The stereotype is there and in some cases it's true. We don't like to admit it happens but yes, sometimes we do get lost and have to ask for directions.
Have you seen the new updates to maps on iOS 6? This might lead me to ask people for directions!
Google had a year left to be the default maps on all Apple products. But when iOS 6 came out, Apple said "no siree bob". We have our own maps that's been in the works for 5 years that we're going to use.
Ugh. The maps at best are awful. Can be considered unuseable. Some places look flat. In bigger cities they are more accurate, but if you live in a smaller city you might have dots where buildings used to be. A football field might be drawn-in lines. A monument might now be shown as a pin-cushion. They now include transit directions which don't work well too. They do look "pretty" though, for whatever that's worth. Have turn by turn directions which is nice.
I love this video below it gives a great overview about the maps. Maybe the coolest thing that can come of this has already happened, a website dedicated to showing the differences in how they look before/after.
