Irish Politician Calls Apple’s New Maps “Dangerously Misleading” After Farm Is Labeled An Airport
In fact, Irelandâ€™s Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, said Apple’s new maps app in iOS 6 is “dangerously misleading.” iOS 6 labels Airfield Garden as an airport! Minister Alan Shatter was pretty upset and issued a statement:
I am surprised to discover that Airfield, which is in the centre of my constituency in Dundrum, has, in Appleâ€™s new operating system iOS 6 maps application, been designated with the image of an aircraft.
Airfield, a 35 acre estate with working farm, formal gardens and cafĂ© is of course a famous and immensely popular, important local amenity.
Here is a picture from Sociable.co:
I should note, at the time I am writing this, it appears Apple has removed the airplane symbol from the map.
