Remember yesterday we reported that no thanks to Apple Maps, Australian police had to issue a warning to residents of Australia over a particular route that could lead them into the middle of a national park instead of the city of Mildura? Well it looks like Apple was swift to act supposedly have already addressed the issue. However as it turns out, it looks like it might not 100% be Apple’s fault after all. According to The Register, it seems that this error might be thanks to the official Australian Gazetteer who listed two Milduras. One is the “real” town that presumably was where Australia drivers intended to go, and the other is an entry for “Mildura Rural City” which actually points to the middle of the Murray-Sunset National Park, and it seems that when searching for Mildura, Apple Maps decided to pick up on the “wrong” location. A quick search for “Mildura” on Apple Maps now yields the correct location, so kudos to Apple for working fast!
