I have been thoroughly disappointed in Google maps on my Pre-, it takes ages to load and only has the most basic of features so I was wondering what are the odds that HP's close connections to microsoft might move us to Bing Maps?
I would love to see Bing maps rather than Google Maps. Way too slow, and info out of date (which is a big deal in Nevada where the rapid growth has resulted in rapid changes to maps). YP uses Bing Maps, and it works so much better on my Pre, but it doesn't autolocate, so that's annoying.
Just out of curiosity, what do you guys use Google/Bing maps for? I find the built-in Sprint Nav to be far superior to Google, anyway. Haven't tried Bing. You can do searches in Sprint Nav, and you can dial phone numbers from the search results.
A webOS world without Google Maps (as awful as it is) means no Google Transit. I know Bing has transit directions but they're laughable in comparison, they don't even allow agencies to submit data to them.
Both would be better, just like we get an option on who we can have as our default search engine. All the evidence so far points to Bing only though...
I just tried to do simple intersection to intersection directions via bing maps and it forced me to put the intersection name plus the city, state for each intersection before it would give me directions. Is this the future we want?
