Goes well with the dumbest people on earth who still relies on it despite the fact of it being faulty.

i check all my town data when using google maps. i don't want any error with the map.
i know google have good reputation but people sometimes made mistake.

even when i use nokia maps sometimes i found an error. map say i walk in the river not road.

just try check all your town data for apple maps, before its to late,

just sharing
