Aussies angry at Apple Map app

Australian police are warning that Apple's much-maligned mapping app is stranding drivers headed to the southern city of Mildura in the middle of a remote state park.

An error in Apple's Maps service places the city of Mildura about 44 miles away in the Murray National Park. It is a 1,900 sq mile region with scorching heat and virtually no mobile phone reception.
