Australian Police Warn Against Usage of Apple iOS 6 Maps

hypnosec (2231454) writes "Police in Australia have issued a warning asking motorists not to use Apple iOS 6 maps to find their way as it has been noticed that quite a few motorists have been directed to wrong locations where there is no water supply. The Victoria state police stated "a number of motorists were directed off the beaten track in recent weeks", and that the location of town of Mildura on Apple maps is shown to be in the middle of Murray-Sunset National Park which is not the case as the correct location of town is about 70 km from the spot on Apple maps. The reason this warning needs to be taken on serious note is that visitors to the national park are advised to carry enough drinking water or be well-versed with method of making untreated water drinkable."
