Apple’s Maps app has been lambasted enough in the past. The main problem with it is the incorrect positioning of different locations, rendering it nearly unusable. Australian police has now warned the users not to use the app since it can give them wrong directions.

The police has been apparently compelled to issue the warning after it had to rescue a number of people relying on the Maps app. Many of these people, making use of the wrong directions, ended up in the wilderness.

Some even had to survive without food or water for 24 hours before being rescued. Citing one of these many cases, police says that six motorists who originally intended to go to inland city eventually ended up at a national park which was 43 miles off their destination, thanks to the app.

According to the statement issued by the police, “Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km away from the actual location of Mildura.¬†Police are extremely concerned as there is no water supply within the Park and temperatures can reach as high as 46 degrees [Celsius, roughly 115 degrees Fahrenheit], making this a potentially life threatening issue.”

As a result of these unfortunate incidents, police has now advised people not to make use of Apple’s maps app and try their hands at other mapping solutions. Whereas Apple has been trying to remedy the gross mistakes in its app, it seems that the disadvantages of using the app still outweigh the benefit of using it.
