I am sure people who lives in big cities like Los Angeles, New York, etc will have better experience with maps than people who lives outside these areas. Only makes sense to map highly populated cities with accurate maps first, then when they have time map the less populated ones. I bet the map is super accurate at Cupertino California.
This is probably why some of you do not have problems with maps right now. But putting out beta form of map out before it is ready is just stupid, they could have offered this map as downloadable free app later integrate it as part of iOS in iOS 6.1 or 6.2 when it is ready.

I do and I have.
Every year it's the same pundits whining and crying in their beer because Apple didn't do this or didn't include that!
Since activating it, I have used it for maps, billing programming, music, podcasts, videos, etc. It has not disappointed me.
The iphone 5 is 3 times the machine that my iphone 4 is! And it isn't even jailbroken yet.
I will admit that I prefer Google Maps to Apple Maps, but Apple does have turn by turn and you can choose to use
Siri with maps if you want to. Look at the following 2 tests regarding the Iphone 5 and think again.

For all of you that live in the USA and have no problem with Apple Maps, I am very pleased for you.
As for everyone else, I believe Apple Maps will be a deciding factor in lots of people choosing an alternate OS on their next phone.
I'm sure iPhones will still sell well, but the farce that is Apple Maps will be the deciding factor for a lot of undecided people.

This was a bad call on Apple's part.... Too early to release for prime time... If this happened under Jobs' watch, heads would have already rolled.
