Apple has officially fixed the problem with its maps in Australia that were leading some drivers into a barren national Park with a distinct possibility of personal injury. According to Australian authorities, a number of people attempting to find a town in the Australian outback of 30,000 people called Mildura became lost in park and subject to high temperatures.
One Australian man was reportedly stranded for 24 hours in temperatures of up to 46°C and three others had to be rescued after becoming stranded from following Apple Maps. Apple has updated the error on its maps and no more people should become lost, assuming they apply the update.
"We've had at least four documented cases," senior sergeant Stephen Phelan said on Monday before Apple made the update. "The map puts it at least 70 kilometres (45 miles) from where it should be. We have had people bogged down in Sunset country."
