September 24, 2012, 3:00 PM — Here's how you can use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps in iOS 6 on your iPad.
1. Open the Safari app.
2. Go to maps.google.com.
3. Tap the current location icon to see where you are on the map on your iPad.
4. Tap the Directions icon to get directions from your current location to your new destination.
Google Maps works very well as a web app, so you can easily substitute it for Apple's maps application on your iPad.
