As I said yesterday I installed Google Maps and got verbal directions, very helpful. I stay away from everything Google due to privacy concerns. Yesterday as I was searching for Google Maps I noticed Apple Maps as one of the choices, I didn't install it then as I didn't want to do two learning curves at once. But last evening I did a little checking and found that it is very similar to Google Maps with the main exception of privacy, Apple maps doesn't track you.
So did a little reading, amazing all the features it has https://www.apple.com/maps/, did a little comparison reading as well
Look what happens when you put - computer stores in Manzanillo - in English into Google or Apple maps. tons of hits!
When you click on one of the hits Google has a bit more information than Apple Maps.
Oh, on the instore frustration I mentioned in my first post on this thread. That is getting ready to go into the past with the arrival of virtual customer service
How virtual customer service is entering physical retail
Soon you will walk into a store, pull up its app, give it your shopping list and it will verbally guide you in the most efficient way to complete your purchases. Have a question, need help just ask it. Have a complaint or suggestion, talk to it.
I also found Virtual Shopping Assistant, programs that will help you shop online, but I haven't learned much about them yet
What is a Virtual Shopping Assistant?

Edit: All very cool stuff but I didn't see Fixit 911 on the map (the one Jim linked me to) so that fun little pure Mexico scenario that happened yesterday would most probably have never occurred using the new tech. Kinda sad.
