This screen shot taken Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012, of an iPhone's Apple mapping application shows the service placing the city of Mildura 70 kilometers (44 miles) away in the Murray Sunset National Park, a desert-like 5,000 square kilometer (1,900 square mile) region with scorching temperatures and virtually no mobile phone reception. Australian police are warning the public that errors in Apple's much-maligned mapping application are leading drivers headed to the southern city to take a potentially "life-threatening" wrong turn into the middle of a remote state park.
