Apple's homegrown Maps application
I hear that Apple's new maps application is fantastic unless you actually want to get somewhere or find places.
But I'm sure you'll be able to download Google Maps eventually.

No Streetview is a big bummer. Also no transit directions.
"It's okay. The scenarios aren't that clear. But it's good looking. [Steve Jobs] does good design, and [the iPad] is absolutely a good example of that." -- Bill Gates on the Apple iPad
