The most surprising new iPhone feature that have been declared at Apple’s WWDC keynote in this week was the very much new Maps application that Apple has made with Tom Tom, discarding Google Maps such as Kebab box throw from taxi.
Apple really limbs it to Google with jaw-dropping 3D maps and complete in detail turn-by-turn navigation in iOS 6. But, those headline features will not be supported on hardware launched prior to 2011 like on iPhone 3GS and 4. In other words, you will have minimum A5-enabled iOS devices to enjoy turn-by-turn navigation and Flyovers.
As per the Apple’s iOS 6 preview, turn-by-turn is restricted to iPhone 4S and the 2nd and 3rd generation iPad.
It is little bit strange to know that iOS 6 performance on both iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. Another restrictions are worth mentioning: Map’s Siri functionality is accessible just on the iPad 3 and iPhone4S that will get Siri compatibility after this fall when iOS 6 releases.
While it is coherent that demanding detailed 3D graphics will need the form of graphics oomph served by the A5 chip, it is to say the minimum surprising that Apple’s turn-by-turn navigation will not be backed on iPhone 4 as a 3rd party navigational applications work just good on the iPhone 4 and also iPhone 3GS.
Now we will see how to use turn-by-turn on iOS 6 -
To begin navigation, you tap over navigation button on screen’s top-left corner while in Maps app, and put in location. The default beginning point will always be your present location.
Like an earlier form of Maps, you can then select through multiple routes and choose Start to begin navigating. Worldwide this works like this only.
Thanks to the crowd-sources traffic updates and Tom Tom integration, your ETA will be fairly right as you develop through your journey. The application can also recommend substitute routes you can take to prevent any huge traffic, which might be head.
While journey, you can also toggle 3D version on and off to take in few virtual sites — however presently there are very less in the UK, with clear contenders such as Big Ben as plain as pancakes. Whereas this Flyover features seems very appealing in US cities, in UK it is presently useless, though that might change by the time Apple iOS 6 releases properly.
In this app you can also see overview of route, or list view of all turns, which you need to take. The new iPad and iPhone 4S will get Siri talking with you by every turn you need to take, just similar to standard sat-nav, therefore you do not need to take your eyes off from road to take look of your phone screen.
