+ - Australian Police Rescue Motorists Lost In Forest By Apple Maps->

Submitted by lukehopewell1
lukehopewell1 (1855440) writes "There's no doubt that Apple Maps needs to be fixed, but the sooner the better according to Australian police, who have been wading into a remote national park to save motorists steered deep into the forest by the new iOS 6 navigation software.

Police say that several motorists have already been rescued, adding that some had to walk for up to 24 hours through the forest just to find cell signal.

Motorists are getting lost in the park because Apple Maps has mislabelled the location of a regional town that is actually situated 70 kilometres away.

Until Apple fixes the issue, Australian police are telling users not to navigate using iOS 6 maps."
