New Motorola Ad Mocks Apple Maps [Image]
Motorola has posted an ad mocking the new Maps application in iOS 6.
The ad features the iPhone 5 next to the Motorola Droid Razr M. Both phones have performed a maps search for '315 e 15th st ny'. The iPhone apparently locates 315 Marborough Rd; whereas, the Razr M is shown to find the correct address.
Apple recently issued a statement following criticism of the application.
"Customers around the world are upgrading to iOS 6 with over 200 new features including Apple Maps, our first map service," spokeswoman Trudy Muller told AllThingsD. "We are excited to offer this service with innovative new features like Flyover and Siri integration, and free turn by turn navigation. We launched this new map service knowing that it is a major initiative and we are just getting started with it. We are continuously improving it, and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get. We're also working with developers to integrate some of the amazing transit apps in the App Store into iOS Maps. We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better."
