iOS Maps is Apple's biggest fail since the intro of MobileMe.

Too little too late. I use Google maps and set them as default using the MapsOpener JB Tweak.

Apple just hire the people at waze or tomtom to help you fix your maps program. Maps is the absolute worst thing about an iPhone in my opinion but I don't use it due to it being completely useless!
