While it quickly became notorious for hilariously inaccurate routing, the directions you get from it nowadays are very comparable to Google Maps and other apps in the GPS space. You can get driving directions with Apple Maps and swiftly reach your destination, why not give it a try? Your iPhone is the most easily available nav, fits in your pocket and comes with constantly updated map data.
