Reflections and Specularity

I'm a bit confused on the spec map and the reflection map.
Are these mutually exclusive maps?

When I try to use them together, they don't appear to work properly at all.

Reflection map being included turns off my specular highlights.

And if I have a spec map and a reflection map, wherever the spec map is dark the reflection goes dark ( doesn't produce the expected diffuse lighting result as if the spec map was masking reflections ).

Attached are two images with reflection and spec map followed by just the specular map and no reflection map.
