Eye poppingly bad maps

I haven't written for a while, but I have to now. I have just upgraded my iPhone to IOS6, and I wish I hadn't. (Can I go back?)

The new Apple Maps app is very, very poor.

Just take for example: the village of Chipping Warden, nearby to where I live, is not found in the search and not labeled on the maps.

On the way to here there are two roads labeled "Banbury & Oxford Canal", their is no such thing, it is the Oxford Canal, and its not a road.

The satellite photos are much worse resolution than the previous Google ones. And they are obviously shot years ago, at least 5 years!! As many features have changed since then.

So, bad Apple, bad, bad.

Infact there is no feature of IOS6 that I have found that is better than IOS5...
