Get Directions using Siri and Maps

DirectionsThe new Maps app in iOS6 has been given some pretty bad press and it does indeed have a few shortcomings.

While we’re waiting for the idiosyncrasies to be rectified we’ve been testing out using Siri for directions.

We began by asking for directions in Central London between a couple of famous landmarks.

How do I get from The Tower of London to Tower Bridge?

The result was a very pretty looking map displayed in 3D (we already had our display preferences set in the Maps app).

This example is pretty basic and over a short distance so we attempted using the turn-by-turn driving directions from the Olympic Park to Harrods. We found the Siri/Maps combinations to be perfect, no dropouts or wonky directions.
