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!
