You probably are--if you've installed iOS 6 or bought an iPhone 5 and you're stuck with the awful Apple Maps. Stories of misleading or absent information in Apple Maps, particularly involving gas stations and post offices, already are legion and the source of many jokes.

But don't worry. There's a simple workaround: Just put a browser link to Google Maps on your home page. You might not want to limit yourself to Google Maps, either. There are many mapping apps that work on iOS, from MotionX to Mapquest to TomTom, iGo primo, Garmin, and many others.

Hat tip to Betanews.
