Google Maps on iOS 6

Since the update to iOS 6, I’ve found I really hate Apple Maps. Is there any way to get Google maps functionality back on my iPad/iDevice?

Hey Rich – thanks for the great question. There IS a way to get Google Maps back on your iOS 6-enabled iDevice, and it’s not too involved, either.

The first thing you’ll want to do is load up Safari and go to maps.google.com. When you get there, a message should pop up along the top that looks like this:

So, like the message says, tap the sharing arrow up at the top of the screen and choose Add to Home Screen.

This will put a Google Maps link on your home screen that you can use instead of Apple Maps. It uses your iDevice’s location services and everything!

Check it out!

    I don’t like or use any of the online maps such as Google or Apple. When I want maps, I go to the king of maps, Rand-McNally and get the most accurate maps there are right on line.
