It's not much better here in Australia. They finally moved a fairly major town north of Sydney out of being in a national park on Apple Maps (in reality, it's located right next to a major freeway), and finally got the labelling and locations of major landmarks like the Opera House right, but other than that, it's still as pathetic as ever.

Apple Maps has been very useful travelling around Canada. Still shows a non-existent land bridge across the entrance to Charlottetown Harbour in PEI, but I don't use Apple Maps for marine navigation.

I'm not using it. Just checking every now and then if the errors are still there.

I use Apple maps only. In the states.

I drove to NYC a few weeks ago where my printed Google maps was wrong: highway mislabeled, and directions wrong.

Apple was spot on however.

I think everyone's used to hearing reports of how bad Maps is internationally, but here's distressing report about how dangerous Maps is in Alaska:

I imagine someone's gonna chime in on how Alaska is a foreign state? After all, you can see Russia from there?

I've held back from upgrading my iPad from 5.1.1 for the last year, but with 7.0 out it was something I finally had to do (to keep support of a few apps I use).

I checked the maps app out and it seems OK around my area. I then checked it out for Seoul in South Korea (I'm going there on a trip soon).

I couldn't believe it. Over a year after this app came out, with all the problems associated with it, Apple still hasn't corrected the map in Seoul to show the Han river. A city of almost 11 million people!

Satellite data still very out of date

With iOS7, I had hoped that the satellite/aerial photo data might be updated. Around our UK house, it is still showing a large Cupressus hedge we cut down over 10 years ago and near my French house it is not showing town bypasses built 6 to 7 years ago. I can only assume they got the data cheap because it was old and are not prepared to spend the money to buy up to date imagery.

Wow! All the press on the dangerous Maps directions to the Fairbanks airport got some quickish results--but not very helpful from a Map point of view:

" There's a way to get to the Fairbanks Airport, just don't ask your iPhone for help.

Apple has disabled driving directions to the Fairbanks International Airport after a glitch in its maps app guided drivers to the edge of a runway instead of a terminal, airport spokeswoman Angie Spear said Friday. Two times, drivers continued on and cut across an active runway to reach the terminal.

"I wouldn't describe it necessarily as a fix, they just deactivated the directions," Spear said.

Spear said now, when someone puts in the airport as their final destination, "a message pops up and says, 'Directions not available, direction cannot be found between these locations,'"
