Siri Can't Find It's Way Outside Of The U.S.

Apple Siri LogoI spotted a post by an Israeli Facebook complaining Siri won't give him directions in Israel.

I found it strange being that I know Google Maps has directions in Israel on both the desktop version and on the iPhone version.

Google Maps Israel Directions

So I figured it wasn't limited to Israel and I was right. If you ask Siri for directions in Israel, London, Germany, even Canada, Siri will apologize that it can't assist you. But why? Google Maps and the iPhone can deliver, why can't Siri?

Siri Directions Outside USA

Any clues?

Congrats, you've reported on something that everyone outside of the US has known since day 1 of Siri.

But barely anyone in the US knows. Thanks for your best wishes.

Siri cannot get directions anywhere outside u.s.a apple need to speak up or fix this problem a lot of angry customers out here, oh and there has already been a complaint on a national television show in uk, called watchdog and apple chose not to appear. What are they hiding?

Apple, I'm beginning to think Siri is a flop house tenant.

Maybe because the software is still beta? Beta software is software still in testing and development mode, so complain about it and when a production release of SIRI comes out....provided Apple reads and acts on the beta testers complaints...all should be well.
