Apple Maps :)

Upon reading recent article on Macrumors

I was wondering to myself how your experiences have been with apple maps over the last 3 years. Unfortunately, living in a rural part of the UK means that poi data is horrific, but in major metropolitan areas I have seen a drastic improvements. Do you like the new UI for navigation? I personally thought the older iOS6 one was clearer to follow whilst in the car, but since they ditched skeuomorphism, the banners that are used seem plain and hard to read when the main concentrations is on the road. Your thoughts?
