The competition is more than just Apple Maps. And counter-example, here in the Netherlands OpenStreetMap is often much more detailed than Google Maps, and much more up-to-date. Anecdote: two years ago a party I was with got stuck in the country side. In the dark. It was pouring. On Christmas. On a, as it turned out, private road. It was only thanks to OpenStreetMap we could actually tell the road we were stuck on, to call for help. According to Google Maps we were in the middle of a large field, it draw an absolute blank there - quite literately; there simply wasn't anything nearby on the map.

@iHusky: probably all map providers in Poor Maps use OpenStreetMap in one or another form. So, you are using it already.

If your area is not covered, you could ask local government to upload the data into this free database or look into how can you improve it yourself.

Let me start off by apologizing for my ignorance, but how do I set up voice navigation with Poor Maps. I read the note on Warehouse which directs users to Mimic (with a Warehouse link). I installed that dutifully. However, now I am wondering, how do I make Poor Maps talk because it has been awkwardly silent.

On a completely different topic: Am I the only one who thinks the posting on top of this one (#144) is somewhat strange?

  1. Go to "Navigation" from the main menu, make sure you select the correct language
  2. Once the route is found, tap the navigation block at the top of the screen and select "Voice navigation instructions"
  3. Check your device's volume level

There shouldn't be more it than that.
