Worse for me was realizing that when you click a map direction on a website it no longer brings up The map app with directions to your destination from your current location.

Now your are taken to some dead end Google MaP in the browser that does nothing.

WTH Apple?

iOS badly needs something like Android's Intents.

Absent that, surely you see the problem with a maps.google.com link taking you to Apple's Maps app (no longer associated with Google in any way)?

No surprise that a Google Map link on a website doesn't open Apple's iMap app. More so for me who clicks map links on sites frequently being brought to a dead end in the browser Google Map is a terrible user experience, especially when for the last four years or more the experience has been very useful.
