I’ve never really had any problems with Apple Maps (though the lack of public transport information is a pretty big failing) but Google Maps on an iPhone 4 is woeful, it stutters and lags when dragging the map around. Apple Maps is fluid and a lot more responsive. I’d hate to see how this performs on a 3GS.
