Cycling is a joke. What is so hard to get this done worldwide?
Cycling is like committing suicide in lots of countries.

It’s crazy to think it took Apple over 10 years to finally add multi-destinations within a route/trip.

All these features are great, but obviously years behind Google Maps.
I disagree that it is years behind Google maps. Google maps was out before Apple Maps. But using it today coming back from Melbourne Australia. It’s amazing and has been for a while marking hazards and car crashes. To Siri verbally alerting to speed cameras. Not to mention basic things like showing traffic lights on the maps. It was faultless.

Monaco is so big that Apple had to spend much time on it before expanding to other smaller countries.
