The Police department of Mildura, Australia, is warning drivers not to rely on Apple Maps, since the location of that city in Apple's mapping app is incorrect.
According to the Mildura Police, Apple Maps puts Mildura in the middle of Murray Sunset National Park, some 70 km away from Mildura's actual location.
To make matters worse, temperatures in the park can go as high as 46 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Fahrenheit), and there is no water supply. According to the police, some of the drivers that ended up there have been stranded without food or water for "up to 24 hours". Some had to walk long distances through dangerous terrain just to get phone reception.
The Mildura Police have contacted Apple regarding the issue; in the meantime, they advise drivers in that area to "rely on other forms of mapping until this matter is rectified".
Apple Maps has been criticized for inaccurate data and imagery glitches ever since it replaced Google Maps on iOS devices. Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly apologized for the issues, and Apple has recently fired the head of the Maps team.
