The wait is finally over. Google has just released the standalone Google Maps for iOS 6 users. The new app requires at least iOS 5.1 or later version to be installed.
Apple has removed the built-in Google Maps app from iOS 6 and included its own Maps app in it. But many users were not happy with this move due to number of reasons which have already been discussed many times. The main reasons included the lack of accuracy, less-detailed maps and incorrect positioning in many areas.
Google's new and latest Maps app for iPhone 5, iPhone 4(s)/3GS, iPod and iPad gives the users back all the features what they were having before iOS 6.
Apart from other improvements, the most demanding turn by turn navigation is offer in this version.
