‘Flawed’ Apple maps direct Australian users on ‘road to nowhere’
Sydney: The ‘flawed’ and ‘doggy’ Apple maps service has once again failed to provide correct directions for travel to its users in Australia.
This time the app listed Peninsula Link freeway as the most convenient way to drive to Mornington Peninsula beaches.
But the freeway does not open for at least another week, the Age reports.
A spokeswoman for the consortium building the Peninsula Link freeway, Carol Bartley, confirmed the road was not yet open.
According to the report, Google Maps gave the correct directions for travel through the area.
Last month, Victoria Police warned it was concerned at bugs in Apple's mapping program that saw tourists using the new operating system attempting to reach Mildura instead being sent 70 kilometres away to a national park.
Several of the motorists had become stranded in the Murray-Sunset National Park in hot weather, a police spokeswoman said, ‘making this a potentially life-threatening issue’.
