Get turn-by-turn directions

One enduring Google Android advantage over iOS has been its turn-by-turn navigation feature -- ironic, since Apple used Google's Map apps to deliver directions. Apple has dumped Google Maps (as well as the Google-owned YouTube app) from iOS 6 and delivered its own version.
