Google Maps iPhone vs Web

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anyone noticed that Google Maps is different between the iPhone and the web?

Recently I had one location that was not on Google maps iPhone but was on Google maps web. The bad part being that iPhone map grabbed the nearest match for the street name talking me to the wrong side of town.

Now today Google maps iPhone is plotting a route that is different and longer than one plotted by the web version.

What gives?

It's also different on the Blackberry version. I have no idea why.

Yup Google maps on my iPod Touch is different. I think it has to do with display/fetch APIs, data set optimisation, etc. etc.
