Apple appears to have updated its Maps coverage to add transit directions in Iceland, with a focus on bus routes in and around the capital, Reykjavik.
Apple Maps users in the region can now select public transportation routes when getting directions between two locations.
Transit directions were first added to Apple Maps in 2015 with the launch of iOS 9. Maps initially only offered transit information in a handful of cities, but over the course of the last five years, Apple has worked to expand the feature to additional areas.
Transit information is now live in dozens of cities and countries around the world, with a full list available on Apple's iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability website, although it has not yet been updated to include Iceland.

Not a picture? Not a "tell the map to take you here and you'll see what I mean" statement? You know, you can record your screen from the control center and even take a video of it happening...but no, did you think to do that and replicate the issue to share with the world??
I'm in the camp of "I'll believe it when I see it" when it comes to these type of posts.
We come across issues in every mapping software all the time. And when that happens, some post actual pictures or examples in places like the Maps thread or on the Apple Maps Reddit page. When they do, others try to replicate to see if it is a real issue or an isolated incident (or it never happened as the original poster thought it did). Funny enough, no one has ever posted a picture, video or been able to give an example of Maps telling them to drive off a mountain. In most cases, the worst that has been seen is a misplaced POI (report it) or traffic glitch that gives a slower route.
Google Maps has had me making illegal turns and going in the wrong direction many times...reported and fixed. Waze routed me through a cemetery once and down dirt roads that would have required a lifted 4x4 vehicle. Reported and fixed.
Strangely enough, Apple Maps has never done that type of what I would call "dangerous" directions...ever! Bad POI info, sure, but not in the past 2 years for me and was sporadic before that.
You had a bad experience therefore it’s useless garbage. Thank you for personifying the internet.
I recently tested Apple Maps where I live, looking for four local businesses and a park I regularly visit. It could direct me to one of the businesses. I don't speak for everyone, but as far as my experience goes, I'd call that pretty useless.
Largely accurate is only good enough when that's the standard for the industry. Unfortunately there are several more competent navigation apps out there, and so largely accurate in this case falls far short of the mark.
