A: Nowhere in the directions that Apple Maps gives does it ever tell you to take your eyes off of the road or rely solely on the directions that the app is giving. If you look at the terms and services you will find language that says as much that you agreed to in order to use the app. You still must be a responsible driver and be aware of your surroundings as circumstances change on the ground that are not reflected in the map.

You can still attempt to sue, but I do not know how successful you would be.
