Apple’s much-maligned iOS 6 Maps aren’t the only mapping technology being blasted by Australian authorities. They say that Google Maps also recommends potentially dangerous routes, reports “Yahoo! News” (http://macte.ch/jIuwV).
Police in Colac, west of Melbourne, say faults with Google Maps are putting people’s lives at risk along the Great Ocean Road and in the southern Otways. Sergeant Nick Buenen says trucks, buses and tourists are being directed down Wild Dog Road, which is a one-way track, not built for heavy traffic. He says VicRoads has denied responsibility and Google Maps hasn’t responded.
