Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he's loving the iPhone 5, but was bummed when he was unable to navigate somewhere by voice as he does with his Android phone.

Reviews of Apple's Maps have been mixed at best, but problems with the application may not be as bad as they've been made out to be, according to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Wozniak said he was loving the iPhone 5, but admitted he was slightly disappointed with Apple Maps.

"I tried to navigate somewhere, and I couldn't get to where I wanted to by voice," he told ZDNet Australia. "So, I was a little disappointed, because I love navigation by voice with my Google [Android] phones, actually, since they always get it and are based on a better database."

The Apple co-founder is aware of the highly publicized errors with Apple's Maps, but suspected the severity of the flaws has been exaggerated.
