Get Directions using Siri and Maps
We’ve been testing out using Siri for directions, which covers driving, walking and using public transport – though the latter isn’t available in all areas.
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 basic and over a short distance, so we attempted using the turn-by-turn driving directions from the Olympic Park in the east end of London, to Harrods in the west. We found the Siri/Maps combination to be perfect, no dropouts or baffling directions.
It’s definitely worth saving locations you’re likely to be using often as a ‘Favorite’. This allows you to easily call up destinations was asking for directions. Your favorites will also sync with other Apple devices using iCloud.
