    Hey. I just updated my system to OS X Mavericks. I was going through the maps application which comes preinstalled. Outta curiosity for the flyover feature, I looked up Big Ben in London and saw the roads around the tower was not proper. The roads and the surrounding appear deformed. I reckon such maybe the trend in other places too. Looks like the Apple maps navigating us into a ditch scare has to come to haunt again!!

    I think that's how the road/pavement is. Doesn't look that odd to me. (I'm local.)

    Apple are using directions data from TomTom, I think. I've used directions on my new iPhone around London the last few days, with no problems.

    As for being led down a ditch: if you follow any satnav directions blindly, without checking the route or reality, then you deserve to be in a ditch.:D

    Postcodes are still screwy

    Search for a UK postcode, e.g. B1 2JP

    Then click on the dropped pin an show its info. It will show an address with a different postcode! (B1 2HQ)

    Copy the shown address and search for that and...

    It will drop a pin in a different place!

    And the information for that pin will show a different postcode! (B1 2LF)

    Hmmm...
