Apple Maps Connect Service Comes to Canada, Germany and France


As pointed out by 9to5Mac, Apple has expanded its Maps Connect service to Canada, France and Germany, while also adding two new language options, French and German, to correspond with the regional expansion. For those who aren’t aware, Apple Maps Connect allows small businesses to add their listings to the Apple Maps database, a service that launched in the U.S. last October.

Using the service, businesses can edit or add listings to the Apple Maps database, or even set up indoor mapping within selected areas. These entries usually show up in Apple Maps within a week’s time.

The international roll out of Apple Maps Connect was initiated last month, with the service coming to UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Singapore.

    wow, this just made me realize how far behind apple is compared to google when it comes to making the most of mapping.

    And still no way for users to crowdsource map/road updates. An Ottawa bridge that opened last July isn’t on the map yet. Nor are two permanent road closures a short distance away, and one of those have been closed for 2 *years*.

    Far behind is such a kind word to say. I have never use Apple Map at all.

    I have a look at Apple maps every once in awhile just to see if its made any progress. It hasnt. Still the same atrociously bad errors that I have been reporting from day one. Hard to believe they have made so little progress in such a long time. An embarrassment really.
