Yea, Apple took a significant step backword in the apple map app that's now the default.

Disagree. The app works great and is way more functional than the Goggle app it replaced. I have used the app all over the country with no problems. I think the media hype about inaccuracies was blown out of proportion. I have not discovered any such issues.

I think they made a mistake eliminating the YouTube and Google Maps apps, but that's just me.
They also had to fork over $21M U.S. to the Swiss National Railway system for using their clock face for their clock app.
Everything else seems to work just fine. I use EarthNC for maps.

I had problems with encrypted wifi on both my iPhone 4S and iPad 3 with iOS 6. The .01 was supposed to fix some of those wifi issues, so far so good.
I like the new maps app, the built in turn by turn navigation is nice. The best new feature is not having to type your password to update apps or use find my iPhone.

I also like the new, much maligned Map app. I use it for turn by turn navigation in my car. Big improvement over my iPhone 3GS. So far, the map has been accurate for my travels in New England this fall.

Thanks guys. I read about problems with the map and hoped that the 6.0.1 update fixed them, so I went ahead with it. No other big changes that I've seen, but then my computer use is remarkably limited.
