Canada Gets Overhauled Apple Maps Data

Years into its campaign to overhaul its mapping data, Apple has closed out 2020 with more-detailed maps for Canada along with a slew of new features.

But apparently still no cycling directions. I’ll have to keep using Google Maps.

@jcenters, was that your idea to use Tim Hortons in that screenshot? Hilarious. :laughing:


The good news for Canadians is that look around isn’t just in the major cities. I just took a “trip” via look around from Edmonton 150 km (90 miles) north to Athabasca, a town of about 3,000 including secondary highways. Along the way, I explored some little villages, almost all of which showed up via this wonderful feature, and all in high resolution.

Yeah, I was struggling to get a representative view of Canada and I thought a search for Tim Hortons would be good for a gag. I also considered Canadian Tire.
