Police have warned that inaccuracies in Apple Maps could be “life-threatening” to motorists in Australia’s searing heat. Officers in Mildura, Victoria, said they had had to assist drivers stranded after following the software’s directions. Some of the drivers had had no food or water for 24 hours.

“Tests on the mapping system by police confirm the mapping systems lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, approximately 70km [45 miles] away from the actual location of Mildura” (see photo) police said.

How stupid must one be to rely on a machine for his safety?

How much must someone trust machines (and not himself) so that he values a phone’s maps more than his own skills and knowledge?

NO. It is not Apple’s fault! Take a map. Learn how to read it. Know the area you travel to. Be a human. Not a FUCKING MACHINE. Idiots…
