    On the news last night they said Apple was again using Google Maps. Do the iPad4 owners need to download this Google Map App. from the Apple store or from Google?

    App store is the only way to get apps.

    Your news provider is misinformed.


    There is now a Google Maps app available from the App Store. It is an iPhone app but will work on the iPad. The native app still uses the out of date, incorrect and downright embarrassing TomTom maps, as shown in this view of a road junction which was completed nearly a year ago.

    Here's the same junction on Google Maps. Looks like no one has swung a satellite past here in the last few months, although Google's image is clearly a bit more recent.

    It's an iPhone app. At the top of your screen you should have a switch to change your view from iPad apps to iPhone. Touch that and Google Maps will be there.

    Would you care to give us a few of the major items you had found that were fixed with the 6.0.1 upgrade of O.S.
