Samsung mocks Apple Maps in Sydney

Apple Maps app is subject to frequent laughter as there have been reports that these inaccurate maps generally lead you miles away from your destination.

Now as apart of a new marketing trick in Australia  Apple's rival Samsung created a stunt of Apple Maps just to prove the inaccuracy of the apple Maps and score a point on Apple which is dragging Samsung into the courts one lawsuit after the other.

In fact Samsung is apparently not keen on letting Apple's recent Maps mishap in Australia go unnoticed, and is poking fun of its rival in downtown Sydney today.


C|net Australia has snapped pics of a little guerrilla marketing by Samsung featuring a muddied-up vehicle with a tent and other camping supplies. Next to it is a sign that says, "Oops, should have gotten a Samsung Galaxy S III. Get navigation you can trust."

The lost vehicle and signage, of course, are referring to recent incidences of people getting stranded in a wilderness area around Australia's Murray-Sunset National Park instead of the town of Mildura after searching for the latter in Apple's Maps software.
