    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

    Thanks, say for example you click on 'Location is missing', what comes up next?

    You get a Pin and can drag in to the correct place.

    Great, thanks for your help :).

    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.
