Washington Monument, other landmarks relocated in Apple Maps

Posted: Updated:

Since the release of Apple's iOS 6 mobile platform there has been one thing most of the Internet has agreed on, Apple Maps are really bad.

From fuzzy GPS locations to a 3D feature that makes the Battersea Bridge in London look like it was designed by Tim Burton, there are no shortage of reported flaws in the software.

A new blog has dedicated itself to unearthing the liberties Apple has taken with geography, including leaving out the Philippines at a certain zoom level.

The Amazing iOS6 maps tumblr account has been posting screenshots of reported flaws in the software.

Our favorites include a missing statue outside of the Denver Center for Performing Arts, an Apple Store being the only shop in a busy UK mall and, oh yeah, the Washington Monument pin is located a few hundred yards away from where the monument actually is. (We're sure you'd see the Monument if you went to the spot of the pin, though.)
