they should be the brunt of jokes! why anyone would put an item on the market for sale without getting the bugs out first is beyond me!!! they cost way to much for this! they should be ashamed but people will buy them anyway. maybe we shouldn't...... then they would get the message.

We don't use GPS or any of those map apps. Heck, we just decided to get a laptop to take on trips. I teased my husband it was for searching for fabric stores......LOL

We wander until we get to where we want to be. Makes for an interesting journey.

That bridge near the Dam (2nd pic) is a doozy. You would have to gain a lot of speed just to make it up the other side.

I was born & raised in Niagara Falls & that is a new one for me. What have they done to that bridge & 1 of the 7 wonders of the world? I would think Apple has some glitches to work out & then some !!!

I downloaded www.maps.google.com and put it as an icon on my home screen so I still have access to google maps until apple gets their map act together.

They do this with video games all the time. You should go onto a gaming forum and read all the stuff they say. You would think Mama and Daddy would have taught those kids a few manners....lol

I for one still know how to read an old fashioned paper map and atlas.

I'm sure they had fun developing the 3-D map technology but... yeah, it isn't quite there yet.
That's Boulder Dam. The melted thing in the front is a bridge that I won't cross over because it's so high. Scary high.

Looks fun to drive on but pretty dangerous. They need to put that in an amusement park

OMG -ain't no way in h-ll you would catch me crossing either bridge --can you imagine how fast you would be going on the down slope - and lord only knows how you would get up the other side. This is definetly where I would make a U turn
