iPhone 5 Maps App – 3D Maps, Navigation, Flyover

The chief attraction of iPhone 5 with the all new iOS 6 is the completely new GPS/maps app. Apple ditched Google Maps and wrote its own app which includes a whole lot of new features viz. Navigation, 3D view and much more. We have put together here a few tips for you to help you with the new Maps App.

Get there with Quick Route.

When Maps drops a pin on a location, you can get turn-by-turn directions to that location almost instantly. Just tap the Quick Route button next to the location’s name.

See up close with Flyover.

Switch to Flyover view in Maps by tapping the 3D button. Now you can explore cities from the air as you zoom, pan, and rotate around landmarks.

Tilt and rotate with two fingers.

As you’re looking at a map, use two fingers to tilt or rotate the view. Maps keeps the names of the streets and places where they belong. So everything’s easy to read, and you won’t get lost.

Head north in a tap.

Rotate a map a few times, and you could lose your north-south orientation. But it’s easy to get it back. Just tap the compass icon in the upper-right corner.
