tekstud has been banned many times, but he keeps coming back under new names.
I'm beginning to believe that people like this doesn't have friends in real life.
That certainly explains why it DOES WORK in Manhattan, then, now doesn't it?
The case of SIRI "listening" with its ear plugged with a cotton ball.... Good thing it didn't spell out "oh sloow" before "Barthelona" which I thought was the long lost cousin of Bart Simpson...
They've got 3D for London, Berlin, Oslo, Barthelona,....
I remember just about five or six years ago I was able to tilt the view on terrain and see the 3D rendering of some rugged area in Canada and the US with Google Earth, plus some areas in Europe and Asia. I was on a "Fiber Optic Network" at the time, it was fun to see many places you've been and the even much much more places you've never been. It was to me, just a toy, enough to spend roughly an hour or so of your time wasting the bandwidth.
"many years ago"?
Multiples of 1 is "many"?
You must've forgotten that these buyers of i-gadgets are generally very rich and love flaunting their wealth around. Many of them own a small i-Plane Mini which would get them to where they are going using Apple's "fly-over" view. Apple and its engineers are building many i-Landing strips everywhere, as we speak, in many metropolitan area around the world to cater this ever growing wealthy segment of i-Gadget users.
It's as though the trolls don't WANT to be taken seriously.

Nothing wrong with the old picture of the Brooklyn Bridge. Looks almost the same as the new picture. Why were people complaining?
Gatorguy (of course) has already mentioned they DO have a beta of that.
Finally a big thanks to apple...check the improvements
Can you give us an estimation of how much time you've spent, and posts you've made solely bitching about how useless flyover is? And then, can you consider for a few moments how fucking pathetic that is? Go reassess your life. God knows why you've haven't been banned yet. Many of us love flyover, and think it's useful. Nothing has given me a better overall sense of general city and neighborhood layouts. It's the closest and most seamless thing to reality- yes, more seamless than clicking through photographs taken at a single angle. And it will only get better, more detailed, more accurate, and more expansive. Eventually we'll have the whole world rendered in 3D. Maybe you don't see the value of that, but many of us do. There's no need to parrot the same fucking thing a million times in a million threads, as if your opinion is the only thing that matters. Why don't you just shut the **** up about it, and not use it? You're not forced to, it simply enhances the satellite view. God forbid you actually spend time discussing shit you like and care about- which I have yet to see from you on this board. Again, you should have been banned ages ago- your only goal is to shit on every thread you enter.
As much as you are annoyed by his point of view, it is a valid point and it should continually come up when discussing iOS6 maps.
Flyover is mostly a gimmick in the sense that it doesn't help accomplish tasks that the map app is used for 99.9% of the time. On the other hand, street view is useful when doing map type things. It can actually help you get to your destination in a wide variety of ways. To see how obvious that is, note how many people will bring up google earth and fly around their final destination in order to learn something. Yeah, pretty much nobody does that. On the other hand, people do actively seek out street view when doing map tasks.
With that said, it is neat to look, but just not for any type of actual mapping or navigational purpose. It's more like site-seeing rather than planning a trip or navigating.

While when this story first appeared my iPad had the Brooklyn Bridge correction (and dropped a pin straight on Miss Liberty's head) my iPhone 5 still had the wrinkled bridge.
Over the weekend the wrinkles on the BB went away.
Varying servers with different image files?
In the long run, I agree. More major companies offering competing mapping products is a good thing.
Unfortunately, in the short run, iphone users are saddled with inferior maps.
