It works perfectly for me.
2 words. Lazy media. No they did not have to apologize . 100 million people now have iOS on their devices and there is not the rioting outside of the Apple stores the media lead us to believe would happen due to how bad the Maps supposedly was. Guess what? It's not that bad and is in fact pretty good. Whatever Apple does there will be people in media who find it is easier to get web hits sensationalizing "news" than actual investigating an issue. 
Its also interesting the waited until after the earnings report. This has been in works for a while and they choose this day, week intentionally.
if thats the case I am disappointed as I agree with him. The Map gate was largely media driven as at had become a meme before hardly anyone had gotten an iPhone in their possession. Most if not all reports were just an echo chamber of one or two stories from Canada and Ireland. In Maryland, the map has worked perfectly for me for everything i have thrown at it. Certainly no worse than Google's map.
I know Forestall wasn't popular with the other VP's at Apple and i find him rather odd, but i hope there more to this than Mapgate which i think was over blown by a lazy press eager to drive a negative story on the top selling gadget of the year. the new Maps has worked mostly great for me and as advertised. The new iOS Contacts app on the other hand is completely unusable.. Oh yeah and that empty suit Browett can et the door hit him on the way out.
love ever note and use to keep my notes synced between my home & work computers and my iPhone. Absolutely essential app.
No problems here in Maryland with the maps at all for me. The turn by turn works beautifully, and reroutes very well. I miss street views but will use turn by turn more. I only wish traffic was shown stronger.
I haven't had any more problems with Apples map than Googles. I expect like all things it will get better. This is the press having their first Steve Jobs schadenfreude moment.
Tripled down on secrecy this time!   Seriously, there has never been a year were apples products have been so thoroughly dissected BEFORE they were released. Gizmodo was nothing compared to this year.
