Samsung pokes fun at Apple Maps in new Ad

Recently Motorola was poking fun at the Samsung Galaxy S3, claiming that their Droid RAZR HD device performed better at certain tasks, although prior to that Motorola released ads making fun of Appleā€™s Maps software.

Now it seems that Samsung has decided to poke fun at Apple Maps in Australia because of a recent situation, claiming that this would never have happened if they had bought a Samsung Galaxy device.

The situation which Samsung is making fun of is that a days ago the Victorian police released a warning to Australian drivers cautioning them not to rely on Apple Maps. This is due to Apple Maps pointing out the ‘wrong’ location which led drivers to the middle of a national park and way off their destination.

Apple has since release a fix for the issue but it may seem that it might not have been entirely Apple’s fault due to the naming of the location.
