    Unable to use in London as all 400 stations are missing, trying to use as a walking  map to find spomething when 400 landmarks missing is a bit hard. In fact no buildings are marked.

    It is not a "bug" but the maps are horrible. Apple is continuously changing and updating the maps, but it will certainly take some time before you can trust the maps. In the meantime you can download (iTunes Store, free) the Google Maps application.

    Should I post the other 398 or should we just consider you to be wrong and purposefully spreading untruths and misinformation?

    Thats not where they are thats where Apple think they are, try coming out of Victoria walking straight across the road and you are in ?????   god knows where on apple but its not where you acually are, I have tried it and its total crap. By the way there are 2 Hammersmith underground stations. Your map just shows 1 pin

     

    Okay I am in Holloway road, where is the nearest station to me?, if I don't know the name I cant find the station.  I know there are 6 but Apple does not show any of them

     

    Etre have you ever been out and used walking maps? I think you need specsavers

     

    By the way I have loved Apple products for 5 years but I think its time to ditch them as they are out of date, badly designed and expensive. We have 5 Apple products in the house and regret getting latest Iphone.

    Instead of wasting your time with useless whining, why didn't you download Google maps?

    Now you broke in this thead of somebody else and started whining. Why not read all answers and do what all have said: download Google Maps.

    You explicity claimed that "all 400 stations are missing" in Apple Maps. I only needed to locate one to prove you wrong. Instead, I proved you doubly wrong. I didn't realize I needed to prove you triply-wrong. Oh well...

    Naming subway stops is not Apple's responsibility and obviously not London's strenths. The pin shows the general location of "hammersmith".

     

    Okay I am in Holloway road, where is the nearest station to me?, if I don't know the name I cant find the station.  I know there are 6 but Apple does not show any of them

     

    When I enter "holloway road london", I get a bunch of pins and the first one that automatically gets selected is the subway station. Since that is one of "any of them", you have been proved wrong 4 times over.

    Do you actually own an iPhone? Are you aware it has GPS? Have you really ever actually tried it? Because when I manually nagivate to one end of Holloway road and search for "underground", I get this:

    Strangely, if I go to the other end of the street and do the same thing, I get an entirely different station:

    I wonder what would happen if I did a similar search for "underground" while zoomed in on the "hammersmith" pin?

    iOS Simulator Screen shot 2012-12-27 1.02.49 PM.png

    Well what do you know? But how would I ever get there? Hmmm, you mentioned "walking maps". Maybe I should try walking directions from "hammersmith" to one of the underground stations.

    By my count, I have proved your anti-Apple Maps misinformation to be wrong 6 times over. Wanna try for a lucky seven?

    Hi richard, the threads here are not to find out who wins the argument, but what solution there is for the issue posted.

    The maps in Maps.app are not everywhere correct. And everbody knows that!

    Apple is working on this and correcting everyday (read the papers and journals), they even hired a new guy to manage that department.

    As long as you do not trust Maps.app, use Googleemaps.app, which is good. Whining about what Apple did wrong does not help at all.

    If you want to report inaccurancies in Apple Maps there is a method to do that from right within the app.

     

    I have done that and seen errors fixed after a while. Don't expect an instant fix though - they have a lot to fix around the whole world.

     

    In the meantime, as has been suggested to you numerous time, use Google Maps, which you may find is more accurate in your specific area than Apple Maps. It's free, so you have nothing to lose.

     

    Moaning here will do absolutely nothing to fix Apple Maps.
