    It now show the small symbols for information (i) and for directions (a car). The symbol for street view to enable me to see actual buildings in detail is no longer available. What can i do. I have ios 6.

    Sorry, didn't have time to check. I guess you'll have to use your computer, unfortunately, until (or if) Google makes a maps app for iOS.

    There's nothing much you can do about it – when you updated to iOS 6, it wiped all the apps that used Google Maps and replaced them with the inferior Apple Maps.

    I posted this about 3 months ago in a thread where people were getting over-excited about the silly "Flyover" feature in Apple Maps:

    Needless to say, I have NOT updated to iOS 6.

    Get Live Street View Free. Not as good as the old street view, but usable, and fast.

    The reason is depressingly simple: they removed it because they hate Google. They are behaving like spiteful children. They've done this type of thing before with other apps/systems.

    They can hardly disallow people who have existing gmail accounts, which means they have to allow Google calendars etc too.

    That's oversimplified. Apple was unhappy about letting Google get all that juicy user location data for free. It's worth a fortune to advertisers, and Apple decided to retain control of it. As usual, it's not about emotions. It's about money.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, folks at Apple read this and similar blogs and have come to the understanding that millions of iOS users are really irritated by this premature push out of an incomplete product. Their Apple response that this is new and will get better over the next few years just doesn't get it. With five iPads and six iPhones in our family, only my iPad and iPhone have iOS6, there will be no such upgrade on the other machines until Apple get's it right or allows Google's new mapping app into the app store.
