Apple Maps GPS is way better than Google Maps GPS

Because:

* It gives you the information you need (turn arrow and distance to the turn) in a high-contrast, large font. With Google Maps, I glance down and I can hardly read the information – it's dangerous.

* The street lines are thicker and contrast strongly against the background (unlike Google Maps, which is white on cream).

* The view is tilted, like a regular GPS, unlike Google Maps, which is straight down.

Did you know?

I'm a software engineering consultant. This means I can help your company with your software engineering needs:

  • providing temporary manpower for short-staffed software projects

  • helping new software projects get off to a good architectural start

  • improving the performance and reliability of old, legacy software systems

  • doing an important investigation or small project that you've always wanted to do but haven't had time for

Since 1999, I have done software engineering projects for the Canadian government, for Silicon Valley startups, and for established Bay Area companies, for small companies and medium-sized companies, for successful commercial projects and open-source projects. 

Currently accepting small projects. If you have one, email or call me.
