While navigating with Apple Maps via iPhone or CarPlay in those countries, a set of directional arrows will now appear at the top of the screen that indicate which lane your vehicle should be in to exit a freeway or complete a turn.

Apple Maps lane guidance has been available in the United States and China since iOS 11. The feature began rolling out in additional regions alongside the iOS 11.2 beta, and the countries are now reflected on Apple's iOS feature availability page.

Apple Maps still shows speed limits in the United States and United Kingdom only.

(Thanks, David!)

Apple Maps is still far behind Google Maps in Switzerland. Loads of missing places and no public transport.

This is great, now they just need to work on getting the speed limits around the UK up to date. Almost every journey I make the phone says it’s a faster limit than it actually is, particularly 30 in a 20 and 60 in a 50.
Integration with variable speed limits would be pretty sweet too.

As much as I want this map to be successful, I never ever trust Apple for my turn by turn direction anymore. I thought this map is only suck in the country side. There’s no excuse for a bigger cities anymore knowing that they’re supposed to get more data from users and their own team. From now on Google is my go to map and Apple will be playing catch up forever. If you’re visiting a place you’re not familiar with don’t put your life with Apple Map.

Always use Apple Maps with skepticism & caution if you choose to use it at all. Never trust it, but use it as a guide. I wish I could permanently delete it off my phone. It's dangerous.

Fact, Google Maps isn't perfect either, I used it a few times on my trip in Europe, 3 times it send me the wrong way while Apple was perfect.
