MacDailyNews Take: Google Maps. For those who like to be tracked.


  1. This is good for me. The trails I usually hike aren’t on Apple Maps, but are on Google Maps. So this is perfect for the Apple Watch.

    Keep in mind people, support from 3rd party competitors validates the platform, bringing more consumers over, and attracting more developers.
