    Australia Police discourage use of Apple Maps

    Just thought this was rather hilarious.

    Of course, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt...or in this case stranded in the middle of a national wilderness.

    Thanks for posting David. I saw a snippet over weekend and meant to read and maybe post but didn't have time.

    That's what I love about this community. I'm no longer the main one finding/sharing, the whole community is jumping in and doing the sharing.

    I LOVE IT! And thanks again for sharing!

    Reminds me of people who climb Mt Washington in the fall without packing cold winter gear. Maybe I'm just biased because I'm an Eagle Scout, but the motto "Be Prepared" comes to mind. Too bad the people didn't preview their route, nor have the appropriate supplies for making such a trek. Sure Apple needs to tweak things, but more self-reliance is in order! *end rant*

    Great find! Thank you so much for sharing this, David. I guess it's official now...the Australian Police force thinks Apple Maps stinks.
