Satnav chiefs have been left red-faced after they wiped the Queen's private residence in Scotland off the new iPhone 5.
Tourists typing the name Balmoral into the TomTom mapping application are being redirected to the town of the same name near Brisbane, Australia - 10,000 miles away.
The blunder appears on the latest upgrades of the satellite navigation app for iPhones, iPads and iPods.
The Aberdeenshire town of Stonehaven is also understood to have been omitted from the new software.
The app has come under fire for a number of other errors, including parts of Scotland being obscured by cloud cover on the satellite map view.
Despite the problems navigation chiefs at TomTom stood by their product.
A spokesman said: "We are confident about our map quality and selling millions of satnavs.
"More than 1.4 million TomTom apps for iPhone in the past two years reaffirms this."
