This is solved by putting more dough for companies to improve their cartographic databases.

Secondly, we have the images are not as manicured as Google Maps. Not surprisingly, competition has improved its mapping system for the past seven years, which is normal for this type of discomfort at first. The main problems encountered are gloomy clouds and areas that prevent clearly oriented.

Furthermore, it would not hurt to polish an offline mode (currently appears that zoom is supported to some, but probably due to a bug in the application). This is something that does not support Google Maps with too much quality, so it would be a way to stand out from competitors.

Last but not least, should improve its database of restaurants, transportation and shopping, which is the main advantage with Google maps to show off how useful they are. The truth is that this database will grow slowly, but for now they are not comparable.
