Alan, Laxguy... Let me give you my own impressions. I was worried that Facebook integration would take over my contacts. So, I didn't add my sign in information. Yes this takes away some functionality but I can still use the facebook app (which, thankfully, is much improved lately.) Maps... I'm sorry when even Walt Mossberg complains about an Apple feature what can you say. I'm not going to turn into a hater, because I know it will improve. However, let me tell you what the changes were, that were important to me. Just plain wrong: Apple Maps has my street wrong! My street arcs into another street and it labels my part of the street with the wrong name! I already reported it. Neighborhood chaos: The maps are spotlighting neighborhood names that are not in common use (like the Cheviot Hills area of L.A., who's heard of this?) and ignoring common neighborhood names like Century City which are in far more common parlance. Old aerials: Due to a particular event, I can pinpoint the EXACT day the Google plane flew over, and it was June of this year. I can also tell you by looking at landmarks that the Apple plane (or wherever they get their photos) hasn't been here since before August 2011. Not a killer but still. Flyovers are gorgeous but... Google Earth has them too and they're pretty good. Not as good but they are a lot faster to draw. Also a bit of a chip on my shoulder... the flyover stops at the exact entrance to my alma mater. Why is that? None of these are super deal breakers but for now, I will be keeping Navigon for directions and hoping that Google comes through with an app that gives me back street view.
