Google maps monopoly?

I travel…. a lot. Some times of year more than others, but I clock the miles. Over 100,000km this past year. That does not put me up there with the travel gurus jetting around the world, but I would say my mileage is harder earned. Much of it is done on a motorcycle or other land based vehicle. So maps are important. I have tried Apple maps and have been disappointed. Nothing quite stacks up to Google. Here is an interesting article from The Verge about Google and their massive map making monopoly.

I wonder what is next. They truly are amassing data at a startling rate.
