Of course, it could be argued that's because it contains far less data compared to Google Maps.

Ok, that'll be my final pop at the Maps app. I've flogged that horse, and then some. I'm currently using Google Maps via a browser when I'm stationary, and am flicking between Waze and NavFree for turn-by-turn.

As a side note, Siri still hasn't been properly globalised:

Me: What are the latest football scores?
Siri: Queens Park Rangers was beaten by West Ham last Monday; the final score was 2 to 1.

That was indeed the latest match in the English Premier League. But someone needs to teach him (yes, Siri's male over here...) that we would never say '2 to 1'.

Nice to see it recognising this sort of question though. I might well find myself using it more.
