Australia Police Warn : Apple Maps Pose Danger


Australian police this week issued a warning to drivers after Apple’s map service left several people stranded in “life-threatening” conditions in the middle of the 6,330 square kilometer Murray Sunset National Park.

Victoria state police said they were forced to rescue five drivers–some of whom were stranded for 24 hours with no food or water and had to walk long distances through tough terrain to find phone reception. Police said the drivers had been led there while looking for the town of Mildura, located about 70 kilometers away.

“Police are extremely concerned as there is no water supply within the park and temperatures can reach as high as 46 degrees (Celsius), making this a potentially life threatening issue,” the police said in a statement.
