    I was just getting ready for a trip to Florida when I thought I'd give Apple Maps another shot. I didn't know the coast of Florida had such a heavy Asian influence when it comes to naming towns!

    I see it too, though it doesn't appear to be the name of a town since, as you zoom in further, it disappears.

    Anyone able to translate it? I'd be interested to know what it says.

    Yet another example of seemingly non-existent quality control in the Maps data. Are they getting this data on the cheap from China?! Granted, I have no idea what language that is, but it'd be pretty ironic if it's a form of Chinese.

    I'm pretty sure that it's Korean. Chinese looks a bit more complex :)

    I've had Google Navigation randomly drop into Japanese so it doesn't only affect Apple!

    It's not Chinese. I believe in most likelihood Korean and I can't read Korean.

    I can't read Korean either but I went to Google translate and turned "St Augustine Beach" into Korean and it looks like the text in the picture :)
