it is LMAO but its such a huge shame and could pose a huge problem. i really can't believe Apple released such an un tested product and have not gotten sued for such things in fact they are still selling products like they are the only things on the shelf.

iOS maps has been fine for me. That's the thing though, for 95% of iOS' millions of users, the maps are fine. It's funny that it says the eiffel tower is in the English Channel and all that,....but it doesn't really affect anybody."If Playbook sales don't increase when BB10 drops, I'll eat my T-shirt."

It's expected that the numbers of those who have a "problem" have dropped since Apple Maps have gotten better in the interim.
As for 5% of routing failures happening in major metropolitan areas, it's probably much lower than that where iPhone has significant penetration. The big benefit of crowd sourcing is that places with high population densities will improve rapidly. This has been reported by many in Hawaii, where at launch there was a distinct lack of POI, but has improved dramatically since. The obvious downside to crowd sourcing however, is that in places where very few people have iPhones, it won't improve much, if at all.

(I use "you and your" as a generalization, not pointing at you as an individual, just in case you take offense).

I think the users and Apple are to blame. They were stupid enough to keep going (especially without the proper supplies while driving through the desert), and Apples mapping is bad enough to send them that way.
