Just wondering if anyone has seen any changes to the map app at all this week?

Do we think it will be a big block change?

Ive been using Man UTD football club as a test for changes as surely thats a big one that needs to be fixed and so far i havent seen a single correction implemented.

Did you use the 'report a problem' button?

And you probably can't assume that any change will show up with a few days after complaining.

Reported multiple issues since beta 1 of iOS 6. Nothing has been fixed.

Oh yes, ive been reporting quite a few problems as im sure have tens of thousands of other users. My curiousity was how quickly fixes are being made. I would assume theres a priority system in place but if the high profile errors (eg. duncaster!) aren't being fixed quickly, thats a little more worrying.

Another high profile error in my area (and I wonder if its same for others) is if you use siri to search for a nearby hotel it gives me 15 taxi services. If I ask siri for petrol station i get list of grocery stores!. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have sent in numerous complaints/ reports as well without a peep.

Why can't we assume changes quickly? Other services have been known to address problems in the same amount of time - and often give you a personal, albeit generic form, email to confirm the report.

On day 1 maps revealed a local escort/massage service! On day 2 its gone.

Before anyone asks, no, I don't remember what icon they used for it.

You'd think Apple would have an army of people working on making the corrections ... by confirming them in Google Maps.

FWIW - iOS Maps is fine so far where I am, but I gather there are problems elsewhere.

Not gonna lie, I'm a little disappointed you didn't make a screen capture for that.

Honestly with all the bad press Apple has been getting, I would have been expecting nightly updates. I am equally surprised. They didn't seem to even make any of the obvious fixes that were reported during the Beta testing.

I used to live in a relatively small town. our highschool there was named wrong. i put in a fix to it this morning. i'll be keeping an eye on it to see how long a small fix like that takes.

I wish St. louis, MO was rendered in 3D. The Arch and Busch Stadium would be a couple of cool things to see.

Satellite imagery is being updated for sure. When iOS 6 was launched, it used a very old image of a lot over here. It was completely empty. Today the same lot shows a highrise that was built a year and a half ago.

The Arch is pretty cool indeed. I hate its claustrophobic ball–shaped elevators though.

Wait for iOS 7, they'll update their data to 1999. iOS 9 we'll finally stop finding local dinning establishments in cemeteries.

Posted this in another thread as well, but last Thursday after I upgraded to iOS6 on my iPhone 4 maps didn't know where Children's Hospital was in Los Angeles. It had the two hospitals next to it labeled properly, but Children's just showed as a box. Yesterday I was going to mark it and report it, but it had already been updated.
