For your iPhone i think after the update, Google maps will be replaced with TomTom maps ...

Maybe i've missed it, but will it be available offline by a-gps or will it use your data connection? because clearly it's possible to use the gps antenna (nokia drive).

Thanks in advance!

AnonD-58293, 12 Jun 2012U can either upgrade to ios6 or be stuck with google mapsI'll be honest and say i love google maps its handy while on foot in the citites i travel to, but as a SATNAV I dont know about its reliability.

I'd love to have APPLE MAPS for driving if it uses TomTom maps but google maps for when i'm walking around the big cities.

I'm guessing you will still be able to download Google maps on the App Store if ios6 update removes it?
