I managed to get my hands on an iPhone 5 last week. Given that I had a 3GS before this, it's a lovely, smooth treat to use. And I haven't got lost using the maps, so far.
I did seriously consider going to Android - the first time I've really thought that way. The maps debacle, the loveliness of some of the Samsung phones - Apple's dominance of the top end of the market seems increasingly wobbly. I do still love iOS, and I'm very 'invested' in Apple products. But who knows for how much longer?
