose any capability.And i own an iPad and to know if I upgrade to ios6 I'll lose even the basic direction queries which will make the gps useless
