“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. […] 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. Anyone travelling to Mildura or other locations within Victoria should rely on other forms of mapping until this matter is rectified.”
That’s seriously bad. There’s no more Apple Maps apologists can say. This is a colossal cluster.
