Coming to iOS6: Turn-by Turn Nav with Siri integration

 

Just announced at Apple WWDC... will be interesting to see details on that. iTunes should have video of the WWDC keynote later today or tomorrow to see what all else is coming from Apple.

iOS6

I look forward to any update from Apple. My iPads and iPhones are great already and the updates always serve to make them operate better. Now, longer battery life on my 4s and I will be one happy guy! Thanks for the updated information from WWDC. If you are there, I hope the weather in San Fran is to your liking.

Not there

Just followed some live-blogging.

Apple's new app will be TomTom/Tele Atlas map data with some Cupertino special sauce...

Additional info: turn-by-turn will be available on iPad2 and above, and iPhone4S and above.

Answered my question before I asked it :D

Pretty much you already answered the Big Question of the two I was going to ask:

a) Who's the map provider? (We know now it's TeleAtlas with some Apple mods--rather similar to how Google Maps was operating before Google decided to strike it on their own re their mapping service.)

Which only leaves the other question:

b) Will the new Maps app for iOS allow offline caching or storing of map data (similar to what Google Maps is rolling out of beta now)?

At any rate, MOAR COMPETITION is always a better thing IMHO grin

Great video of the turn by

Coming To iOS6: Turn-by Turn Nav With Siri Integration

Well, I guess Garmin-Asus already tried their hand at making phones. I still say they need to get cracking on a StreetPilot Onboard For Android. At this point, it may already be too late for many people. While this is obviously a response to Google Maps, it will clearly have an adverse impact of Garmin and others.

Garmin makes an android app

It's called Navigon.

The map source is stated to be TomTom (TeleAtlas). There has been a TomTom GPS app for the iPhone for some time and it has cached maps, so I assume that the Apple app will also have cached maps.

I'm not going to assume that - I'll pay attention to what those that have the beta running report is going on, or Apple fills in the details on how things will work.

Excellent!

The IOS6 upgrade will be free. Maps is part of that upgrade. Wonder if the traffic feature in Maps will be free too.

Oops! I see Maps currently has a free traffic feature! Don't think it considers in providing directions though...

Apple doesn't have the beta testers under NDA? I'm surprised to hear that, given how paranoid Apple usually is about new products.

Where are the beta testers posting their experiences?

Android...

Don't understand why so many think this new nav from apple is so special. Google navigation on android phones has had this for years. Apple is just catching up....It will be difficult to match the nav function that android has... I use it quite a bit and it is great...besides that little screen on the iPhone does not work well ... several friends are switching to android phones just to have a larger screen and good nav program...I personally think the new Galaxy, HTC and LG phones with the larger screens will put Apple in the back seat. I think many people are giving up on the iPhone because it is strictly tied to what Apple wants you to have and see. Just my own two cents..I am not knocking the iPhone I just think they have gotten complacent thinking they are the best. Anyone that hasn't looked at the new Android phones coming out should before tying themselves to Apple....

I read a report that the personal/automotive GPS market will be dead within a couple of years. Of course, they've said before and it hasn't died yet. I wonder how long the "lifetime" maps and traffic updates will work if the market dies as they say. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

I wish this was true.

There are so many issues with my iPhone /iPad I'd much rather be able to load Android on them.

Apple does hardware the best, but the iOS is buggy, full of missing features still.

For what it's worth I didn't really see anything startling in the You Tube presentation other than the fly-over view. But again that's more of a bell or whistle when you are at your desk rather than something you would use while enroute from A to B.

I wonder if this will affect apple sales

Apple fails to fend off mobile tracking lawsuit

REUTERS - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) must defend against a lawsuit accusing it of letting advertisers secretly track the activity of millions of mobile device users, a federal judge ruled, but Google Inc (GOOG.O) and several other defendants were dismissed from the case.

Owners of iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches may pursue claims against Apple under two California consumer protection laws, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, said in a decision late Tuesday. Koh oversees nationwide litigation combining 19 lawsuits. ...

In their lawsuit, the plaintiffs said Apple designed its devices to let mobile advertising and analytics companies, such as Google and its co-defendants, collect personal data when free apps are downloaded, including from Apple's website.

They said this was done without permission, and inconsistent with Apple's proclaiming in writing that it would take steps to safeguard personal information against misuse.

Among the data gathered were addresses, genders, ages, identifiers assigned to devices, and functions performed on particular apps. Some device owners said that Apple collected data about their precise whereabouts at a given moment.

But you know that any time Apple "creates" something for their phone, regardless of how long it's been around, they market it as the newest, most unique concept ever, no matter how long it's been around. Soon they'll patent GPS and sue everyone over it. surprised

I love all the Apple haters

I love all the Apple haters out there. When Apple releases a feature it strives to make it better than whats currently available.
I have had an Android phone with turn by turn and its not perfect but I'm sure Apple will improve upon that concept and make it better.
The worst thing about the android market is that you can never get the latest OS "right away". How many phones were able to install android 4.0 as soon as it came out? My friend has a Galaxy Note and he still has V2.3.
When Apple releases a new OS version you can install it on day one. That is why I won't go back to Android and stick with Apple.

I wonder . . .

In addition, TomTom has had a GPS app on the iPhone for a couple of years, with all of the features that I've noticed in the Apple press release. I wonder if the "new" Apple GPS app is actually a relabeled TomTom program, given that Apple has already admitted that the maps will come from TomTom.

With best wishes,

Coming To iOS6: Turn-by Turn Nav With Siri Integration

So, if I unerstand this correctly I may soon be able to buy a new Apple iPod Touch and it will have maps loaded on it that will work off line and essentially be a "de facto" GPS or am I mis-interpreting this?

an iPod Touch will get the maps app - but not turn-by-turn navigation - that is only on the iPhone4S & iPad2 and later devices.

RIght now - You can get a BadElf device that plugs into the current version of iPod Touch charging port, and any iOS compatible GPS app with onboard maps will work just like a stand-alone GPSr. Navigon is one such app.

*Keith* MacBook Pro *wifi iPad(2012) w/BadElf GPS & iPhone6 + Navigon*

The reason for this

@ farrissr

There are at least 3 very capable GPS systems for the iPhone that gives you all the features a stand alone GPS delivers including turn by turn voice instructions and caches all the maps on the iPhone. The only reason Google Maps on the iPhone doesn't have turn by turn is because Google is Android and visa versa.

Apple and Google just don't get along.

TomTom/iOS 6 integration question

Since Apple announced this feature earlier this week, I've been looking at information regarding the existing TomTom app in the iTunes Store. Can you load custom POI files into the app the way you can with a PND? If you can, I would suspect you'd probably be able to do this when iOS 6 is released. Being able to load my own POI files is kind of a big deal for me.

It would be nice to be able to ditch my GPS device and just do it all with one device. I'm not really familiar with TomTom devices, as I use Garmin products, so any information would be helpful.

Thank you.

presently, no custom POIs

TomTom on iOS can not use custom POIs. Nor can Garmin's apps. There's one app that can... CoPilot I believe... last time I looked into that, it was a complex process I did not want to mess with.

We'll have to see if things change with the new iOS.

Actually, there's two--in addition to CoPilot Live, Sygic Aura for iPhone and Android will take POIs (basically you'll want to download them into CSV format and convert them to a "Sygic friendly" CSV format then load them into a POI-converter tool, but it's very doable; Sygic even plays fairly well with loading (converted to Sygic format) POIs via iTunes).

But yes, the more apps we have that can do custom POIs, the merrier grin

Sadly, according to what

Sadly, according to what I've read, only the iPhone 4s will have turn-by-turn navigation. (iphone 4 owners will be left out)

If you have a iP4 - you can have perfectly good turn-by-turn now with one of several apps in the app store.

Well maybe

"If you have a iP4 - you can have perfectly good turn-by-turn now with one of several apps in the app store."

That's true kch but iOS6 on an iPhone 4 will also give you turn by turn navigation and the Fly Over feature if you hack it. Not Jailbreak, just hack it.

Read how it will work here

Yes Sir....

Get an Android phone and all the worries are over...Have had an android for the last 4 years and love the navigation built into it.... Just ordered a new Samsung Galaxy S 111 and can't wait to get my hands on it....there will be no great shakes in the new iphone 5. Just a new connector so you can't use your current one for IPhone, Ipad, IPod and a little larger screen...they will try desperately to catch up to Android..... of course this is all my opinion....
