Apple moved away from the gold standard of the Maps and Nav world, Google Maps, to start their own version. However, unlike most Apple features, the Maps app does not "just work."
The app is supposed to have photo-realistic and interactive 3D Maps, and for some places it does. For the most part, however, the maps lack details and have extremely awkward glitches that either "melt" areas of the map or flatten them. Additionally, there is a lack of transit, Street View, point of interest data and awful traffic view data.
Apple has taken the criticism to heart and is actively looking for devs to help work on the failed app. The listings (many of them) are for "software engineers who will handle development, real-time rendering and overall upgrades to the fledgling mapping service, among others."

And here is the Tumblr page showing off the best fails of the new app: Theamazingios6maps.tumblr.com/
