Apple Maps lost in Brisbane
4BC Drive: Victoria Police say a glitch in Apple's new iPhone mapping system is putting lives at risk by sending motorists into isolated parkland.
The latest version of the Apple iOS software for iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch, has been causing heartache for its users since the software was released in late September 2012.
4BC has found the follow errors, problems and omissions in the mapping system that affect the Brisbane area.

Use Google Maps until further notice.James W Tuesday 11 December, 2012 - 11:59 AM
I'v reported that the german club is further down the road than it should be (even though if you search the exact address it goes to the correct location) about 7 times now. It still hasn't been fixeddfgd Monday 10 December, 2012 - 3:27 PM
Just shows that you culd sell anything if you put an " I " in front of it.
Even if it is utter crap.
The I Phone is not the best smart phone on the market.
The I pad is not the best tablet.
The I Book is not the best notebook.
The power of marketing has convinced the mindless masses to buy them regardless.
Apple are now suffering the IBM syndrome of the early 70's.
Most software and apps are aimed at the Apple Op systems regardless of it being an inferior product.
The mindless consumer dictates the market. Not innovation and technology.Rich Monday 10 December, 2012 - 2:59 PM
These bloody things can't find my place either and that means that tradespeople get extremely frustrated.
However they certainly can save a lot of arguments in the car.Bob Lord Monday 10 December, 2012 - 2:36 PM
