That wasn't on iOS 6 then. Because iPhone navigation since iOS 6 (last week) seems to not be able to hold a candle to Google Maps/Nav!

Has your wife or you used iPhone navigation since iOS 6 yet?

Google Nav is unreliable for us because of the often very weak data signal in my neck of the woods.
Have you, on GNav, tried to set your route while you were still on WiFi, before you started out, and downloaded the maps for that area/country? Because it shouldn't need a data signal once underway. The only thing that does not work without a mobile data connection is the audible voice turn-by-turn assistance. Dynamic maps and routing should be perfectly visible. And miles better than iOS 6 navigation.
