Australian Police have been forced to tell their citizens to avoid Apple Maps after having to rescue dozen of motorists recently who ended up in the wrong place.
Some motorists were stranded for 24 hours without any food and water, being almost 100km away from where they really wanted to be.
“Local Police have been called to assist distressed motorists who have become stranded within the Murray-Sunset National Park after following directions on their Apple i-phone. Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km away from the actual location of Mildura,” Mildura police said in a statement. They continued saying: “Police are extremely concerned as there is no water supply within the Park and temperatures can reach as high as 46 degrees, making this a potentially life threatening issue. Some of the motorists located by police have been stranded for up to 24 hours without food or water and have walked long distances through dangerous terrain to get phone reception.”
