Apple Amping Up Maps to Compete With Google

Apple has acquired GPS software company Coherent Navigation in a move to bolster Apple Maps' location and mapping capabilities. Apple has not had a smooth ride in the mapping business. Apple Maps was blighted with problems and inaccuracies at launch, and the firm apologised to its customers and suggested that they use alternatives like Google Maps. The software has improved since then, and Apple has now boosted its capabilities with the Coherent Navigation buy. Apple rarely comments on acquisitions and has simply released its usual confirmation statement: "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans."
