I recently moved to Honolulu and sold my car and have been walking and riding theBus relying heavily on Apple Maps. I also have tried using Google Maps as well so I thought you may want to know what I discovered in using these two map services. As everyone knows, when Apple first ventured into the map world that was dominated by Google Maps, it fumbled the ball. However, the team at Apple has learned a lot about how to throw some curves and speed up the ball to head into the right direction since those early days and has some features that surpass Google Maps now.
Recommending which bus to take?
Both map services give you recommendations on which bus to take and the estimated time it departs, but as you can see in the screen shots AppleMaps allows you to choose which bus number you want (click on GO) while Google Maps doesn’t.
Both apps recommend the best route and are similar.
If you use theBus, Apple Maps gives you more details such as bus stops on your routes and is superior to Google Maps. If you are walking both map services offer similar routes.
