Why would that be required to validate my argument? Simply demonstrating that Apple Maps lacks services that Google Maps provides is enough to make it an unsuitable replacement. If a feature goes missing, that's a downgrade.
Oh, so we're going to drop the accuracy argument that you've been soundly losing and move to a features argument? Well, aside from the fact that the discussion had nothing to do with features, let's play your game.
Apple Maps - Fly By and turn by turn directions.
Google Maps on iOS - Street view and LACKS turn by turn directions.
Now, it's well known that being distracted from your driving by looking at electronic devices causes accidents and deaths. So, Apple's turn by turn directions could potentially be saving lives. So are you going to argue that Street view (compared to fly by) will save more lives than lack of turn by turn directions causes?

It's almost like the debate whether or not God exists.
That might be a reasonable argument - IF i were claiming that Apple Maps was superior to Google Maps. Instead, I've simply stated that there's no real evidence that it's worse.
You and Vaelian and all the other shills running around screaming about how Apple's Maps is useless and broken and inferior to Google Maps are the ones making a claim - so it's up to you to prove it. Until then, I am simply pointing out the logical flaw in your claims - that you're making an unfounded claim with no evidence. I don't need evidence to point out the flaw in your argument.
Personally, I don't believe that Apple Maps is significantly better (and I never claimed that it was). I suspect that in some places it is (China, for example) and some places it's probably worse, but overall, from a global perspective, I don't have any reason to believe that either one is better than the other by any significant amount. In the US, they're probably both right 99.9% of the time. In Australia, the numbers may be much lower, but no one has shown any reason to believe that there is a difference.

For about the 8th or 10th time:
1. There are x number of places where Apple Maps gives the wrong result.
2. There are y number of places where Google Maps gives the wrong result.
Your claim that Apple's Maps doesn't work is true only if x > y. So where's the evidence that it is?

Apple maps have made a serious error in this instance. Apple need to fix their maps.
Apple does need to fix their maps - and they're doing it all the time. Google needs to fix their maps, too - and they're doing it all the time.
Simply pointing out some cases where Apple Maps fails is irrelevant. There are also cases where Apple gives the right result and Google doesn't (at least one was given in this thread). Unless you can show that x > y, your claim is unsubstantiated.
