Maps Data Is Fragmented
In the past, Apple Maps has lagged behind its competitors in terms of accuracy and usability. That’s starting to change, but there’s also another reason why you may want to opt for the native navigation app: privacy.
Apple Maps doesn’t track your exact route. It’s scrambled into different sections before hitting Apple’s servers. More than that, all maps data is randomized so the routes that you take can’t be linked back to you. As Apple puts it: “nobody else should know your entire route. Not even us.”
