Apple's new Maps application has been widely criticized for inaccurate data, here's how you can help improve it.

If you find an inconsistency with maps, either drop a pin or select the location's pin and tap the blue arrow. Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap the Report a Problem button.

Here you can choose to report that 'Information is incorrect', 'Pin is at incorrect location', 'Place does not exist', or report a different issue using the 'My problem isn't listed' option.

For example, in the images below you can see that we reported a minor issue with the location of the Apple Store Masonville. We were able to drag the pin pointing to the location of the store from a bus stop to its correct location.

Hopefully with the help of users and the company's aggressive hiring, Apple Maps will soon become usable.

i've come to the conclusion that the maps are correct. it is just that buildings, parks, etc were not built in the correct places as apple would have wanted them.

Try locating the Sydney Apple Store. It is in the wrong corner! Apple can't even get their store location right.

There are a number of good apps to supplement the built-in Apple maps. A pretty good free one with turn-by-turn voice navigation is Mapquest. Also, Bing and Google maps work pretty well from the browser. This really isn't a reason not to buy the iPhone.

Testing in my area - the maps are just fine - and way better than my experience with the turn by turn in Android. Google might have better maps overall, but the turn by turn was really awful in my Android phone. Could hardly understand the synthetic voice - and it often told me to turn after I already passed the turn. Maybe the phone was to blame more than Android - I don't know. But I do know the Apple navigation features are way more polished (just need some polishing on the data).

Maps is the most used app on my iPhone. I will avoid the iPhone 5 and IOS6 because of Apple Maps.
