I don’t have any iThings, so I haven’t tried the new Apple Maps in iOS 6, which appear to have been met with almost uniform disappointment from those who have tried them. But while browsing this incredibly amusing blog dedicated to documenting errors in the new Apple Maps, I noticed one really neat feature: specific state route shields! Most maps (paper or online) use a generic oval shield for state routes, but Apple Maps appears to use the proper route shield, as seen here for Pennsylvania, New York, Louisiana, and Oregon.

This is a nice touch that Google should copy immediately.
