Keep in mind that Apple Maps, which came with your phone, links to other apps, like Safari, automatically, so that if you look something up on the Internet and click the address hyperlink, Maps will open with that address already entered (I explained that badly, but you get the idea, I'm sure.) This is really handy, is my point, especially now that Apple Maps has been much improved since its disastrous rollout.

Thanks. I had heard bad things about Apple Maps so never really tried to figure it out. That can be my next phone adventure - since even though I have an Apple phone, I probably use about 5% of the available features.

Oh, it was awful when it first came out, just godawful. But Apple improved it a lot, and in the meantime Google Maps rolled out a new design that is, in the opinion of many users including myself, more confusing to use. I still use it, but not as much.
