The same thing happened to me recently on Apple Maps on iOS 5 (Google data) in Chicago. ORD plotted a course to Ord, Nebraska, not O'Hare.



I'm in California, and typing "ord" (not even uppercase ORD, mind you) in the (Android) Maps search bar brings up Chicago O'Hare International Airport-Ord, Chicago, IL as the second suggestion. I'm going to say it's probably not (Google data)

Out of curiosity, what would you expect to show up? If someone said they're going to ORD (I live in California, too) then I'd ask if they have a connection in Chicago.

Probably Fort Ord (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Ord)

They're providing a counterpoint to the poster that said "google data" pointed them to Ord, Nebraska.
