One of the best things to come out of Apple’s iPhone 5 and iOS 6 launch has arguably been their new map system. And by best, if you are an Android user, you finally get the one-over on all your Mac-touting hipster friends. The complaint by users world-wide has centered on the sheer inaccuracy of the Maps locations and route choices, and the strange 3-D rendered surface streets that sometimes shows bridges dropping off canyons or melted down city streets. The outcry was enough to get Apple’s new front-man, Tim Cook, to issue an apology.
Leave it to the Internet to create a shrine so fans and dissenters alike can post their favorite location mistakes. Tumblr users have taken upon themselves and created a site dedicated to The Amazing iOS 6 Maps.

My favorite feature of the new Apple Maps is their post-apocalyptic filter, which makes me feel New York City has been turned into Cthulhu’s playground.
While Apple continues to redesign the wheel, Google is mapping out the ocean floor.
