All we ever needed from a navigating system was accuracy and functionality, and that’s exactly what Google Maps have delivered to its consumers. With the launch of Google maps on Apple operating systems it has become a lot easier for a person to navigate all the routes with just a single touch on products enabled with iOS 6. Although it is a big relief, but compatibility of this application is a little jittery because it runs a little slow on Apple iOs 4 but if we compare its performance with iOS 5 , then we might find that there is a big difference in the performance of the application between both the operating systems. As for now, Google maps application is free for Apple operating systems based smart phones.
