angry tapir writes: "Australian police are warning people not to rely on Apple's new mobile mapping application after several motorists ended up in a semi-arid national park where temperatures can reach 46C and there is no water supply. Police in the town of Mildura, Victoria, issued a statement saying they've responded to several drivers who became stranded in Murray Sunset National Park. Apple's Maps application, introduced in iOS 6, shows Mildura near part of the park when it is actually located about 70 km to the northeast, according to police. Some motorists have been stranded for a day without food or water, walking long distances through dangerous terrain to get phone reception, police said."
