It remains unclear if the app identification was made in error.

In 2014 Online mapping service Google Maps temporarily mis-labeled a square in central Berlin with its former Nazi-era name: Adolf Hitler Square.

Google couldn't explain the error when contacted by reporters but said they were looking into the matter.

It's not an error. It's just the Turkish version of Google maps.

The Russian version of Google maps has Crimea as part of the Russian federation whilst the Ukranian version has it as part of Ukraine.

Do you mean that the 'trnc' is still unrecognized? :shock: :lol:
