In iOS 6 maps I know there is now an optiion to report errors. Could someone print screen what page comes up when it is clicked? iPhone and iPad screenshots would be nice :)

Thanks

Has anyone had any of their reports corrected since beta 1?

I don't think any of mine have.

Maybe they are focusing on new data first and will then sort out the reports in the future betas / golden master / of after final release?

Do you think this "Report a problem" will be a permanent feature or just there during the betas?

I would think it would be permanent. Most mapping systems have a way of reporting errors.

None of my errors have been corrected... yet.

I think it will be permanent. It's a great tool for millions and millions of people to report inaccurate locations, addresses, etc.

How do you report that the outline of something, say a lake shore, is wrong or that a small body of water is missing?

Maps (streets particularly) change so often that Apple would be mad to remove this feature with the final release.
