  • Bonifacio, France

  • Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

  • Calvi, France

  • Corte, France

  • Ghent, Belgium

  • Guaymas, Mexico

  • Messina, Italy

  • Mobile, AL, United States

  • Newcastle, Australia

god why!!

I thought they would consider fixing the massive coverage gaps in central London (e.g. west of Hyde Park) before the likes of Nottingham would be added.

I don't understand why it takes so long. Surely a couple of fly bys in a special plane are all that are required?

Because there are people who live outside London and the South East? Also, flying a plane around over major cities often requires clearance - not quite so simple.

I wish Apple would have left the maps to Google. Flyover is cool, but Google Maps has so much of a lead on Apple Maps it's not even funny.

Why? You can still use Googles maps, and with Apples competition, Google are pushed to improve even more. Its a win-win for consumers.

Personally I use Apple maps as they are more than adequate for my use and they work well with Siri.

Flyover usually starts to suck when you zoom into street level, but looks great when you're zooming around the tops of buildings. I'm wondering if Apple would ever combine Flyover with a street-level 3d scan from a car and then stitch them together in the 3d model. Having extra data at the street level would make it a worthy competitor to street view, even superior.
